  • Sprouts Farmers Market plans to open 30 stores this year. 
  • The stores are in its new smaller footprint — about 23,000 square feet.
  • The grocer will open its next new store in Las Vegas on May 5.

Sprouts Farmers Market is gearing up to open its newest store, a location in Las Vegas that will mark the ninth new store opened by the grocer this year.

As Retail Leader previously reported, Sprouts Farmers Market earlier this year detailed plans to close just under a dozen stores this year while opening 30 stores in its new smaller format. Those store closures were largely deferred by the COVID-19 pandemic, according to Sprouts. The closing stores are about 30% larger than Sprouts’ current prototype, which is about 23,000 square feet.

“We are expanding with our new 23,000 square foot store, and every store opened this year will be in our new format,” said Jack Sinclair, Sprouts’ CEO, during the grocer’s 2022 fourth-quarter earnings call in March. “We're excited about our robust pipeline of more than 80 approved stores and nearly 60 executed leases. We have already opened four new stores in this first quarter with a plan to open at least 30 stores this year, and we are on track to reach our 10% unit growth starting in 2024.”

The grocer also recently acquired its only two licensed stores, both located in California, meaning it now owns all stores operating under the Sprouts Farmers Market name. 

These are the new Sprouts Farmers Market stores that have opened so far this year: 

Nashville, Tennessee 

Sprouts Farmers Market opened its new store in Nashville on January 20, according to a release. The new store, located at 5821 Nolensville Pike, is the second Sprouts location in Nashville.
