Green Grocer to open Dallas store on Greenville Avenue
In partnership with Artizone.com.
DALLAS Looks like Greenville Avenue is becoming the new foodie street: Green Grocer Dallas, a Chicago company, announced that it has partnered up with Artizone.com to open a store in Dallas at 3614 Greenville Avenue, in the old Canine Commissary space at Martel -- just a couple miles up the road from the new Trader Joe's set to open in 2013.
The release describes the store as "an intimate, neighborhood market featuring organically grown, locally produced food and specialty items," with approximately 4,000 square feet of retail space. Green Grocer Dallas is positioning itself as an alternative to large grocery chains with products from the small, local vendors that Artizone features with grocery items, gifts, and food to-go.
Founders Gary Stephens and Cassie Green started Green Grocer in Chicago in 2008; Dallas will be the second location.
Artizone.com is an online market for local food shops and a home delivery service which launched in Dallas in 2011. It sells everything from produce to Holy Ravioli to bread from Empire Baking Company to desserts from La Duni.
