Sprouts to Add 30 Stores in 2018
Sprouts Farmers Market will open 30 new stores in 2018, including nine locations in the first quarter, including its first store in Maryland.
The new Maryland store – in Ellicott City -- represents the Phoenix-based company’s first entry into the mid-Atlantic region and brings the total number of states with Sprouts locations to 16.
Other new stores include locations in Albuquerque and Las Cruces N.M.; Fayetteville, N.C.; Green Valley, Mesa and Tempe Ariz.; and Sacramento, Calif.
Each store will bring approximately 120 jobs.
Since opening its doors 15 years ago, Sprouts has appealed to everyday shoppers interested in fresh, natural and organic products at affordable prices. Sprouts offers fresh produce, meat and seafood, bulk foods, vitamins and supplements, a deli with freshly prepared entrees and sides, dairy, bakery, natural body care items and more. In addition to thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries, shoppers can find more than 1,800 Sprouts private label-branded items.
Sprouts is dedicated to growing responsibly and has committed to a “Zero Waste” threshold by 2020, as defined by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
