Green Zebra Grocery, a 5,600-square-foot health-food convenience store, will open Tuesday in Portland, offering salads, a deli counter, produce department and juice bar besides packaged items. Founder and CEO Lisa Sedlar, who also is the former CEO of New Seasons Market, said the success of the smaller New Seasons store on Hawthorne inspired action on the new convenience store. Two more stores are planned for 2014, and Sedlar also plans to expand her format into Seattle within 18 months.
