Chantel Delaney, the new owner of Sprout Grocery & Market in Kimberley, is thrilled with the store’s new location in the heart of the Platzl. “It’s a whole community of business owners,” she said.

Delaney’s dad helped her design the shop, which opened in April and is filled with local and Canadian products.

“My passion is body care and supplements,” said Delaney, who grew up in Fernie, moved to Toronto where she was a broker for natural care products and now has returned home to the East Kootenay. The top sellers in the store are the local and organic sausages and meats, but with so many exciting, new products that could change.
