NORFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — A Harris Teeter grocery store opened Wednesday in Norfolk’s Ocean View area — nearly a year after the closure of the area’s Farm Fresh.
The area’s closest grocery stores were 3 to 4 miles away following the Farm Fresh closure. Residents in Ocean View told 10 On Your Side they were desperately waiting for a new grocery store in the months immediately following the closure.
A grand opening for the new Ocean View Harris Teeter was held Wednesday morning.
The store’s opening comes one week after a former Farm Fresh store in Hampton was opened as a Harris Teeter.
