This used to be a Harris Teeter I believe. My folks said there was some territorial deal between the two grocery chains that had the HTís in Hickory switched to Lowes. Anywho... There were two main beer sections. The typical macro/micro beer isle with dogfish, etc. and a local section up front. The local area was quite nice. There was a wide selection of carolina brew and I picked up 3 mixed six packs of new to me locals. It was nice that the mixed sixes are a set $9.99. There were also growlers of Olde Hickory on the shelves, but no apparent growler station. So, not sure how fresh those were. Overall a great stop if youíre looking for local ticks.

Nice big clean open grocery store. Different design than you find in most grocery store leads to good visibility but it can get a little disorienting.The staff is what you expect, prices are OK, parking is aplenty. There is a HUGE beer selection here. At least half of it is macros but there is a good selection of NC and American micros with a smattering of foreign beers. Pretty large singles selection in a build your own 6 pack. Not too many bottle shops in Hickory, so this is a good place to stock up if you donít expect to find any rarities.
