Don't know if this has been posted before. I was there and they have signs that they are renamed themselves Sprouts as they are being merged with that outfit.

Guy there said they are going to redo the stores. That might be nice if they upgrade the stores and things they carry. The Callaghan store is not that nice.

Wouldn't be surprising. They had stores in San Diego that were called Boney's and they changed the name to Henry's, but they all sell the same food and Sun Harvest even sold under the Henry's brand name. The Henry's/Boney's website also has the name Sprouts.

Sounds good to me. Those stores definitely need a face lift to help compete.

That's what they posted on their web page:

Sun Harvest, Henry's and Sprouts have merged, and are coming together under the name Sprouts Farmers Market!

Now if they can just put one in a better location for me.. The Boney's/Henry's weren't always the best smelling or cleanest places, but they had good prices and some interesting food. I used to shop there all the time in San Diego because they would have crazy sales on whatever was in season. My favorite was the three cantaloupes for $1.

That's a little disappointing to be honest. The Sprouts stores I've been to in CA (Inland Empire region) were really lousy. Sun Harvest is much better. But then, the Henry's in Inland Empire also kinda sucks, so maybe it's just that area and they'll do a better job here.

Sun Harvest is a handful of stores that are part of a much larger company. The company doesn't want to maintain multiple identities for stores that are doing the same thing.
