Sprouts Farmers Market Announces Expansion

PHOENIX, Dec. 23, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Sprouts Farmers Market, Inc. (the "Company") (Nasdaq:SFM), one of the fastest growing natural food retailers in the country, today announced its expansion with six signed leases in Kansas and Georgia.

The chain of specialty grocery stores expects to open a new store in Overland Park, Kan. on Jan. 8, 2014. The 23,360-square-foot store will bring an estimated 100 jobs to the Corbin Park Shopping Center at 135 th Street and Metcalf Avenue.

Phoenix-based Sprouts has quickly become one of the top retailers catering to shoppers' desire for small-footprint natural grocery stores. The Company offers fresh, high-quality, natural and organic foods at affordable prices.

"We are excited to be a part of the Corbin Park project and thank the community for welcoming Sprouts Farmers Market," said Doug Sanders, Sprouts' president and chief executive officer. "Sprouts brings a deep commitment to community engagement and advancement, and we are proud to be a neighbor in this great region."

Sprouts is also expanding into the Southeast with its easy-to-shop stores and unrivaled customer service. Plans are being developed for new locations in the greater Atlanta area, including Snellville, Cumming, Dunwoody, John's Creek and Norcross.

"Sprouts is bringing more than 500 new jobs to the greater Atlanta area and is poised for significant growth," Sanders added. "We look forward to expanding the Sprouts brand and introducing 'healthy living for less' to an even larger customer base."
