Lucky’s to open 3rd South Florida store this week in Oakland Park
Colorado-based Lucky's also has opened stores in Coral Springs and Plantation
Boulder, Colorado-based Lucky’s Market will open its third South Florida grocery store on Wednesday in Oakland Park.
Lucky’s distinguishes itself from other grocers by providing shopping carts equipped with cup holders and encouraging customers to sip beer or wine while buying their groceries.
The 30,000-square-foot Lucky’s store at 1033 East Oakland Park Boulevard will be the company’s 10th location in Florida, including stores in Coral Springs and Plantation.
The Lucky’s Market in Oakland Park will feature a pizzeria, ramen and sushi bars, a large selection of prepared foods, and an apothecary with such items as teas, salves, soaps, candles and aromatherapy oils.
The Oakland Park location will join other businesses in the city’s culinary arts district north of Oakland Park Boulevard on Dixie Highway, including a Funky Buddha Brewery.
Lucky’s is one of many grocery store chains that have entered the South Florida market in recent years and challenged Publix Super Markets, the leading grocer in the tri-county area. [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
