New Grocery Stores Headed to Augusta


groceries3Just a little over a week after the closure of Whole Foods Market and days after the 15th Street Kroger cleared its shelves, two grocery chains have announced plans to plant roots in Augusta.

Sprouts Farmers Market, an Arizona-based healthy living supermarket will be the anchor tenant in the proposed Crane Creek shopping center at the corner of Interstate 20 and Walton Way Extension, just across the interstate from the Augusta Exchange shopping center. That area has been without a full-service grocery store since the closing of Winn-Dixie in 2005.

The other new supermarket, which is slated to occupy 3034 Peach Orchard Road, is a brand that’s more familiar to the Augusta area: Aldi.

The German-based discount grocer has filed plans with Richmond County to build on the site formerly occupied by the Ryan’s buffet restaurant, which closed last year.
