Sprouts Store Front in LongBow Marketplace
5918 E. LongBow Parkway Mesa, AZ 85206
Sprouts Farmers Market is growing again and now with a new concept! They are one of the fastest growing retailers and best performing grocers in the country. They lead with farm fresh produce and attract everyday shoppers interested in natural and organic products at competitive prices. Their dedication to innovative concepts that drive positive customer experiences is demonstrated by their new concept store in Mesa, AZ that opened in January 2018. This store delivers not only the expected health and value of a Sprouts store but also mixes in local flavor, refined styling, and extra amenities.
At the close of 2017, Sprouts operated 285 stores in 15 states. They are adding 9 locations in Q1 with their Maryland store marking entrance into the Mid-Atlantic region. Q2 continues this rapid expansion with the announcement of 6 six new locations. This will bring their store count to 300 by the end of June. Concept stores that are similar the one in Mesa, AZ have not yet been announced.
This store builds on the Sprouts strategic pillar of innovation, while keeping to their average 30K square foot build. Notable areas include a circular deli, fresh juice bar, expanded salad bar, The Market Butcher, The Fish Market, and bottling stations to measure your own spices, honey, and olive oil. Their expansive vitamin department features bulk cut soaps and a make-up counter. As welcoming as the friendly staff that greeted me was the spacious patio for customers to relax and enjoy as well.
My visit to this store left me anticipating my next and saying what I’ve heard from so many over the years, “I Love Sprouts.”
