Sprouts opens tomorrow morning to the public at 7:00 a.m. But tonight employees and some of the press got a sneak peek at the store located at 143 Wendelwood Dr.
Before we show you some of what we saw, we thought we would share some thing you should know about the grocery chain:
1. All bakery items are made fresh daily. Muffins are just .99 and there are breads, scones, pies, cookies and so much more in the bakery that are fresh.
2.Don’t miss the Juice Bar-there are several different offerings of fresh squeezed juices from orange to wake up juice.
3. Need a quick lunch? There is a whole section of pre-made meals and protein packs that are perfect to take on the go.
4. Newly added to Sprouts—a salad bar. On one side of the salad bar you will find prepared salads and on the other is fresh vegetables and lettuce to make your own.
5. All of the meat is made with no chemicals or artificially enhancements. They even carry Kangaroo and Bison, Elk and Wild Boar meat.
6.Sprouts began as a Farmers Market so its produce section is expansive. Be sure to visit the guys from Melissa’s produce who brought in some exotic fruits like dragon fruit and rambutan. You have to try the pixie tangerines.
7. Look for the dollar deals as part of the Grand Opening. As you enter the store, Sprouts chips are just $1 a bag. A whole section of frozen vegetables are just $1. These prices only last until Sunday.
8.If you are looking for gluten free items; they will be marked with yellow tags on the shelf for easy identification.
9.Concerned about GMO? On the shelf, items that are GMO free will be marked with green tags.
10. Buy in Bulk—in the center of the store is the bulk section. You will find your typical trail mix, nuts and dry goods. But they also have protein powders in bulk for just $6.99 a pound.
11. There is a complete vitamin and supplement section, with well trained employees who can answer all of your questions about supplements. There is also a customer resource computer where you can look up the answer to any question you may have regarding an herb or essential oil,etc.
