Navy Yard’s big week continues with Harris Teeter opening.

From a press release:

“Harris Teeter grocery store in The Yards will open its doors to the public on November 5th, 2014 at 401 M Street, SE as the first full-service grocery store in the Capitol Riverfront neighborhood.

Harris Teeter joins an impressive amount of retail that has opened over the past year in the Capitol Riverfront. A total of 9 restaurants – including Osteria Morini, Bluejacket Brewery, Ice Cream Jubilee, and TaKorean – have opened within the past 12 months, and another 3 restaurants are expected to open by the end of 2014.

The new mix of retail in the Capitol Riverfront makes this neighborhood a place where people can live, work, play, and shop.”

  • I hope it’s not a mini-Harris Teeter, like the one in Adams Morgan.

  • I was just there and it’s so beautiful! Great addition to the neighborhood, it was definitely needed. I haven’t been to the HT in Adams Morgan for a few years, but I’m pretty sure this one is bigger. The produce dept was amazing and they have lots of prepared food options, which will be great for people working in the neighborhood.

  • I’m sure there’ll be lots of folks sucking at the Teet this weekend

    I hope this alleviates at least some of the load currently handled by the Safeway at 4th and M SW!

  • Not only was it mobbed last night, as expected, but the half price lunch items and related promotion activity left it mobbed at lunch today – it would be better if the price for the hot bar were a bit higher and the items were not all sold out (pricing 101 please) – did they not expect people to descend in such numbers for lunch?

    Anyway, its a good looking and very large store. This area is no longer a food desert of any kind.

    Being that there really wasn’t any grocery options at Navy Yard prior, this store should do really well.

  • Enjoy it while it’s still good. The Harris Teeter at Potomac and Pennsylvania has descended into a cesspool of rotten produce and overpriced staple items after an initial strong start.

    • truestory. I live closer to the Penn Ave HT but will shop at the NoMa one instead.

    • I don’t know what your staple items are, but mine are generally cheaper at that HT than anywhere else.
      Produce selection could be better (can’t always count on finding less popular items like fennel) but rotten produce I’ve never seen. I’ve been shopping there regularly since it opened.

      • Ok, rotten was overstating, but generally poor/wilted produce. I personally don’t love shooing away fruit flies to get at onions or searching through bags of potatoes to find one that hasn’t passed it’s sell by date.

        • The one in NOMA has maintained pretty nicely and has been open for quite a while now. Hopefully the HT on Penn is an anomaly. But, you’re right, it is pretty bad.

  • Was there last night when it opened, the place is huge! Lots of prepared foods, local craft beers, and strangely, a really large wall of cakes. Very excited to go there regularly.

    • I was at the Penn Ave HT looking for a basic birthday cake two weeks ago, and the closest thing I could find was a flourless chocolate raspberry cake (delicious, but not really what I was looking for). So it’s good this one is filling the void.
