Sunflower Farmers Market Plans to open Second Oklahoma Location
Natural and organic foods retailer Sunflower Farmers Market plans to open its second Oklahoma store in the city of Edmond in 2012, with a facility that will bring at least 100 jobs to the area.
"Sunflower customers will find affordable, high-quality, healthy groceries for their families, and friendly, helpful service,” said Sunflower CEO Chris Sherrell. “We love being part of the Oklahoma community, and look forward to bringing a second store to the state.”
Sunflower opened its first Oklahoma store in Oklahoma City in August with overwhelming response from shoppers that has continued to build, according to the grocer. Like its predecessor, the new 31,000 square foot Edmond location will offer value-priced all-natural and organic groceries –including vegan, gluten-free and dairy-free options – with the majority of the store dedicated to a vast produce selection. In addition, Sunflower will feature all-natural meats including grass-fed beef and handmade sausages; fresh seafood; bakery items; deli items including more than 200 varieties of cheese; an olive bar; an array of bulk options; an extensive private label line, including fresh-to-go sandwiches, cut fruit, dinner entrées and more; plus natural living health and wellness items, including vitamins, supplements and body and skin care.
Shoppers will find weekly grocery savings detailed in Sunflower’s sale flyers available every Wednesday in the local newspaper and online Tuesday mornings at www.sunflowermarkets.com. According to Sunflower, Oklahoma City customers are embracing its Double Ad Wednesday concept, when sale flyers from the previous and current week overlap, allowing customers to save on twice the number of items.
Sunflower currently operates 35 stores operating in eight states: Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, Utah, Texas, California and Oklahoma.
