Sprouts merges with Sunflower creating an even bigger Sprout: New store marketing next
Steve’s breakdown: The new company has 144 stores which you can see at the links below. The new entity will be branded under the Sprouts name. The rebranding of the Sunflower stores starts in July so get in there now before they do too much damage!
Under a deal announced in March, Phoenix-based Sprouts said it would take over Sunflower Farmers Market, headquartered in Boulder, Colo., forming a combined company with 144 stores.
The recently opened Sprouts store in Citrus Heights is the third Sacramento-area store for the chain, joining locations in Elk Grove and Roseville.
Sunflower operates a store in Roseville and recently opened another in Sacramento’s Land Park neighborhood.
All Sunflower stores will be rebranded under the Sprouts banner. Officials said conversions will begin in July and continue in phases through the end of the year.
