The Burn has learned that the Harris Teeter supermarket at the Broadlands Marketplace plaza is soon going to get a major make-over. In the company’s parlance, they’re turning it into a “flagship” store.

There will also be a new seating section that includes a bar where commuters can wait with their coffees and snacks until their bus arrives.

    I like the changes except for the Starbucks. We should support small businesses like Blend. Plus, their coffee is better.

      Is Blend that good? I live right around the corner and haven’t found a reason to visit yet.

    Meh…. I’m trying really hard to get excited about this but just can’t. I’m one of those commuters, and I can promise you that people will not wait inside a grocery store for their bus to arrive. If I want to eat at a grocery store, I’ll just go to Wegmans……

    Blend is local yes, but not good with their coffee. Very happy to have a local close starbucks again!
