List includes 10 locations in Florida and four featuring a new format
PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 5, 2021 – Sprouts Farmers Market today announced a series of new stores, including four with a new, smaller format in line with previously announced strategy, and one store relocation. The healthy grocer will open approximately 20 stores this year. Sprouts is known for offering a unique farmer’s market experience through an open layout fostering customer engagement, and a curated selection of innovative and responsibly sourced healthy products.
“This year, Sprouts will densify its footprint with more stores opening in California, Florida and Texas,” said Dave McGlinchey, Sprouts Chief Format Officer. “We’re excited to introduce our newest format in four stores in the second half of 2021 and plan to feature this format with even more stores next year, when we will be expanding at unit growth of 10% or more.”
Among the openings are 10 stores in Florida where the grocer has been growing rapidly since 2018 and currently operates 23 locations. Stores in Dania Beach, Fla., Grand Prairie, Texas, Phoenix, Ariz., and Smyrna, Ga. will introduce Sprouts’ updated, smaller format which averages 25,000 square feet, and one store in Tustin, Calif. will be remodeled this year with the new layout.
“Our refreshed format highlights the unique experience Sprouts is known for while emphasizing product innovation, attributes and departments meaningful to our target customers like high-quality meat and seafood, frozen items and plant-based products,” said McGlinchey. “The smaller size is very efficient and keeps produce at the heart of the store while maintaining our familiar open layout that will offer more assortment of products for a treasure hunt shopping experience.”
Sprouts will also open two new local produce distribution centers this year, one in Aurora, Colo. in March and another in Orlando, Fla. later in the year. The new centers will drive supply chain efficiencies by positioning stores within 250 miles of the centers.
