Lucky’s Market will be unveiling a new, 120,000-square-foot central distribution center in Orlando, Florida, this fall after already successfully opening its Tampa Bay store last year. This location will primarily house produce and bulk foods to better serve Lucky's plans in servicing its stores.
“Not only will the (distribution center) enable Lucky’s to bring in more products and options, it will help decrease our cost of goods and help us pass more savings along to our customers," stated Stacey Dark, Vice President of Distribution, according to the Tampa Bay Times.
The specialty grocery store first started with two chefs in 2003 in Boulder, Colorado. Lucky’s has now reached 39 stores, 21 of which are in Florida. The two chefs plan on upping that Florida count to 50, opening stores in Brandon and Clearwater.
Kroger Co., one of the largest supermarket chains by revenue in the U.S., is supporting Lucky’s Market in carving out the Florida real estate. Deli Market News will keep you updated on the Lucky future.
