Hocker's acquire former Harris Teeter property

Mystery solved!

Speculation has run rampant over what would happen with the Harris Teeter building near Salt Pond since that company announced they were closing their doors there in February 2015.

Hocker’s has reached an agreement to purchase the property. Gerry Hocker told the Coastal Point the family is most focused on getting their existing stores through the summer season right now, and that nothing is imminent for the new property. He did suggest that expanding the hardware store into the G&E Supermarket near Ocean View could be one possible result of the acquisition.
