Sprouts Farmers Market will open its first store in Virginia in Herndon tomorrow (Wednesday). The new market, which offers natural and organic products, will open at Herndon Centre (494 Elden Street).
A ribbon-cutting ceremony before doors open is planned for 7 a.m.
The first 200 shoppers will receive 20 percent off of their first purchase. Muffin and coffee samples will also be available to serve guests in line before doors open. All customers who make a purchase on the grand opening day will receive a free reusable bag.
Sprouts also plans to donate unsold and edible groceries to Capital Area Food Bank. Last year, the business donated 27 million pounds of food across the country.
The store is expected to bring 140 jobs to Herndon.
IHOP is slated to open on Oct. 14. No word yet on when LA Fitness and MOD Pizza are expected to open in the center.
