Mrs. Green's Natural Market announced plans for major expansion last month, as the organic and natural food chain intends to open at least 20 new stores this year in the Northeast, Midwest and Canada. The growth plans are dramatic, considering the company opened its 19th store last month (in West Windsor, NJ). Store number 20 is expected to open next week in New Canaan, CT.
According to the company, Mrs. Green's Natural Market provides customers "with safe, healthy food options that will help them to take care of their health, while also taking care of our planet."
The stores also carry Fair Trade coffee, fresh-baked artisan breads, and locally sourced food and beverages.
Mrs. Green's goal is to reach 100 stores over the next few years. The company is a subsidiary of Irvington, NY-based Natural Markets Food Group, a privately owned business that includes retail food stores and restaurants.
