Harris Teeter in Spotsylvania

I checked with Harris Teeter spokeswoman Catherine Reuhl today just to get a few more details on what the company was going to do with the yard space it recently rented at the Interstate 95 Commerce Center at 9351 Northeast Drive in Spotsylvania County. Harris Teeter has been mentioned as a possible buyer for Ukrop’s Super Markets. See the below two blog posts for more details on this story.

Here is Reuhl’s response:

For the past three years, Harris Teeter has operated with a ‘relay’ station in Northern Virginia so as to better serve our stores in Maryland, Delaware, and Northern Virginia. We recently leased 43,560 sq.ft. of industrial yard space in Fredericksburg to park the empty trailers that cannot be stored at the relay station.

For the record, that relay station is at 8501 Jamison Drive near the intersection of U.S. 1 and Massaponax Church Road in Spotsylvania. Reuhl said HT is still doing its "due diligence" on the possible 500,000-square-foot distribution center in King George County.

Anyway, I realize this isn’t really blockbuster news, but I wanted to pass it along.
