Sprouts in the Northland, FINALLY!
By Christina Albrecht
Did you hear, Sprouts, the cities newest indoor Farmer’s Market, is coming to the Northland (rumored to be opening January 2015)?
Over the past few months, I have often been jealous that all the good “Healthy” stores are located mainly on the Kansas side of the state line. Whole Foods, Trader Joes & Sprouts are all located south of the river or in Kansas. I’ve been left to feel that we Northlanders have been left to our own devices. I mean who has the time to drive clear across town once or twice a week and honestly, who has the energy for that? Not to mention that most of us pass at least one Price Chopper on our way home from work. OK so maybe these are just the jealous ramblings of a Northlander, but still, don't we want these options too? Well, now we will have it!!
What is Sprouts you may ask? Sprouts officials make the following claim:
“Sprouts is a healthy grocery store offering fresh, natural and organic foods at great prices. Since 2002, we've been committed to providing our customers with the best-in-class service—and to improving it every day…You'll find mountains of fresh fruits and vegetables, barrels of wholesome grains, nuts and sweets, full-service deli, meat and seafood counters—complete with homemade burgers and sausages. Roam around our spacious aisles and you'll find fresh baked goods, eclectic beer and wine, gourmet cheese, sensibly-priced vitamins and supplements, and thousands of natural, organic and gluten-free groceries.”
Basically, it is a healthy grocery store inspired by farmer’s markets. It sounds similar to Trader Joes and they claim to offer the best prices in town on local produce!
Not only will we Northlanders have the opportunity to shop at this fresh, new store, it's also bringing the opportunity for at least 100 jobs to our area! To apply you can click here.
So, is this going to be the event of the year for the Northland? I don't know if I'd go that far, but I'll let you be the judge. However, I do know that we here at The Harris Group cannot wait for the Grand Opening! You can bet your bottom dollar at least one of us will be there on opening day!
