The Harris Teeter store in NoMa could open as early as Wednesday, a manager reached by phone said today (Monday) as a corporate representative declined to give a reopening date.
The 1201 1st St. store closed last Monday following sightings of mice by a District health inspector and customers. The District Department of Health cleared the store to reopen last Wednesday, but Harris Teeter opted to close and sanitize the store.
Employees could be seen working on restocking shelves this afternoon. Workers were stripping every case and shelf in the store to ensure that they meet the company’s pest control and sanitation standards,” company spokeswoman Danna Jones said.
“Any product that does not meet our strict quality guidelines will be discarded,” she wrote in an email.
The store pharmacy has remained open, letting customers pick up their prescriptions, Jones said.
