The widely anticipated Sprouts Farmers Market in Silverdale at 11066 Pacific Crest Place Northwest will open on Wednesday, April 8 at 7:00 a.m. to provide immediate fresh and healthy grocery options to the community.
“We’re in this together, Silverdale,” said Sprouts Chief Operations Officer Dan Sanders. “We’re eager to provide you and your families access to the healthy grocery essentials you need during these unprecedented times as quickly as we can.”
The Silverdale location will be the third Sprouts in the state and will operate under the grocer’s current adjusted hours of 7:00 a.m. – 8:00 p.m. daily. The store anticipates receiving daily deliveries to stay well-stocked but certain items might not be available on opening day in an effort to open as soon as possible.
Sprouts is closely following CDC and local health authority guidelines related to COVID-19, while regularly providing store team members with the latest safety guidelines. In addition to regular food safety and cleaning procedures, Sprouts has invested additional labor hours into stores to allow for more frequent cleaning, paying close attention to high-touch areas such as service counters, restrooms, carts and checkout lanes. Stores are also implementing steps to promote social distancing at registers, where plexiglass barriers are being installed to add protection for team members and customers.
As part of Sprouts’ commitment to “zero waste,” the new store will donate unsold and edible groceries to Food Lifeline through the grocer’s Food Rescue program. In 2019, Sprouts stores and distribution centers donated 27 million pounds of product, equivalent to 23 million meals. Food that is not fit for donation is provided to local cattle farms and composting facilities. Sprouts’ evolving “zero waste” initiatives help minimize food waste while reducing the impact of hunger and the company’s environmental footprint.
