Durham, you just got even better! Sprouts of Durham is open to the public as of this morning! I got the grand tour last night, & left with 2 canvas bags full of groceries!
The first thing I noticed was how they put the the produce at the center, instead of in the corner like most stores. It’s very extensive and it takes up the most room in the store. Around the produce they have the butcher shop, fresh seafood, wine and beer with a nice sized local selection of Durham’s beers, and my personal favorite the bulk items (I get obsessed 😬).
One thing that stood out to me was the way they organize the food. Instead of putting the cheapest out of sight and the expensive items at eye level like most grocery stores do, items are organized according to health. Each tag is a certain color according to what kind of food it is (like gluten free), so it makes what you want easy to find.
After the tour I grabbed my favorite Talenti gelato! I’ve never seen those quart sized containers! Of course I went with that size. Because I am all about balance, I also picked up some wheat grass for my morning smoothies. 🤪 I got a few Sprouts brand snacks for the kids after school snacks. I considered a few health supplements, but I was told all the vitamins, health supplements and beauty products go on sale a few times a year at 25% off. Throw that discount on top of the 10% you save when you purchase $100 worth of groceries, and that is a steal!
Thank you for the tour Sprouts, I enjoyed myself!
