Sprouts to open at Prescott Valley Crossroads

Sprouts Farmers Market is scheduled to open at the Prescott Valley Crossroads power center on June 4. The 27,994 SF Phoenix-based specialty follows the October 2013 opening of Dick’s Sporting Goods’ 35KSF store. Other large retailers soon to join the successful center are a 23KSF TJ Maxx and a 10KSF ULTA Beauty store. Both stores plan to open in late summer or early fall. The three retailers will join Sam’s Club, which opened in 2010. Negotiations are continuing with other regional and national retailers.

Phoenix Commercial Advisors’ Greg Laing, Teale Bloom, and Cameron Warren represent Kitchell Development Company, the project developer, in leasing the Prescott Valley Crossroads. Dan Gardiner of Phoenix Commercial Advisors represented TJ Maxx and Sprouts Farmers Market in negotiations.

Located 80 miles north of the Phoenix metropolitan area, the center sits on a premium location in Prescott Valley, along Highway 69.  The 800KSF power center offers retail, services, big box, and dining opportunities and will serve the greater Prescott and Prescott Valley areas.  Jeff Allen, President of Kitchell says the center “is one of the last premier locations in the area for large tenants.”

Kitchell developed both the north and the south sides of the highway. The shopping center occupies all four corners of the intersection which sits 1,000 feet above the town on Glassford Hill, providing great visibility for retailers locating there. The north side of the highway offers 444KSF of retail anchored by Home Depot, Dollar Tree, and Hobby Lobby.

Home building permits in Prescott Valley tell the story of the area’s rapid growth. According to the Town of Prescott Valley new home permits increased from only 21 permits being issued in 2010 to 259 new build permits issued as of November 2013.  Housing growth is one of the factors retailers consider when looking at trade areas in which they might add new stores.

According to Bloom, “Area housing growth has helped drive retailer interest. Demand from retailers and restaurants for the balance of the shopping center has also increased with every reported new retailer committment in the center. There will be other announcements of great retailers to come.”

According to Gardiner, “The tenant mix in Prescott Valley Crossroads has become formidable. The strong lineup of retailers in complimentary categories will make this a true regional draw for the surrounding residents, and one of the top shopping centers in northern Arizona.”

Got Milk? Babies and Breastfeeding

Becoming a mother is one of the most wonderful and challenging times in a woman’s life. It’s a time for celebrations but also a time for preparation, planning and important decision making. One of those decisions being – do I breastfeed or use formula milk?

Many new mothers struggle with the decision to breastfeed or bottle feed their new baby. While many may opt out of breastfeeding, health educators are encouraging mother’s to reconsider.

Why the breast is best

Nursing is a wonderful experience for both mother and baby. It provides ideal nourishment and a special bonding experience that many nursing mothers desire.

Aside from that, breast milk also provides infection-fighting prebiotics (antibodies) that aren’t found in formula. These antibodies are passed from the nursing mother to her baby and can help by increasing the barriers to infection and decreasing the growth of bad bacteria that can create viruses and other infections like:

  • Gas, diarrhea and other digestive health issues
  • Respiratory infections
  • Ear infections
  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Diabetes
  • Childhood obesity
  • Leukemia
  • Eczema and other skin issues
  • Immune system

But that’s not all—breast milk is the “perfect food” for the digestive system.

Why?

Breast milk delivers the perfect amount of nutrition that promotes easy digestion. Unlike baby formula, which is full of insulin and high in sugar, breast milk contains lactose, protein, fat and prebiotics that all are easily digested by a newborns immature system. Together they work to promote the growth of “friendly bacteria” inside the newborns stomach and fight off any harmful bacteria that may cause chronic illnesses.

Can mother’s benefit from breastfeeding too?

Weight gain, pregnancy hormones and constant fatigue, it’s no secret that pregnancy can take a toll on a woman’s body. But good news moms—you too can benefit from breastfeeding in a number of ways.

Convenience

Many mothers today play multiple rolls like parent and corporate career woman, leaving very little time to make additional trips to the store for formula and bottles. Breastfeeding is convenient for both mother and child. There’s no waiting when your baby is hungry or need to mix formula and clean bottles and nipples.

Less Expense

Depending on the brand of formula, it is estimated breast feeding can help save thousands. And because of the immunities and prebiotics (antibodies) passed through a mothers’ breast milk, breastfed infants are often less sick than those who use formula, ultimately saving money that would be spent on over-the-counter medicine and doctor office visits.

Baby Bonding

Every mother looks forward to the time they get to bond with their newborn. Breastfeeding stimulates the release of the hormone oxytocin in the mother’s body. That combined with milk ejection and skin-to-skin contact promotes the development of maternal behavior and also bonding between mother and her child.

Weight Loss

Breastfeeding may help a mother get back to her pre-pregnancy weight as well. With proper diet and exercise, breast feeding can help burn some additional calories and shrink the uterus, so nursing moms may be able to return to their pre-pregnancy shape and weight quicker. Not to mention, help a mothers overall confidence.

Fighting the Flu – Colon to the Rescue

It’s no secret that flu season has come early this year and by the looks of it, it’s not ending anytime soon. With friends, family and co-workers all coming down with the germy illness, there is no better time to focus on ways to boost your immune system.

While many will miss school and work- you don’t have to. There are aids that can help prevent a person from becoming a victim of the flu and others illnesses. Here are a few things to know about nudging those flu-causing germs and enhancing the immune system.

Food for Thought

Most of us don’t think twice before we eat that cupcake or cheeseburger but we should be. The foods we eat have a direct impact on how our body functions. While no one food can ward off illnesses like the flu, an overall healthy diet might. Eating a well-balanced diet rich in soluble prebiotic fibers will prodigiously grow good bacteria that in turn stimulates the powerful immune cells in the colon wall the strengthen. Combine with plenty of fruits and vegetables to help support a healthy immune system.

Remember to Rest

Long work days and a hectic personal life can often keep a person going and going. But unlike the Energizer Bunny®, the human body needs its rest. Don’t tax your body when trying to fight the flu or other illnesses. Get some shut-eye as a way to rejuvenate the immune system and keep a healthy body.

A few more tips:

  • Getting the flu shot is the number one way to help prevent against the virus not just in older adults and children but in teens and middle aged adults. By producing antibodies, your body will protect itself from the virus.
  • Avoid big crowds and make sure to wash your hands regularly.
  • Eat plenty of food rich in prebiotic and probiotic naturally occurring substances like garlic, soy, oats, fermented yogurt and milk or take a dietary supplement like Prebiotin.  Doing so helps support one of the biggest immune organs, the digestive tract and stimulate the immune cells to fight against illnesses.

Nothing can sideline your everyday life like a bad cold or the flu. Protect the immune system starting from the inside out. Taking care of your body properly through proper diet, exercise and rest can prevent illnesses, help enhance the immune system and promote general health and wellness.
