Sprouts logoSprouts Farmers Market announced today that it is closing three stores in Austin. One of the stores is the one Anderson, formerly Sun Harvest. According to today's article in the Statesman, the closing is the result of a recent merger that left the store chain with too many stores too close together. The three stores that are closing are on West Anderson Lane, Bee Caves Road, and Brodie Lane. They will all be closed by December 18. The 120 employees were notified of the decision this morning. Some of the employees will be offered positions at other stores. Sprouts' merger with Sun Harvest earlier this year added two stores to the four stores it already had in the Austin area. Click here for more about the store closings.
