New Seasons Market opened its newest store March 23 in North Portland. The 25,000-s.f. location at 6300 N. Lombard Street is the grocer’s third North Portland store.

The University Park location, which anchors a community of busy students, professionals and families, features a laid-back outdoor seating area with recycled milk jug lounge chairs. Inside, abundant New Seasons chef-prepared selections—from hot pot pies to sandwiches and charcuterie—present convenient grab-and-go meals to enjoy onsite or at home. New Seasons says its essentials round out the store’s offerings: peak-of-season regional, organic produce; an abundant range of specialty diet choices; sustainably sourced meats and fresh seafood; and an organic bakery, alongside everyday grocery classics.

“New Seasons is a place where residents can connect with the community, discover new foods and engage with the friendly staff and their neighbors,” said store manager Erin Leiker. “This store, with its central location, great food and community gathering places, is going to be a commons for this neighborhood. I’ve lived here for years, as have many of our 120 staff. We’re all eager to…welcome in our neighbors.”

New Seasons has equipped the University Park store with location-based beacon technology. When it pilots the program later this year, customers can opt in to receive in-store mobile offers.

The building’s exterior was designed by Mackenzie and the store interior was conceived by LRS Architects and JB Consulting & Design. Deacon Corp. managed construction of the project.

New Seasons currently operates 19 stores in Washington, Oregon and California, as well as five New Leaf Community Market locations in Northern California.
