Sprouts To Debut In Marlton, NJ As One Of Nine New Stores To Open In Q2
Sprouts Farmers Market earlier this month announced nine new stores scheduled to open in the second quarter of 2019, including two in the Northeast. The locations include the healthy grocer’s entry into four new markets: New Jersey, Maryland, Virginia and Louisiana. Four stores will feature an enhanced layout that caters to the latest shopper trends through optimized customer engagement. The healthy grocer plans to open approximately 30 stores in 2019.
The new stores in the Northeast will be in Herndon, VA (494 Elden Street) and Marlton, NJ (237 Route 73 South). In addition to the new states it is entering, two additional Sprouts will open in Florida (Jacksonville and Oviedo), one in Arizona (Mesa) and three in California (Los Angeles, San Jose and San Luis Obispo), all states where the retailer currently operates.
Currently, the Phoenix, AZ based healthy grocer operates 300 stores in 19 states. During 2018, Sprouts entered three new states — Pennsylvania (where its Philadelphia store is reportedly the highest volume unit in the chain), Washington and South Carolina
The Jacksonville, Los Angeles, Oviedo and San Luis Obispo stores will feature Sprouts’ newest operational and design enhancements that highlight department destinations and promote customer engagement throughout the store. The design, which maintains center-store focus on produce, debuted last year in five locations.
