    Hope to open by Thanksgiving.

    Shoppers in Prince George’s County will soon have another option when it comes to groceries.

    New York based Evergreen is taking over a space in the 2300 block of Iverson Street in Temple Hills.

    A Safeway store occupied that spot for about 60 years until about three months ago.

    The new store will focus on fresh produce and seafood, and plans to complement larger grocery stores like Wegmans, rather than try and actively compete against them.

    Evergreen officials plan to open the doors by Thanksgiving and hire about 60 employees.
