Sprouting up in neighborhoods across eight different states and counting, a relatively young chain of grocery stores trades on a decidedly old-time look and feel. “When you walk into a Sprouts Farmers Market, it’s supposed to feel a little bit different than your everyday grocery store,” says communications manager Lauren Rosenblum. With fresh produce and wholesome grains sold from wooden crates and barrels, and spacious aisles all brightly lit to evoke the feel of a sunny afternoon outdoors, the store makes quite the impression on first-time shoppers. There are a lot of those lately, as the chain expands rapidly and grand openings generate excitement in new markets.

Blistering winds and freezing temperatures do more than throw nature off its balance—they also dry out lips. Luckily, there are many natural products that promise to restore your shoppers’ pouts into prime, kissable condition.

Most pet owners say they are willing to do anything to give their pets long, healthy, happy lives, just like they would for their human family members. So, why feed, reward or supplement them with anything but the best? Pets are part of the family and have their own set of dietary and hygienic needs that can be amply addressed through natural products. Animal-loving, natural lifestyle customers will surely embrace these products to support many more years with their furry friends.
For some, growing old gracefully means proudly sporting strands of gray and championing laugh lines as signs of a life well lived. Others, however, take a “turn back the clock” approach. For this group, products that support healthy skin and hair are must-haves in their lives. While they won’t stop the hands of time, natural age-support products can help keep an age-conscious customer looking and feeling great.
Whether your customers come in with Shirley Temple curls, a slicked-back pompadour or a multicolored mohawk, how their hair looks and feels says a lot about who they are.
