business news in context, analysis with attitude

A new New Seasons - dubbed internally as New Seasons 2.0 - opened a couple of months ago in the Palisades section of Lake Oswego, Oregon, and I think this beautiful store shows both the evolution of the format as well as what is possible with the greater resources available from its parent company, Good Food Holdings, and its ownership, South Korean conglomerate E-mart.  (There's also a new division CEO, Nancy Lebold - formerly of WinCo and Kroger's Food4Less - bringing a nice new energy to the company.). At the same time, the 19-store retailer is maintaining its traditional commitment to the communities it serves, local vendors that it supports with things like micro-loans, and products that serve its broader sustainability goals.
