The public is invited to attend the grand openings.
The first 200 shoppers at each location 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, Sept. 14, 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 Laveen store will offer locally made products from brands such as Arizona Spice Company, Crockett Honey, Danzeisen Dairy, Hayden Flour Mill and Pickled Perfection.
The Lake Forest store will offer locally made products from brands such as Bloom Honey, Cabo Chips, Gold Mine Flour, Hakuna Banana and Pacific Pickle Works.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new Laveen store will donate unsold and edible groceries to St. Mary’s Food Bank Alliance through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. The Lake Forest store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Second Harvest Food Bank of Orange County through the 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.
