Sunflower to Open Third Tucson, Ariz. Store
"Our current Tucson locations have been extremely successful and well received by an abundance of health-conscious consumers," said Sunflower c.e.o. and founder Mike Gilliland, who will be greeting and thanking customers as well as lending a hand to bag groceries during the grand opening. "We are eager to be the source for those residents who want to save money by providing the freshest and healthiest foods for those who want to cook at home at the lowest possible prices. In today's hard economic times, Sunflower is the most cost-effective choice out there."

The first 200 customers on opening day will receive a free reusable shopping bag filled with more than $50 of groceries.
