Sprouts expanding into three new states

Sprouts Farmers Market announced nine new stores scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2019. The locations include the healthy grocer’s entry into three new markets: Louisiana, New Jersey and Virginia. Four stores will feature an enhanced layout, which debuted last year in five locations and maintains center-store focus on produce. sprout


Sprouts, which currently operates more than 300 stores in 19 states, plans to open approximately 30 stores in 2019.

Each new store will bring approximately 140 new career opportunities to its local neighborhood. Sprouts continues to accelerate investments in team members, including enhanced pay, benefits, leadership development and recognition.

Since opening its doors 16 years ago, Sprouts has appealed to everyday shoppers interested in fresh, natural and organic products at affordable prices. In addition to thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries, shoppers can find more than 2,400 Sprouts Brand items, which meet strict ingredient standards while delivering exceptional value, taste and quality.  

The company continues to grow as a destination for high-quality meat and seafood, and guests will enjoy eye-catching marquee signage and display cases at The Butcher Shop and Fish Market that emphasize the department’s knowledgeable and personal service. Additionally, The Market Corner Deli in the enhanced stores will feature a detached, rectangular island to optimize customer service and convenience by offering made-to-order sandwiches, a salad bar, prepared foods, sushi made in-store and fresh juice.
