Sprouts Farm­ers Mar­ket is open­ing two weeks ear­lier than planned — and the San Luis Obispo gro­cery store’s hir­ing fair will now take place in Fe­bru­ary, the com­pany an­nounced.

Sprouts will now open its new lo­ca­tion in the Madonna Plaza shop­ping cen­ter on Wed­nes­day, April 3, at 7 a.m., ac­cord­ing to a news re­lease from the com­pany. The change was an­nounced Wed­nes­day, ac­cord­ing to com­pany spokes­woman Kalia Pang.

The orig­i­nal open­ing date was April 17.

Pang told The Tri­bune in a phone in­ter­view that the open­ing date moved up due to “changes in the con­struc­tion time­line.”

The gro­cery store will move into a 30,000square-foot space at 313 Madonna Road, the for­mer lo­ca­tion of For­ever 21.

The job fair, orig­i­nally sched­uled for March, will now take place Wed­nes­day, Feb. 20, and Thurs­day, Feb. 21, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Em­bassy Suites at 333 Madonna Road, the com­pany said.

Sprouts plans to hire for about 140 full- and part­time po­si­tions at the San Luis Obispo store, in­clud­ing cour­tesy clerks, cashiers and depart­ment man­agers.

Prospec­tive ap­pli­cants are en­cour­aged to bring copies of their re­sumes with them to the hir­ing fair, Sprouts said.
