New Year's resolutions of eating healthy and organic will be even easier in late January for Huntington Beach residents, thanks to the opening of a new Sprouts Farmers Market at Warner and Goldenwest. Famous for its quaint market feel, bulk bins and organic focus, the national neighborhood grocer promises "healthy living for less."
Inhabiting the former Ralphs location at the busy intersection, the 33,000-square-foot space marks the second Sprouts in Huntington Beach and is set to open on Wednesday, January 22. Mirroring other Sprouts stores, the HB spot will offer fresh produce; bulk grains, nuts and sweets; deli, meat and seafood counters; fresh-made sausages; baked goodies; specialty beer and wine; gourmet cheese; vitamins and supplements; cruelty-free beauty products; and a host of natural, organic and gluten-free items. Word on Facebook is that the store will also feature "over 40 freshly roasted coffee flavors."
Sprouts Communications Manager Lauren Rosenblum says of the new market: "Huntington Beach residents can look forward to knowing their butcher by name, finding great deals in every aisle and always having access to quality, healthy ingredients for their next meal." She adds, "Our team members are eager to get to know their neighbors, answer questions and share their knowledge about Sprouts' fresh, natural and organic products."
While grand opening events and details are still in the works, do note that market hours are 7 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. We'll update this post once more information becomes available.
UPDATE, JANUARY 22: Early birds lined up outside the store Wednesday morning to score opening day deals, which include numerous items marked down to just $1. Opening day events and deals run through the weekend. Per a Sprouts rep:
Today we are featuring a number of dollar deals and samples throughout the store, a "15 is your lucky number" promotion in which every 15th customer receives a coupon book and all customers get a free green reusable bag upon checkout.
On Saturday, the first 100 customers will receive free sandwich coupon books upon purchase at checkout. We also have 20 golden tickets worth $20 off your purchase hidden throughout the store and will be giving away Boar’s Head packages at random.
Sprouts Farmers Market #277 is located at 6942 Warner Avenue, Huntington Beach, CA 92647.
