Hate to see it so soon; but I reckon it'll work out. Selfishly, I'm glad it doesn't affect the stores I frequent(although I did stop in the Anderson Lane store whenever I visited Play It Again Sports). Great Hills and Round Rock both seem to be bustling.(Doesn't mean they're selling anything or making money or paying the rent, but at least they seem busy )

Hmmm. The Brodie Lane spot would perfect for a Trader Joes! (Sorry, I couldn't resist).

Sad but I guess there really was some poor planning involved with stores being so close to one another. We fell in love with Sprouts in CO. I'd be very sad if the one I frequent closed too but it's always packed.

Oh, NO you don't! I have the location picked out up here at Avery Ranch for the first TJ's Austin store.

I couldn't agree more!!!

I was underwhelmed with Sprouts when we moved here. For a more "natural" grocery store, they seem to be significantly lacking organic produce. The conventional produce they carried was priced good, but the organic produce selection at HEB at Slaughter and Escarpment is better than Sprouts.

I figured it was a matter of time for the one in Rollingwood - there's never anyone there when we go. Since we lost Sunflower (formerly Newflower) in Bee Cave, the Rollingwood Sprouts was the next closest one. Is the one they are closing on Brodie the one in Sunset Valley? I guess that means the old Sun Harvest location will stay open - which is where we were shopping before either Sprouts or Newflower came along! We are supposed to be getting a Whole Paycheck in Bee Cave next year. I'd rather have the Trader Joes!

I actually thought that Sprouts was expensive. Not quite getting a Whole Foods experience, but certainly paying the price. The first Trader Joes in Texas will be in Fort Worth and Houston, opening next spring.

Yeah it was weird, their organic section was tiny. I would have expected them to sell only organic produce.

I knew it was a matter of time for the Rollingwood/Westlake store. Never seemed to be more than 10 customers there, ever. But dang, I loved that store. Much better produce at a much lower cost than HEB. Cleaner store. Only reason I didn't buy everything there is because you can't buy everything there...

I shop a lot at the one on Brodie, so I'm sorry to see it go. However I'm not surprised as it's never that crowded inside. I will miss it, but guess I can go to the one on S. Lamar instead. I agree - it's a perfect size for a TJ's. Oh well, one can always dream I guess.
