The Harris Teeter grocery store in Ogden Plaza is closing in August.

"After careful consideration and strategic market review, Harris Teeter announced yesterday that it will close its Odgen Plaza location at 6840 N Market St. in Wilmington on Aug. 11," according to an email from Harris Teeter spokeswoman Danna Robinson on Wednesday.

Beginning today, July 25, store hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m., and the store will close at noon Aug. 11.

Harris Teeter’s Odgen Plaza location in Wilmington opened in February 1981, the email stated.

"The company employs 57 valued associates at this location and began informing associates of the store closing on July 23," according to the email. "Harris Teeter made a strategic decision to close this location only after careful consideration. In the coming weeks, the company will work closely with its valued associates to assist them through the closing process. Harris Teeter will offer its associates the opportunity to transfer to other locations."

The email also stated that Harris Teeter will inform customers of this decision through in-store signs and e-VIC communication.

Ogden Plaza is owned by the Cameron family. Cameron Management officials had no comment Wednesday morning on what could potentially replace the Harris Teeter.

The center recently underwent a major renovation, with 80 percent of the center getting a new facade with new storefronts, a deeper canopy and enhanced hardscape features. The center is also welcoming a new tenant, Ashley Furniture Homestore, which is replacing its 12,000-square-foot store that was at 6508 Market St. with the 33,000-square-foot location at Ogden Plaza.

Harris Teeter also operates nearby stores at Mayfaire Community Center off Military Cutoff Road and Lumina Commons on Eastwood Road.
