Green retailer to open Manhattan flagship

Green Depot, a Brooklyn-based retailer selling green building materials and home products -- and sister company to Marjam Supply -- just announced it will open its biggest store to date in Manhattan. The location, Green Depot's sixth, will be located at 222 Bowery between Prince and Spring streets and will cover 3,000 square feet. The company will start work at the site May 1, with completion due in November.

"Green Depot Manhattan marks a significant expansion for our company as well as a fundamental recognition of the growing effort among customers to make healthier and more eco-friendly living choices," said Green Depot founder and CEO Sarah Beatty in a press release.

Update (28 Aug 08) I'm told by the company that while the same family owns both Marjam and Green Depot, they are separate corporate entities.
