Openings and Closings

Sprouts are sprouting up across Colorado

Today Sprouts Farmers Market will open its eighth Colorado store, at 4729 West 29th Street in Greeley -- just two weeks after a Sprouts sprouted up in Centennial, at 20811 East Smoky Hill Road. The six other locations are in Aurora, Boulder, Castle Rock, Fort Collins, Parker and Westminster, and a ninth will open later this year in Lone Tree.

The Arizona-based Sprouts got its start when the Boney family opened their first produce stand back in 1943. Today the company specializes in "healthy living for less," and features seafood delivered six days a week, more than 200 bulk bins, and over over 1,500 gluten-free products. Find out more at
