The 53,000 square foot Harris Teeter will anchor the Shops at Erwin Mill, an 89,901 square foot shopping center developed in partnership with Raleigh-based Chartwell Property Group. Located at the intersection of Ninth Street and Hillsborough Road, the grocery store will anchor a larger development that features best-in-class local and national retailers in small shop building located along Ninth Street, on-site parking and sustainable features such as LED lighting.
“We are excited to have Harris Teeter opening on Ninth Street in time for the Thanksgiving holiday,” shares Chris Widmayer, vice president of Investments at Regency Centers. “Harris Teeter’s presence on Ninth Street will transform this neighborhood and offer amenities that appeal to Duke University and local Durham family, such as a large selection of organic, natural and specialty foods, wine and beer, a hot Asian-food bar, and a sit-down eatery with a Starbucks.”
The remainder of the center’s 36,901 square feet of space will be filled by retail and restaurants, including Pure Barre, Panera Bread, 140 Salon & Dry Bar, Massage Envy Spa and The Duck Shop among others. The diverse mix of offerings is designed to attract those consumers looking to meet all of their needs at one easy location.
“We had been looking for a central Durham location for some time before finding the Shops at Erwin Mill,” says Sandy Rogers, owner of Massage Envy Spa. “It provides an ideal setting in just the right location. We are excited to join the other merchants there.”
