Sunflower Market: RIP

January 26, 2008

I was expecting Sunflower Market to close after the last couple of times I was in there. The stores were quiet and there was not many people shopping. Business First has confirmed my suspicions today. All Sunflower Market stores will close in February.

I thought the concept had promise. The produce was a step above the usual grocery store fair and they were convenient. Unfortunately, there was not much more than that compelled me to go there more than a couple times a month. The concept may arise again. Maybe something more like Tesco’s Fresh & Easy Neighborhood Market or the Fresh Market concept on Henderson Road. It is hard competing with giants like Whole Foods. Sunflower Market just could not do it.
