Sprouts Farmers Market on Thursday announced hiring events for new stores in Henderson, Nevada, and Visalia, California.

The fast-growing specialty grocer said it is looking for 105 employees for its Henderson store, about 16 miles southeast of Las Vegas. That store is slated to open on Nov. 10, Sprouts said.

The grocer said it is seeking department managers, assistant department managers, clerks, cashiers, courtesy clerks, backup receiver, administrative coordinator and scan coordinator.

The Visalia store, scheduled to open on Nov. 3, is hiring about 95 full- and part-time workers for the store, including all of the positions listed above.

“Sprouts’ healthy approach to grocery shopping means potential team members should share a passion for the fresh, natural and organic products offered throughout the store,” Sprouts said in a statement.

Earlier this month, the Phoenix-based grocer opened its 400th store, this one in Haddon Township, New Jersey. Sprouts has recently opened stores in Rialto, California; San Tan Valley, Arizona; Boca Raton, Florida; Kenneth City, Florida; West Melbourne, Florida; and Colorado Springs, Colorado.

The grocer has previously said it is on track to open 30 new stores this year.

During the second quarter, Sprouts relocated its Southern California distribution center to a larger facility and expanded its distribution center in Texas.

“These distribution centers allow us to bring fresher products to our customer base while providing capacity for growth in those markets for years to come,” CEO Jack Sinclair said in August, according to a transcript from financial-services site AlphaSense.

Sprouts said it currently has nearly 100 approved new stores and more than 60 executed leases, helping it get closer to its goal of 10% annual unit growth starting next year.
