Sprouts Farmers Market grocery store will bring about 140 new jobs when it arrives in the Herndon Centre later this year as part of a broader expansion.
The grocer announced today (Jan. 8) that it will open approximately 30 stores this year. Nine of those stores are set to open in the second quarter of 2019, including the one at 494 Elden Street.
With each new store, the grocer expects to bring 140 new jobs to each location, according to the press release.
Reston Now previously reported in September that the natural and organic grocer would join part of the space vacated by Kmart.
Construction is currently underway as Florida-based real estate investment firm Sterling Organization divides the former big box store into several businesses, including LA Fitness, MOD Pizza and IHOP.
Started 16 years ago, Sprouts Farmers Market currently operates more than 300 stores in 19 states.
Sprouts Farmers Market said that opening dates for each store will be shared separately.
