Sprouts Farmers Market will open in Greensboro, North Carolina, on Wednesday, Aug. 7, making it the fifth Sprouts in the state.
Sprouts will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the new 30,000-s.f. store at 3357 Battleground Avenue before doors open at 7 a.m. The public is invited.
The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase, and muffin and coffee samples will be served to everyone in line before the doors open. Every customer on grand opening day will receive one free reusable bag with purchase.
Weekend shoppers are invited to explore new natural and organic products during Taste of Sprouts on Saturday, Aug. 10, when guest favorite and trending items, including a selection of exclusive Sprouts Brand products, will be sampled throughout the store.
Local selection and zero waste
The Greensboro store will offer locally made products from brands such as Big Spoon Roasters, Buchi Kombucha, Carolina Kettle, Nello’s Pasta Sauce and Ran-Lew Dairy.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Second Harvest Food Bank of Northwest North Carolina through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2018, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 27 million pounds of product, equivalent to 23 million meals.
Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities. Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
