The metro’s first Sprouts Farmers Market has set an opening date in south Overland Park.

The specialty grocer is scheduled to open at 7 a.m. on Jan. 8 in Corbin Park, 6821 W. 135th St., just east of Metcalf Avenue.

The 23,360-square-foot store will sell fresh produce, bulk foods, vitamins and supplements, packaged groceries, meat and seafood, baked goods, dairy products, frozen foods, natural body care products, household items and more.

Grand opening events include discounts and free items.

Sprouts is based in Phoenix, Ariz., and has more than 165 stores.

In other Corbin Park updates, the owner of the shopping center said he is negotiating with Spin Neapolitan Pizza to open a 3,500-square-foot restaurant in a new building for a mid-2014 opening.

Spin officials declined to comment.

Nation’s Restaurant News named Spin a “Breakout Brand” earlier this year. The locally owned chain is known for it hand-spun, stone-fired authentic Neapolitan pizza. The restaurants also sell fresh salads with house-made dressings, appetizers, soups, sandwiches and gelato.
