    Harris Teeter Moves Into Greenville

    Within the past year, magazines like Vogue, Southern Living and Food Network have declared Greenville, South Carolina a culinary destination.  Creative chefs are flocking to the Appalachian Foothills with innovative offerings besides the stereotypical meat and three vegetable traditions of southern cuisine.
