Sprouts is coming to North Seattle

The grocery store Sprouts Farmers Market is coming to Aurora Ave, set to replace the former Albertson’s location at 13010 Aurora Ave. N.

Albertson’s closed in 2018, and the space has been an empty shell in the shopping complex that’s also home to Pet Smart, the Asian Food Center, and LA Fitness. According to The News Tribune, Sprouts will open April 15.

Sprouts has a hiring event coming up from 8am to 5pm March 4-5 at the Embassy Suites in North Lynnwood (20610 44th Ave. W., Lynnwood).

The Aurora store is one of two new Sprouts locations in the area — the other one will open in Silverdale on March 18.

Thanks Tia for posting about Sprouts in the My Ballard Group

Is there any where to check in the environmental impact study for the store opening? I’m not sure the corner on 130th and Aurora can handle the traffic in and out of this store. I remember when they opened one near a friend’s house and it completely disrupted the ability for people to access their neighborhood.

the one in edmonds is not great. of all things, the produce was pretty sorry with visibly rotting/wilted still out on display. why anyone would shop at this location when central market is just up the road remains to be seen.

Talmerian – your comment is confusing? This location has been home to many different businesses ever since K-Mart closed. There are multiple entrances/exits on Aurora, 130th and on Stone way. It is made for high traffic business, that is what the Aurora Ave corridor is all about.

@Dudeist: Good to know there is a precedent for this to be a high traffic area. My concern is the traffic burden on 130th between Aurora & Stone currently, even with no extra business open in the location. I am concerned an increased level of traffic, with an open store as opposed to a closed one (currently there is no store there), will make things untenable. Theoretically, this should be part of the impact study for a new development. No matter El Grunion’s complaints, Sprouts is a great store with excellent products, people will visit the location.

@El Grunion: This will be closer (walking distance) than Central Market for me, so it is more likely as a place for me to frequent. I wouldn’t expect people to go further to go here, but might if ale prices are good. Its been my experience they have great deals occasionally.

Get your protest signs ready and go march, and save us all. Your hyper-sensitivities are laughable. This action is at 130th + Aurora, quite the distance from Ballard. Businesses have been there for years now. Did you recently move here? Don’t like this place? Just do NOT go there. It’s that easy. And to all the folks that attempted to stop New Season’s from operating; congratulations, they’re closed. WAHOO. Feel better today do ya?

In the World of today, every new second brings such huge changes in our lives that stuns us for a micro second and the 1st thing that hits our minds is that, “Oh No, I have Never thought about this thing“. There have come so many changes in the age of technology that today whatever is actually happening was once considered as a dream or might be few have had such dreams.

Yes, but what about parking? In Seattle free parking everywhere is a god-given right!
