If you are in Hickory or live near Hickory, you know just how weird this looks to me. The “new Lowes Foods” opened last Monday, June 18th. I had the opportunity to check it out on Wednesday.
I didn’t buy anything. I walked around in the store, and it was like an episode of the Twilight Zone. Everything is in the exact same locations as everything was when it was a Harris Teeter. Except everything that was Harris Teeter brand is Lowes Foods brand, of course!
It was a weird feeling.
I will still be shopping at Lowes Foods, but not at this one. Partly because of principle. Partly because I drive right by another Lowes Foods to get to this store. (That makes it a no brainer.)
I am still sad for all the employees who lost jobs or had to change jobs. Hang in there!
