Healthy grocer’s new location to benefit Foodbank of Santa Barbara County through Food Rescue program
PHOENIX, Ariz. – March 21, 2019 – Sprouts Farmers Market will open in San Luis Obispo, Calif. on Wednesday, April 3. The new store 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 San Luis Obispo location at 313 Madonna Road 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 more than 30,000-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, April 6 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 San Luis Obispo store will offer locally made products from brands such as Claravale Farm, Enzo Olive Oil Co., Lark Ellen Farm and Pacific Pickle Works.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Foodbank of Santa Barbara County through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2018, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 27 million pounds of product, equivalent to 23 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.
