retail news in context, analysis with attitude

Sprouts Farmers Market said yesterday that on Friday it will open its first mall location in Orange, California – the company’s 10th store in California and 27th overall.

The store is described thus: “Aisles of colorful produce, many from local growers and farmers whom we know and trust, along with an outstanding selection of all natural meats, fresh-off-the-boat seafood and a wonderful variety of grocery, bulk and bakery items, all come together to create the ultimate farmers market experience.”

The retailer, which promotes itself as offering “right-from-the-earth foods at down-to-earth prices,” has another two California openings – in Huntington Beach and San Diego – scheduled for next year.
