Harris Teeter opens at site of former Ocean View Farm Fresh


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. 

The Ocean View store was one of several Farm Fresh locations to close across Hampton Roads in 2018. A majority of the Farm Fresh stores were sold to Food Lion, Kroger or Harris Teeter.

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.
