Lisa Sedlar is leaving her post as CEO of Portland's favorite grocery store, New Seasons Market. The good news is that she is following a life long dream of opening a new neighborhood friendly "healthy convenience store" concept throughout Portland's many neighborhoods. The idea of combining a small grocery/convenience store footprint with fresh local produce, meats, bakery and grab-n-go convenience has long been the desire of many national grocery chains. Sedlar envisions her new small-format stores fitting in well with the smaller scale of many central city neighborhoods. There are certainly more available locations for a 5,000 square foot grocery/convenience store than there are for a 50,000 square foot Fred Meyer... Imagine the possibilities!
Urban Works Real Estate is proud to be exclusively representing Lisa Sedlar. We've got a great location in the works for the first store... Please let us know if you have a good location in your neighborhood too. Congratulations Lisa!
