Sprouts to open June 29


The 28,000 square-foot grocery store Sprouts Farmers Market on Teasley Lane now has a scheduled opening: Wednesday, June 29 at 7 a.m.

With the opening set, the store is ready to start hiring for roughly 100 positions, including department managers and assistant department managers, clerks and cashiers. Applications are now being accepted here.

Construction on the project started last year along a growing portion of Teasley, between Kroger and Guyer High School.

This is the second Sprouts in Denton County, with a location already in Flower Mound.

The store specializes in natural and organic foods, with a focus on fresh produce. They also have bulk sections for snacks, grains and nuts, on-site butchers and natural foods and supplements.


Aldi to open first Denton store May 30

On May 30, the German discount grocer ALDI plans to open its first Denton grocery store at 1105 Loop 288 S.

To celebrate the opening of the Denton store, ALDI will host a ribbon-cutting ceremony at 9:45 a.m. May 29.

The event is open to the public. Guests may sample ALDI exclusive brands and tour the new store, a press release said.  Additionally, they may participate in an on-site sweepstakes for a chance to win store gift certificates, a news statement said.

Store hours will be 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Sunday.

ALDI has more than 1,200 U.S. stores located in 32 states. Over the last several years, ALDI has added approximately 50-80 new stores each year.

In 2009, Aldi Inc. opened a 500,000-square-foot distribution center at 2500 Westcourt Road in Denton at an estimated cost of $50 million.
