Great news, Philly! Sprouts (1000 South Broad Street) is now officially open! In case you missed my previous posts, I’ve shared the basics of what Sprouts is and the best ways to save money there. And since I’m all about that grocery store life, I’ve been loving learning about the new store.
I stopped by Philly’s new location Tuesday night to take a little tour while their Friends & Family soft opening was in full force. Despite the store being packed on their first night on the job, all of the employees were so helpful and sweet.
The building is huge, built in an old train shed. The natural light shining through from the ceiling complements the store throughout the day – they’re open from 7am-10pm daily.
Sprouts does not claim to be a specialty store. Since they’re very promotional and a ton of the store is on sale at any time, they feel they are “competing” more against conventional grocery stores than speciality ones.
On to the tour
The produce is b-o-u-n-t-i-f-u-l. They told us produce made up 23% of their sales, which sounds like a lot, but the prices were still very reasonable. I really did like the whole “farmers market” vibe of the produce section – and I’m excited to take my time and really stock up on things other than avocados and lemons.
Some of my favorite things when walking through the tour: the beauty section (I shared more clips of this section on my instastory), kombucha on tap (omg) or in 7 zillion more bottles if you prefer it that way, and the Fresh Finds section, which was stocked with all the brands you keep hearing about, like Hail Merry bites & tarts, Perfect Bars, Farmhouse Culture Gut Shots, and fermented everything.
Any of these sections would be the perfect place to take Sprouts up on their “try before you buy” policy – they’re literally open anything (even vitamins!) to let you sample right on the spot.
I really can’t wait to explore the rest of the store when I have more time, especially the infamous bulk section, all the drinks, and Sprouts Brand products. I just actually love #products in general and love finding new gems at the grocery store.
I know I’m definitely going to be staying up on the weekly ad – you can clip coupons and see what’s on sale each week.
I’m really excited that Sprouts is giving me a $50 gift card to their new store just for you! Here’s how to enter:
