(May 13) Supermarket chain Harris Teeter, Charlotte, N.C., plans to open a 60,000-square-foot store in Columbia, Md., May 20, and it will open another one in South Baltimore in 2010, the Baltimore Sun reported.

Local residents believe Harris Teeter will fill a void in a place that has few shopping options. The stores will be the chain's first in Maryland.

"This is about as high-end as you can get for a grocery store," said developer Mark Sapperstein, in the Sun article.
