This is just a rumor, but it's a rumor coming from a major publication. Word is there are merger talks between Albertsons and Sprouts.
This possibility was recently shared by none other than Forbes. The article mentions increased competition among grocery stores causing this kind of discussion.
When I tried to locate a Sprouts store, it looks like Vegas is the closest they currently are to the Magic Valley.
