Harris Teeter will unveil its first location on the Isle of Palms next week.
The grocery store will open at 8 a.m. Wednesday in the Island Center at 1513 Palm Blvd., which was the site of the former Red & White supermarket.
Piggly Wiggly Carolina Co. had plans to replace the Red & White with a high-end specialty grocery shop, but it sold the property to Harris Teeter last year with a bundle of its other supermarkets in the Charleston area.
The new 25,000 square-foot Isle of Palms location will feature a full-service deli and bakery that will serve made-to-order sandwiches.
The store will be open daily from 6 a.m.-midnight.
Another Harris Teeter is about three miles away in the Seaside Farms shopping center, on the Mount Pleasant side of the Isle of Palms Connector.
Kmart in West Ashley is in its final days. The discount retailer will close its store at 1535 Savannah Highway on Sunday after 40-year run on the so-called Charleston Auto Mile.
Until then, the store will continue liquidating merchandise at up to 75 percent off. Afterward, the Charleston area will be down to two Kmart locations, at 4570 Ladson Road in Summerville and at 8571 Rivers Ave. in North Charleston.
A company affiliated with Hendrick Automotive Group bought the 13-acre West Ashley Kmart property for $10 million earlier this year.
On the Boulevard
A new Latin American restaurant, The Americano, will soon replace the former Next Door dining establishment at 819 Coleman Blvd. in Mount Pleasant. John Adamson, owner of The Rarebit, is opening the venture with business partner Brandon O'Mahoney, who will be general manager. It's expected to open by the end of May, according to The Americano's social media posts. Adamson and O'Mahoney couldn't be reached for comment Wednesday.
Two for one
An Atlanta Bread Co. location that went out of business in North Charleston this month is being redeveloped. The former soup-and-sandwich cafe at 8966 University Blvd. near Charleston Southern will be divided into two separate units, which have been leased to Starbucks and Firehouse Subs. The new tenants are expected to open some time this summer.
Tuesday Morning, which closed its Mount Pleasant store a year ago to make way for the Southern Seasons outlet on Coleman Boulevard, has landed in a new location East of the Cooper. The Dallas-based seller of closeout household merchandise will soon open in the Belle Hall Shopping Center at 680 Long Point Road, adjacent to PetSmart. A specific opening date hasn't been announced.
