Sprouts opening Eagle Rock store in May

Storefront ReportEAGLE ROCK — The Sprouts Farmers Market chain said it plans to open its new 25,000-square-foot Eagle Rock Boulevard store on May 11.

Sprouts will replace a former Super A Foods market in a shopping center at the corner of  Eagle Rock Boulevard and Yosemite Drive.  Last year’s closure of Super A Foods and Fresh & Easy left the western portion of Eagle Rock as well as Glassell Park without two major grocery stores.

The Arizona-based Sprouts chain has grown to more than 200 stores nationwide as it positions itself as an affordable alternative to Whole Foods and other markets focused on natural and organic foods. In addition to groceries, the Eagle Rock market will operate a deli selling meals-to-go, said a company spokesman.

“Eagle Rock has become a highly desired location for people to live, and we’ve seen a strong demand for fresh, natural and organic foods at great prices from the neighborhood,” said spokesman Diego Romero.

Romero said the company plans a grand opening celebration with food samples, discounts and other giveaways.

  1. Hey there is still a Super A in Glassell Park on Division St and Cazador St. Sad to hear the other one closed but readers should know there is still one

  2. Fantastic news!

  3. sprouts is not great. expensive and fake healthy. if you want bulk gummi worms, go to sprouts

  4. I have a friend who lives near this and so far she is mostly happy. The Super A used to let people dump trash and bulky items behind their store. I could never figure out how they passed health inspections with so much accumulated trash as it had to attract rats. Anyway, Super A is gone thank goodness and so far Sprouts seems better at keeping things clean in that they don’t seem to be allowing their loading dock area to serve as a public dump but my friend says they still aren’t much better about not letting graffiti build up.
