HAMPTON, Va. (WAVY) — A new grocery store is now open in Hampton.
Crews spent months working at the Willow Oaks Shopping Center — off Fox Hill Road — to transform an old Farm Fresh into a Harris Teeter.
This Farm Fresh was one of several across the region that closed its doors in 2018 after the stores were sold to Food Lion, Kroger and Harris Teeter.
Mayor Donnie Tuck and city council members were on-hand Wednesday to cut the ribbon on the new stor.
Tuck said the opening of the store eliminates a food desert that had been created in the area.
