Snapshot: Harris Teeter - Maybank, James Island, SC

Harris Teeter
Opened: 2013
Previous Tenants: Piggly Wiggly
Location: 1739 Maybank Hwy, James Island, Charleston, SC
Photographed: January 2022
We are just to the southwest of downtown Charleston as we are moving south along Folly Road, which takes us out to Folly Island via James Island. This Harris Teeter is at the corner of Folly Road and Maybank Highway, and its address is on Maybank, which runs along its side. By the way, this store is on James Island (Google Maps still identifies this as part of Charleston, which is why I'm labeling it as both), and from here on out you can say goodbye to the mainland because we'll be completely on the islands for the rest of our time in South Carolina! We'll be spending a few days on James Island, then moving on to Folly Island to the south, then on to Johns, Kiawah, and Wadmalaw Islands to the west.
The 40,000 square foot store was previously a Piggly Wiggly, and it appears to be part of the same group of stores sold in 2013 to Harris Teeter that the Sea Island location was. We toured that one yesterday.
Head north on Folly Road a mile and you'll arrive at the Earth Fare we saw a while back at Folly Road Boulevard and Windermere Boulevard in West Ashley. And for the next few days, we're going to be heading south on Folly Road towards Folly Island, but while we won't be seeing every store along Folly Road we'll see quite a few. Come back tomorrow for our next one!

Update Local expert Carlton Swift says: "Not terribly important, but the Piggly Wiggly here was torn down because it was allegedly in very bad shape."
