Sprouts Market Opening

The Claremont Courier reports today that the new Sprouts Market at Foothill Blvd. and Mountain Ave. will open on July 9th. The article quotes the owner of Wolfe's Market as being concerned about a possible glut of grocery stores once Sprouts and the new Trader Joe's at the corner of Indian Hill Blvd. and Foothill are open.

It's great to see new businesses come into town, but I don't think anyone wants to see established local businesses like Wolfe's, which has been in Claremont since 1917, go under because of the newcomers.
