The company, which is reportedly eyeing a rapid rollout of the Mrs. Green’s banner in several markets and a potential initial public stock offering, had acquired the Maryland and D.C. stores in 2011 from A&P, which had operated them under the Superfresh banner. The stores were remade as hybrid natural/conventional stores.
