Greensboro, NC -- Harris Teeter is reducing hours at seven of its around-the-clock locations in the wake of a string of overnight armed robbery attempts.
A spokeswoman for the Matthews, NC-based chain said the following stores will now be open from 6 a.m. to 1 a.m.:
- Oak Hollow in High Point (1589 Skeet Club Road)
- Adams Farm in Greensboro (5710 W. High Point Road)
- Garden Creek Center in Greensboro (1623 New Garden Road)
- Lawndale in Greensboro (2639 Lawndale Drive)
- Battleground Oaks in Greensboro (4010 Battleground Ave.)
- Westridge Square in Greensboro (3357 Battleground Ave.)
- Kernersville Marketplace in Kernersville (971 S. Main Street)
The spokeswoman says the change is a response to a rash of armed robberies at local Harris Teeter stores. Between Christmas Eve and mid-May, seven different Harris Teeter locations were targeted by robbers.
Some of the stores hit by the crimes aren't affected by the change, while some that haven't been targeted will see new hours.
No workers will see their hours reduced because of the changes, the spokeswoman said, but some could work different shifts.
Police in Winston-Salem, High Point and Greensboro are working together to investigate the robberies. They're asking people who might know anything about what happened to contact their local police.
