Charlotte, NC - Looking for British Foods

Can anyone tell me if CCA British Foods is still open? If so, where?

Also, if they are not, does anyone know where I can find a good selection of British Foods? Thanks for the help!

  1. What specific foods are you looking for? I know there are plenty of Harris Teeters in Charlotte, and the ones in Raleigh supply an increasing number of products. I also noticed that the Kroger here has an extensive range of international products. And here, I know I can turn to the Indian shops for things like biscuits, chocolate, tea, and Heinz baked beans.

    1. I think CCA closed a few years ago.

      I still get the occasional email from the former proprieter who seems to have some connection with the British pub on Providence (Big Ben?) and sometimes has access to British specialty items.

      1. Here in Columbia (SC) I see PG Tips tea, Heinz salad cream, and Heinz Baked Beanz at Fresh Market, so I'm sure you could get those items there. If you're willing to make the hour-and-a-half trek here, there's Lil's Olde English Shoppe which also sells a few items like Walker's crisps and she also gets some blood sausages I think.

        1. Lots of British foodstuffs at Trader Joes.

            As usual, brent K and Lynnlato are spot on with their suggestions. I recommend you might want to try World Market. Their food section in the back contains a lot of British foods. I miss CCA!

          2. CCA Closed and was amalgamated into Ru-San's

            The South African market has some items of interest for the British market. They are out on Rt. 74 in Matthews

              I've seen a few British items pop up @ Bombay Bazaar on South Blvd, next to Manifest Records.
