Harris Teeter grocery store review – the prices at this local grocery store are outrageous.

Harris Teeter grocery store review

I went to my local Harris Teeter and was blown away by their ridiculously high prices throughout the store.

I happened to need some whole and skim milk last night. My wife sent me out at late at night to get these and a couple of other items. I didn’t feel like going far to go to the Wal-Mart in dealing with the insane staff and customers there so I decided to give the Harris Teeter grocery store near me a try.

The Harris Teeter is only about 2 miles from my house and therefore it is more convenient. Unfortunately, as I found out when I got there, the prices are not convenient at all. it was unreal. For instance the roast beef that was buying at Wal-Mart for six dollars a pound was $10.99 a pound for the exact same brand of roast beef at Harris Teeter.

When I went to pick up some beer I noticed that the cases of beer (24 packs) that I usually buy for around $14-$16 at Wal-Mart or BJ’s or five or six dollars more at Harris Teeter. Milk was more expensive. And just about anything in the meat department was ridiculous. Nothing was close to the price of Wal-Mart at all.

It looked like years here took the price of Wal-Mart and then added a 25% or more markup to the entire retail price. I don’t know how Harris Teeter can possibly stay in business charging such high prices on all the foods and products in their store. I did notice that they didn’t have a lot of customers while I was there.

The customers they did have looked like the richer college students – the ones that didn’t care what they were spending because they were spending daddy and mommy’s money and not their own. I hear that they’re busier during the day and not during the night that must mean develop a lot of young people that just have money to burn in their pockets.

As I kept looking through Harris Teeter I noticed even their name brand foods were still too expensive. Everything regardless of what I looked at from ice cream to children’s foods to snack foods and even frozen pizzas was just priced too high compared to Wal-Mart or BJ’s wholesale club.

Now you can go and say that Harris Teeter is more upscale than Wal-Mart and has products that Wal-Mart would not have. That may be true, but BJ’s Wholesale Club has them for far cheaper also. I left Harris Teeter and have never ventured back. It’s not that I don’t have the money, instead it’s the fact that I don’t blow my money foolishly and stupidly.

I respect the money that I have instructed as far as it will go within reason. If more people did this then we would not have had this serious recession we just went through. the housing bubble would have been greatly minimized and the amounts of foreclosures on the market would have been far less.

You know what Wal-Mart needs to do? They need to go and open up a supercenter right next to any and all of the Harris Teeter grocery stores and put them out of business.
