Sprouts Farmers Market Replacing Toys“R”Us on Old Spanish Trail

Recommended Posts

Thanks for reupping this thread I created in July, @ekdrm2d1.

This is not in the Medical Center (which is why when I originally posted, it,I didn't put it in this forum) This is in the Astrodome neighborhood, a neighborhood that will be exploding with redevelopment within the next 10 years (and why I continue to push for a dedicated forum for that neighborhood).

(reposting so previous content and comments are searchable on Google and through the forum's search):



The former Toys“R”Us or Toys R Us building at 1212 Old Spanish Trail will have a full-time tenant soon.

When the store closed a few years ago, seasonal holiday stores filled in the space for a couple of months.  But building permits filed last week show a grocery store has taken over the lease here. The building will be remodeled.

Sprouts Farmers Market, the health-forward grocery store that's almost a less expensive version of Whole Foods Market is going here. Other nearby grocery stores in the Astrodome neighborhood or NRG area are Fiesta (across the street), Super Target, and Kroger a block over on South Main.

1212 Old Spanish Trail is next to the 
Shops at Kirby Drive (Freebirds Burrito, Pizza Hut). It is not part of the Shops at Kirby Drive

wonderful! I've been shopping at the Yale market on Wednesdays for the double ad day the last few weeks.  Now they will be a lot more close to the area.
