Harris Teeter
I tried shopping at this new-to-me store this week. I’m still trying to figure out how the eVic specials work as the deal I purchased didn’t ring up what was advertised in my email. Hopefully I can keep working out the kinks as this store seems promising for good deals. If anyone has tips or tricks for shopping at Harris Teeter, I’d love to hear them!
