Broward County is getting a third Lucky's Market location.
With two markets already in Coral Springs and Plantation, the natural grocer known for letting customers sip wine or beer while they shop has announced a new store will be coming to Oakland Park—good news for locals living and working on the east side of town.
The store will be located at 1033 E. Oakland Park Blvd. and is slated to open this summer.
"We are excited about the response we’ve seen in our two Broward County stores to date, and hope to bring what we do to more nearby communities," said Ben Friedland, vice president of marketing for Lucky's Market.
The Lucky's Market chain was started by a husband-and-wife chef team in Colorado who wanted to open a grocery store designed for food lovers like themselves. Between selling quality items like in-house smoked bacon and offering too-good-to-believe deals like 19-cent mangoes or 3-for-$1 Haas avocados, Lucky's is like a Whole Foods Market at Trader Joe's prices.
The natural foods store provides an extensive selection of local, organic, vegan and gluten-free items and lets shoppers stroll through the grocery aisles with a $2 pint or $3 wine glass in hand.
Shoppers at Lucky's will also find fresh baked goods, a salad bar, pizza counter, grab-and-go sushi and other ready-to-eat meals, plus bulk foods, an apothecary department for natural home remedies, and a sit-down café.
The chain plans to open at least six new stores across Florida through 2018, including additional locations in Sarasota, Panama City, Port St. Lucie, Bonita Springs and St. Petersburg.
"In general, we’ve received a positive response to the previous eight Florida stores we’ve opened, and that has us excited to bring our concept to more Florida communities," Friedland said.
