Sprouts hiring 90 people for new Denver store

Sprouts is finishing construction on a new 23,300-square-foot store in northeast Denver.

DENVER — Sprouts Farmers Market announced it will hire 90 employees for its newest store in northeast Denver.

Sprouts said it will soon finish construction on the new 23,300-square-foot store at 5670 North Tower Road near Denver International Airport (DIA).

The store, which is expected to open Wednesday, Dec. 8, will require 90 full-time and part-time workers. Jobs available include cashiers, clerks, receivers, managers, assistant managers and more.

Sprouts will host a virtual hiring event for the store on Wednesday, Oct. 27 and Thursday, Oct. 28. Those interested in positions should visit sprouts.com/careers to view openings and apply.

In March, Sprouts Farmers Market opened a new distribution center in Aurora, its sixth distribution facility nationwide.

Sprouts said the 135,000 square-foot facility is its first in Colorado and includes 55°F and 34°F storage and fruit ripening rooms.

The Aurora center will service 45 of the chain’s more than 360 stores, including all Sprouts locations in Colorado, five stores in Utah, and eight in New Mexico. Spouts currently operates 32 stores in Colorado.

"As we grow our footprint, we will strategically place new stores and distribution centers closer together to maximize our owned fresh product network," said Chief Fresh Merchandising Officer Scott Neal. "This will better serve our customers who are looking to Sprouts for the best quality and value in fresh and organic produce."

Sprouts said it has partnered with Penske Logistics as its third-party logistics provider for the distribution center and dedicated transportation fleet which created 70 new full-time jobs in the market.

"The location of our Aurora facility, combined with features such as ripening rooms for bananas and avocados, two of our top-selling produce items, will immediately provide our stores with an expanded selection of affordable organics," said Neal.
