I'd start by greasing the caliper slide bolt pins on the other side and see if it still does it. If the pads are all new and the rotors are worn evenly it shouldn't be too much of an issue. You might be able to save a few bucks by getting the rotors resurfaced as opposed to buying new ones.

Purely anecdotal here...I recently helped a co-worker put new brakes on his car, all 4 corners. He had also mentioned to me that the parking brake sticks sometimes. When doing the rear ones we discovered that the little rubber dust boot had torn and one of the caliper slide pins was siezed in place. We got it moving and cleaned the rust out and the parking brake doesn't appear to stick anymore.
