Harter House Gift Cards

I’m sharing this late—about two weeks after it happened, but I
just have to give Wes a pat on the back—and you should too! He went above
and beyond to help me find the hazelnuts I needed for a recipe… he
searched through mixed nuts, picking out the hazelnuts, all because they
weren’t available by themselves anymore. Wow. So many employees would just
say, “Sorry, ma’m, no hazelnuts.” What customer service, and what a
dedicated employee.

I just want to compliment your store on the fantastic customer service! My family recently moved to Nixa from Detroit. I decided to check out all the grocery stores before I picked “my” store. By far Harter House exceeded my expectations and will be the store I shop at. The butchers, stockers, cashiers, and baggers were all very friendly and helpful. The bagger pushed my cart to my car and even offered to load them. Thanks for the great shopping experience, it made my day!
