Natural and organic grocer Sunflower Farmers Market plans to open its ninth Colorado location May 27 in Colorado Springs -- its first in the city and 24th overall.
“To us, our customers in Colorado are like an extended part of the Sunflower family. I look forward to growing our Sunflower family in Colorado and making our grocery store concept accessible to residents across the entire state,” said founder and CEO Mike Gilliland. “Today, more than ever, we want to offer the best-quality foods at the lowest possible prices. We keep our prices down by offering fresh produce, meats and other goods from local Colorado growers and suppliers at down-home prices.”
The Boulder, Colo.-based chain made its debut in Colorado in late 2003 in Denver, and Gilliland has called Colorado home for over 30 years. He even graduated from the University of Colorado.
The first 200 customers on opening day will receive a free reusable shopping bag filled with $50 worth of Sunflower groceries with any in-store purchase.
Sunflower operates 24 full service grocery stores throughout Colorado, Arizona, New Mexico, Nevada, and Utah, and including three sister stores operating under the Newflower Farmers Market banner in Plano, Austin and Dallas, Texas.
