    I got to shop today at Sprouts as well. Luvtoq - I said the same thing about the displays being low. (personally, I like that) Helps with the "open" feeling even though the store isn't huge. I got a bunch of the produce deals too - asparagus (which we're eating for dinner), melons, mangoes, peppers and apples. They also had a great deal on Zevia sodas - a 10 pack is BOGO (with their bogo's you have to buy 2) but that makes them 4.50/ea - a fantastic price for that brand. They were out of a few things but their very friendly staff told us that the items were on order and should be in stock in a day or two. (7th Gen Laundry detergent and a couple of the Sprouts soap scents)

    Parking was a bit of a challenge but that's just the way it is at the very beginning. I think it's a nice store overall and they also carry some interesting local items - had a big display of them over past the bulk bins. Hope they keep up the deals! =)

    Finally got to the Sprouts today. I was really impressed with the selections of fruit and veggies that were so fresh. Everything is laid out so well, can see around a lot of the store as things are displayed low (mostly). Have a nice bulk selection, natural foods, vitamins, etc. And, their opening specials are very good! Asparagus is .88 lb. and is so tender - best I've seen around. Cantaloupes are huge and decent tasting not to be in season here - already cut one up. Lots of other great specials - all in all, think it's a nice size store, and nice addition to the northside area.

    The parking lot isn't huge, but a decent size for that store - opening dates are always crowded, but will be totally sufficient once it's open a couple weeks.

    I went today. I thought it was a decent store. Cross between trader joe and scaled down whole foods. Produce looked good, I only bought green peppers 3 for 1.00. 80/20 ground beef 1.99 lb (stuffed peppers this weekend). Extra jumbo shrimp 5.99 lb. Took advantage of grand opening prices but won't shop here because it's too far from where I live

    beths - thanks for letting us know you were able to get some good buys! It will be interesting to see how their pricing is once the grand opening specials are over.

    I went today and got lots of great deals. The only problem I had was trying to get to the items, because the store was packed.

    Stopped by after lunch to see what it was like. Small parking lot, small store like a baby whole foods without a lot of stuff that it has: no grind your own nut butters or cafe. Bulk foods & spice area with bodycare, prepared foods & produce, small frozen, refrigerated & shelf foods area. Non-sale prices looked similar to whole foods. They were giving away a free reusable bag when you purchased something. I got several of the 88 cent specials, but passed by some that looked unripe or pitiful! Not sure if they will carry local stuff like whole foods does, didn't see anything today. Didn't see any compelling reason to shop here in the future.
