Boulder, CO (04/20/11)- Sunflower Farmers Market, the full-service natural and organic grocer famous for “serious food at silly prices,” has announced it will open its second store in the California market this October in Modesto. The new store will become the anchor store in Modesto’s McHenry Village Shopping Center, at McHenry and Briggsmore, and will be the first major natural and organic grocer to serve the community of Modesto.
“We are thrilled to enter the California market this year with our Roseville store in May, and are excited to be the first to bring affordable, high-quality, natural and organic groceries to Modesto,” said Sunflower CEO, Chris Sherrell. “We look forward to continuing growth of our unique grocery store concept throughout California.”
Sunflower Farmers Market currently has 33 stores throughout six Southwestern states. The store’s first California store, in Roseville, will open its doors in four weeks on May 11. Like its sister California store, the Modesto location is expected to boost the local economy by bringing at least 100 jobs to the area.
Sunflower Farmers Market presents a fresh take on grocery shopping by offering customers affordable all-natural and organic products. Sunflower’s goal is clear in the company’s motto, “Serious Food…Silly Prices.®” The new Modesto location will continue this concept by offering fresh local produce, all-natural meats and seafood, a large bulk selection, plus natural living health and wellness products, all at the lowest possible prices.
In addition, the new store will also continue Sunflower’s commitment to eco-friendly practices and initiatives. The market utilizes energy efficient light fixtures and occupancy sensors, recycled and refurbished equipment, cases and fixtures, and water-saving devices like sensor operated sinks and a hot water reclaim tank.
