First S.C. Sprouts To Open In Simpsonville June 13Jun 01, 2018 03:35PM ● By Kathleen Maris
Sprouts Farmers Market will open its 300th store in the country in Simpsonville, S.C. on Wednesday, June 13. The Simpsonville Sprouts will be the healthy grocer’s first store in the state, helping meet the growing local demand for fresh, natural, and organic products at great prices. Sprouts will celebrate 16 years of operation later this year and has experienced rapid expansion to the eastern U.S., supported by its fresh distribution center in Georgia.
“As Sprouts continues to expand from coast to coast, we’re pleased with our guests’ response to our unique combination of health and value,” said Sprouts Chief Development Officer Ted Frumkin. “We’re looking forward to celebrating the opening of the 300th Sprouts with our new neighbors in Simpsonville.”
Sprouts will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new store located at 2200 Woodruff 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 approximately 31,000-square-foot store. To celebrate the grand opening, the Sprouts Healthy Communities Foundation will make donations to local nonprofits Mill Village Farms and The Generous Garden Project by Thrive Upstate.
Sprouts has been a driving force for innovation in natural and organic foods since its inception, and has paved the way for numerous niche brands, many of which were first carried by the healthy grocer. The Simpsonville store will offer locally-made products from South Carolina-based companies, including Black Mountain Chocolate, Bee Well Honey Farm, Hampton Acres, and Slawsa.
