Sprouts Farmers Market officially confirmed what it’s said on a sign along West Fort Worth’s Camp Bowie Boulevard for a few months.

The grocer, one of the nation’s fastest growing retailers, said Tuesday the store at 6300 Waverly Way off of Camp Bowie in the Ridglea area will open in the second quarter next year. It’s one of 10 stores the company announced Tuesday, with others in Alabama, Missouri, Tennessee, Kansas, Oklahoma, Arizona, California, Georgia, and Colorado.

The stores will each employ about 100 people, Sprouts said in a release.

Sprouts stores sell produce, bulk foods, dairy, meat and seafood, bakery, vitamins and supplements, “eclectic” beer and wine, and deep assortments of natural, organic and gluten-free items.

The Fort Worth City Council in October approved incentive agreements to help get the store open.

The council approved a five-year tax abatement to the developer VCB Property, LP, which will build the 27,700-square-foot Sprouts. VCB plans to invest $2.7 million to build the store.

Separately, council members unanimously approved a five-year abatement to VCB, which proposes to build a $2.27 million, 8,800-square-foot retail center at 6324 Waverly Way.

Sprouts put up a sign on Camp Bowie afterwards, touting a summer 2015 opening for the store.
