Colorado-Based Natural Grocer Lucky's Market To Open In Coral Springs, Plantation
Between the recent opening of Tunie's and the upcoming Trader Joe's store in Davie, it looks like Broward can never have enough specialty grocers. So it's lucky, then, that Lucky's Market plans to open two new locations in the Greater Fort Lauderdale area.
Lucky's, a natural grocery store with a wide selection of organic, gluten-free and traditionally crafted food products, announced Thursday that it's coming to Coral Springs later this year. Another store is planned for Plantation in 2016. Currently, the only Lucky's Florida location is in Gainesville.
The Lucky's Market chain was started by a husband-and-wife team 12 years ago in Colorado. As two chefs, the couple wanted a grocery store for food lovers like themselves, so they opened their first store in 2003 to sell specialty foods at affordable prices.
"We really work to meet people on their personal food journey by simply making natural foods more accessible, and doing so in a comfortable and welcoming store environment," said Krista Torvik, a representative of Lucky's Market.
Lucky's sells "never ever" meats, which have never been treated with antibiotics or artificial growth hormones. In addition, customers will be able to find local produce, fresh seafood and baked goods (like maple bacon doughnuts!), alongside bacon that's been cured and smoked in-house and homemade sausage.
The market also offers ready-to-eat meats, salads and sides that are made in-store daily, plus fresh juices and smoothies at its juice bar.
For shoppers' convenience, Lucky's Market still sells consumer favorites like Coca-Cola and Campbell's soup, and the store has a bulk items section.
When Lucky's opens, the store will hold free wellness activities as well as "walkabout" tours of the market that focus on specific food categories, like gluten-free items.
Torvik said to expect a grand opening week celebration when the Coral Springs store opens in late 2015. Details will be announced closer to the opening date.
The Coral Springs location will be at 9200 Wiles Road in the Royal Eagle Plaza.
