Healthy grocer’s new location to benefit Feeding Tampa Bay through Food Rescue program
PHOENIX, Ariz. – January 3, 2019 – Sprouts Farmers Market will open in Clearwater, Fla. on Wednesday, January 16. The new store will be the healthy grocer’s fifth Tampa Bay-area location and will help meet the growing local demand for fresh, natural and organic foods at great prices.
Grand Opening Details
Sprouts will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new Clearwater location at 23656 US Highway 19 North before doors open at 7 a.m. The public is invited to join the festivities and shop among thousands of healthy items offered throughout the 32,000-square-foot store.
The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase and muffin and coffee samples will be served to everyone in line before the doors open. Every customer on grand opening day will receive one free reusable bag with purchase.
Weekend shoppers are invited to explore new natural and organic products during Taste of Sprouts on Saturday, January 19 when guest favorite and trending items, including a selection of exclusive Sprouts Brand products, will be sampled throughout the store.
Local Selection and Zero Waste
Sprouts has been a driving force for making healthy food affordable and accessible since its inception and has paved the way for numerous natural brands. The Clearwater store will offer locally made products from brands including Daikin Dairy, Humanitea, Kombucha 221 B.C. and Terrapin Ridge Farms.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new Clearwater store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Feeding Tampa Bay through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2017, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 23 million pounds of product, equivalent to 19 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities. Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
