Note: Story updated with new photos.
An update comes in from reader Nicole Sherman, who saw this bare facade-to-be and fruity Sprouts Farmers Market sign at the end of last week and snapped these photos: Filling in for the former Sports Authority in the Kirkwood Shopping Center at 11940 Westheimer, this will be the 4th Sprouts in Houston and the farthest in, only 2 miles beyond the Beltway. In October, the green grocer revealed the first 3 locations it would open in Houston this year:
On March 27, a 25,300-sq.-ft. store opened in Katy at 23105 Cinco Ranch Blvd. Opening very soon is a 28,000-sq.-ft. store — whose Facebook page advertises a 2-hour preview party tomorrow, followed by a grand opening on Wednesday — at 22506 Tomball Pkwy. And the 3rd announced location is the not-yet-open 29,000-sq.-ft. store in Copperfield Village at 7055 Hwy. 6 near Spencer Rd.
The aerial views below show the Kirkwood Shopping Center, shared by Spec’s and Half-Price Books. Catty-corner from this 4th Sprouts is an H-E-B at 11815 Westheimer:
