PHOENIX — Sprouts Farmers Market here celebrated a new milestone last week, opening its 50th location on June 2 in Sunnyvale, Calif.
This opening marks the eighth store this year for the natural-food retailer, which launched in 2002. Two more stores are planned for northern California before the end of the year. All of this activity follows on the heels of 11 openings last year when many businesses were struggling through the worst of the recession. And, more are coming next ye
