Green Zebra contemplates expansion
Green Zebra Grocery, a Portland, Ore.-based health-focused convenience store, hopes to open at least two more locations in the next few months — if it can raise the money — according to published reports.
The company — operated by Lisa Sedlar, the former CEO of New Seasons Market, also of Portland — opened its first store 14 months ago. Plans for a second location at the end of 2013 fell through, and plans for another store, originally scheduled to open last summer, have been delayed awaiting completion of financing, Sedlar told OregonLive.com.
“As soon as we raise the money we’ll go full-speed ahead,” she was quoted as saying.
The original store is 5,600 square feet. The second one will be 6,400 square feet, with added space for grab-and-go items, the reports said.
