Mrs. Greenʼs Buys Super Fresh Maryland & Washington, DC Stores to Expand Natural Food Choices For Customers

Deal promises shoppers greater selection of affordable healthy foods

SCARSDALE, NY, June 15, 2011 /CNW/ - Natural food retailer Mrs. Greenʼs Natural Market ("Mrs Greenʼs") is pleased to confirm it has acquired seven Super Fresh grocery locations in Maryland and one Super Fresh location in Washington, DC from Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co.

Following all necessary approvals, Mrs. Greenʼs seeks to upgrade locations and expand product and service offerings to better meet the needs of shoppers who are increasingly demanding more produce and food choices, including healthy and nutritious prepared meals, natural, local and organic foods. "This investment is part of a strategy to grow our concept in under-served regions," says Matt Williams, CEO of parent Natural Market Restaurants Corp ("NMRC"). "We have been exploring several options in Maryland and Washington DC, and this acquisition is a tremendous first step in providing consumers with healthy, natural and affordable food choices."

NMRC operates several food retail and restaurant banners in both the US and Canada, including Mrs. Greenʼs natural food stores in the US northeast and a soon-to-be-opened 30,000-square-foot flagship restaurant and natural food store in the Chicago area. "We believe the American consumer wants greater access to natural and fresh healthy foods in their everyday grocery store, and we continue to explore further investment opportunities to meet this demand," says Williams.

With the tremendous enthusiasm of customers and the support of suppliers and landlords new management will first focus on ensuring a positive transition for employees, customers, suppliers and all other stakeholders.
