CHARLOTTE — The decision of North Carolina-based grocer Harris Teeter to switch to a different brand of full-service deli products has upset the ousted business.

The Charlotte Observer reported Wednesday that Harris Teeter has long carried Dietz & Watson high-end deli meats and cheeses. But now the chain plans to carry the Boar’s Head brand.

Harris Teeter is based in Matthews. A spokeswoman says customers have requested Boar’s Head for years.

Twelve of Harris Teeter’s 187 stores have already made the change.

Dietz & Watson President and CEO Louis Eni says Boar’s Head requires supermarkets carrying its products to stock no other premium deli choices. He says his company never demands
exclusivity.

The newspaper said Boar’s Head declined to comment.

Settlement reached in Charlotte Taser death

CHARLOTTE — The city of Charlotte has reached an out-of-court settlement with the family of a 17-year-old grocery store employee who died after being shocked with a Taser.

Multiple media outlets report that attorney Ken Harris announced the agreement Tuesday.

Harris represented the family of Darryl Turner in a lawsuit against the city.

Turner worked at the store but had refused to leave after being asked by the manager. Police say Officer Jerry Dawson fired his Taser two times, once for 37 seconds.

Dawson was suspended after a review board found he was justified in using the Taser, but his prolonged use of the weapon was not.

Harris would not disclose the settlement amount. The city confirmed the agreement and has denied any wrongdoing.
