retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Green Zebra Grocery, the mini-grocery store concept created by Lisa Sedlar, former CEO of New Seasons Markets, is said to have identified three locations for its initial stores - North Portland's Kenton neighborhood, Southeast Portland's Woodstock, and now, Southeast 50th Avenue and Division Street.

The Kenton store is scheduled to open this fall, according to the Oregonian, with the other two to open next year.

The Green Zebra stores are described as offering "fresh, local and healthy wares and feature produce sections, deli counters and butchers."
KC's View:
Can't wait to see what the formidable Lisa Sedlar has in mind ... and it strikes me that Portland is exactly the right market to test what in essence is a health-oriented c-store.
