Dear PoPville – Can a Harris Teeter and a “big grocery store” Coexist a Few Blocks from Each Other?

Dear PoP,

So, I’m confused.  A little while ago, you reported that Harris Teeter will be coming to the area just north of the 9:30 Club.  Now I hear that the DC government is considering a tax break so Howard Town Center (including a big grocery store) can be built just blocks away.  Are these both happening?  Can they co-exist?  I’m all for more retail and grocery store competition in the neighborhood, but this seems like overkill.  What exactly is going on here?

Anyone think a Harris Teeter and a large grocery store can coexist just a few blocks away from each other?
