Sprouts Farmers Market Opens First Store in Louisiana
LOUISIANA - It’s the least-kept secret around the ANUK office: Andrea is obsessed with Sprouts. Anytime I get a chance to write about the organic grocer, my heart goes pitter-patter—and for good reason! The retailer continues to make exciting moves in the industry, and its latest is setting my heart aflutter. It announced recently that it will be opening its newest store in Louisiana, a first for the company.
The new store is set to stand at 30,000 square feet and will employ roughly 150 employees, according to local news source The Advocate. It will house many of the features we Sprouts-lovers all know and love: fresh fruits and veg, a butcher bar, and ready-to-eat meals.
2019 has been a year of major moments for Sprouts. It found a replacement for its last CEO; created an aggressive expansion plan across the Eastern Seaboard and the Southeast, and sold off a distribution center. As the retailer continues to make bold moves within the grocery space, how will the rest of its competition work to make countermoves?
