NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — There’s a light at the end of the tunnel for Ocean View residents struggling after the closure of the area’s Farm Fresh. 

They’ll have to wait around a year, but a Harris Teeter grocery store is coming in the summer of 2019, according to the grocer.  

The announcement comes after several residents reached out to 10 On Your Side following Farm Fresh’s sudden departure, many of which struggling to find fresh food because of transportation issues. 

The area’s closest grocery stores — Food Lion and Walmart — are about 3 to 4 miles away.
