Sprouts opens to the masses

11 Aug 2013 by Jeff Herold, No Comments »

Tonight was a busy night for Sprouts Farmers Market, which opened this Wednesday and by evidence of a quick trip for hamburger buns and skinless chicken breasts, it appears to be a hit with the community.

Taking only one half of the previous occupier, Bashas, there is still a large realtor sign on the North side of the main building. Looking inside, however, Sprouts has effectively laid everything out with easy to read signage. Most aisles were very low, so sight was not difficult, especially for a new shopper in their attempts to find the items on their grocery list.

As far as the much-needed hamburger buns, it was very disappointing to find only one brand, one type (though it was freshly baked by Sprouts). It would be expected to see a few different kinds of hamburger or hot dog buns, being a specialty store.

One thing that makes Sprouts stand out from most major grocery chains are the relatively small size of the shopping carts, which make them much easier to maneuver. This can be a plus, since most shoppers come to Sprouts for the extra items they may not find at other stores or the fact that this isn’t a Costco or Sam’s Club experience.

The Hillcrest community has needed a major occupier for the corner of 67th avenue and Deer Valley for a few years. Sprouts seems like a good choice and offers a selection of specialty/diet items for residents, eliminating the need to travel far.
