Sprouts Farmers Market is marketed as a "health grocery store inspired by farmers" that sells fresh organic and natural groceries. The first Sprouts location opened in Arizona in 2002. Since then, the budding chain has opened more than 280 locations in 15 states, throughout the US, including California.

Unfortunately, the beloved grocery chain recently announced that it would be closing at least two of its California stores starting in early June.

Here are the store locations that will be closing soon:

  • Fremont: located in the Freemont Shopping Center at 3900 Mowry Avenue, and
  • Mountain View: located at 630 San Antonio Road in the World Savings Plaza.

Both the Freemont and Mountain View Sprouts Farmers Market stores will remain open from 7 am to 10 pm each day until they close for good on June 3, 2022.

The employees who currently work at these locations will be given an opportunity to "stay employed with the company" by moving to a different location.

While the store headquarters has not given specific reasons why it decided to close these particular stores, some news outlets have speculated that it has something to do with lease negotiations failing apart between the landowner and the store.

According to the property owner, a new grocery store is expected to take over the Fremont Sprouts location "very soon." However, the name of the new tenant has not been released yet.

What store would you like to see move into the Fremont location?
