The Goods Mart combines the efficiency of convenience stores with on-trend, healthy snacks and foods, and is bringing its latest shop to NYC

Concept convenience store The Goods Mart recently expanded its retail locations from Los Angeles to New York City. Located on Lafayette Street in Soho, the food & beverage retailer is housed in a space that was formerly a Mason Jars dessert shop.

The Goods Mart sells products that are organic, locally-made, non-G.M.O. and free from artificial dyes, preservatives and flavors. And unlike at other stores, single-serve plastic bottles are not available, as the brand refuses to sacrifice environmental concerns for convenience. It also replaces preservative-laden, syrupy drinks with healthy juice or kombucha.

Product selection is slimmer than at its convenience-store competitors. “Instead of having 50 kombuchas, we have six or seven,” says The Goods Mart founder Rachel Kupta to The New York Times. To add to the homey appeal, customers can sit in the lounger while tasting free samples. After purchase, consumers have the option to tip, which will go to a local nonprofit. “More than anything else right now, we want to know who our neighbors are,” said Krupa to The New York Times. “We want to talk to people, we want to have this connection.”
