Sprouts Farmers Market Opens Store in Lenexa
KANSAS CITY, Mo.
Farmers Market, one of the fastest-growing retailers in the country, and
recently named as a top five grocery store chain by Consumer Reports, has
opened a new store in Lenexa. The 27,000 square foot store is located at 8550
Maurer Rd. and opened August 20th. The new location is the second Sprouts to
open in the Kansas City area.
The big-box retail building is located in the Lenexa
Point shopping center at the northeast corner of 87th Street Parkway and Interstate
435. The original Kmart was replaced by Sears Grand, then later downsized to
Sears Outlet in 2013 in order to make room for the new Sprouts store, as well
as an additional 17,000-square-foot space that is currently available for lease
in the shopping center.
“Sprouts allows us to improve the center,” said Jon
Copaken, principal of Copaken Brooks, the developer of the site, “and we also
now have additional space to lease in a building that has been fully leased
since it was built 20 years ago.It’s
also a great opportunity for other users to locate on the adjacent development
land.”McDonald’s and Taco Bell occupy two
existing pad sites in front of the center. Copaken Brooks plan development of
three new pad sites on 5.5 acres adjacent to the west side of the building.
Sprouts offers consumers a complete healthy grocery store
experience featuring fresh produce, bulk foods, dairy, meat and seafood,
bakery, vitamins and supplements and more. Shoppers will find an abundant
