Henrico man says he found Harris Teeter logo inside a Ukrop's store

HENRICO, VA (WWBT) - A Henrico county man says he discovered a Harris Teeter logo inside the Short Pump Ukrop's store. Could it be a fluke or another possible indication that the hometown chain is on the market.

One week after we first reported that Ukrop's may be shopping around for a buyer, Daniel Medley spotted his fiancee's favorite flower while buying groceries at the Short Pump Ukrop's. He says he then noticed something a little out of the ordinary about his purchase.

"I usually go in and get her flowers whenever they start to look like they're dying," said Medley.

What was a sweet gesture on this particular flower run Tuesday for his fiancee, left Medley puzzled.

"I'm not a grocery store expert but I haven't ever seen a Harris Teeter in Richmond or anywhere around here and for it to this little packet to somehow end up at a Ukrop's just doesn't make any sense to me," said Medley.

Daniel is talking about a small flower food packet. The label grabbed his attention.

"Flower gallery at Harris Teeter," said Medley.

Like he does every few days, Daniel says he bought the flowers at the Ukrop's in Short Pump but may have uncovered a needle in a haystack.

We traveled to three other area Ukrop's stores including the Short Pump location for a closer look at the fresh cut flower bouquets. But couldn't find another food packet like the one Daniel says came with his flowers.

Daniel's discovery comes on the heels of a grocery trade magazine report claiming Ukrop's may be seeking out potential buyers including Harris Teeter.

CEO Robert Ukrop called it a rumor in a letter to employees but does not deny a sale. Whatever the case may be, Daniel won't let his fiancee go without her favorite flowers..

"Generally about once a week it depends if the little packets make the flowers last longer," said Medley.

We tried to reach Ukrop's for a comment, but our call was not returned.
