Is Harris Teeter building in Carolina Beach?

Judy Royal

For many years, Food Lion has been the only game in town as far as a large, national grocery store chains on Pleasure Island.

That all changed in August 2010, when Harris Teeter announced plans to build a Carolina Beach store, but don’t plan on bringing your shopping list there anytime soon.

Although the signs marking the future site at 1000 N. Lake Park Blvd., Carolina Beach [Map this], have disappeared, plans have not changed, according to company officials. But there haven’t been any details released since the announcement, and construction is not scheduled to start in 2011, said Harris Teeter spokeswoman Jennifer Thompson. So it will be at least 2012 before the new location becomes part of the Pleasure Island grocery lineup.

Harris Teeter opened its first store in the southern part of New Hanover County in 2007 at Beau Rivage Marketplace. It is about 6 miles from the northern tip of Pleasure Island.
