Sprouts Farmers Market, one of the fastest-growing retailers in the country, will kick off its new store in Nall Hills Shopping Center with a 7 a.m. ribbon cutting Wednesday.
The 32,000-square-foot store, at 9628 Nall Ave., will have several special events and giveaways.
▪ Free muffin and coffee samples for those in line before the doors open.
▪ One dollar deals throughout the store.
▪ The first 200 shoppers in line receive 20 percent off their initial total purchase.
▪ Every 15th shopper will get a Sprouts coupon book.
▪ Customers also will receive a free reusuable bag with purchase.
Specials continue through the grand opening weekend, including a coupon book for five free sandwiches to the first 200 customers on Saturday.
Sprouts stores feature fresh produce, bulk foods, dairy, meat and seafood, fresh baked goods, vitamins and supplements, and natural, organic and gluten-free groceries.
Sprouts opened its first store in Chandler, Ariz., in 2002 and now has more than 230 stores in 13 states, including area locations in the Northland, Lawrence, Lenexa, Lee’s Summit and Overland Park. It took part of the former Nuts and Bolts True Value space in Nall Hills.
Nall Hills was built in 1974 and is currently being redeveloped. Other tenants include Tuesday Morning, Bike America and Firestone.
