Harris Teeter Is Coming To Clayton At Flowers Plantation
It’s official, the long awaited, much anticipated, greatly sought after news is finally here. Harris Teeter Is Coming To Clayton At Flowers Plantation. Harris Teeter is opening a supermarket in Clayton at Flowers Plantation at the corner of Buffalo Road and Hwy 42 East.
Harris Teeter for those of you who don’t know is considered by many to be the top of the line in supermarkets, and people will travel miles to shop there, only now they won’t have to!
They are known for their produce selection especially organics and their meats, their bakery and service. This will round out the selections in Clayton as we now have a Lowes, a brand new Food Lion at Riverwood which is awesome, Food Lion on Hwy 42 East, and a Wal-Mart on Hwy 70.
So if it’s food stores you want then Clayton has them, there are also lots of smaller stores and the Clayton Farm and Community Market is open Saturdays through October 27th where there are locally grown organic fruits and vegetables and meats available.
The area around Flowers Plantation has seen steady growth over the years without the madness and overbuilding of some areas through the boom times and now is poised to take advantage of the return of the real estate market which we are seeing every day around here. The schools in the area are some of the best and newest and as of now are still on a traditional calendar. The commute to Raleigh and Research Triangle Park is now a lot easier with the opening of Hwy 64 and Hwy 540. Raleigh Durham International Airport is 45 mins away.
I have been saying this for a long time,the benefit to being East of Raleigh….. is the beach is a day trip! New ER hospital on Hwy 42 West, Caterpillar on Hwy 42 East expanding and adding over 200 new jobs, plus they now have their R&D division here in Clayton, five minutes from the new Harris Teeter. Novo Nordisk expanding on Hwy 70, Grifols on Hwy 70 expanding. Hwy 42 East being widened to handle the traffic.
