Officials with Harps Food Stores, Inc., say their existing Harrison location, formerly Country Mart, located at 611 U.S. Highway 62-65 North Bypass, will be relocated. The store’s new home will be in the former JCPenney building in Ozark Crossing, located at 814 U.S. Highway 65 North.
The brand new 37,000-square-foot Harps store will offer residents of Harrison and the surrounding community a large variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, along with Harps Black Angus beef, all natural pork, and poultry; deli and signature bakery products, as well as well-stocked grocery, health and beauty care, dairy and frozen departments. The existing pharmacy will also relocate to the new store.
Officials say construction will begin soon, with an anticipated grand opening in fall 2021.
