Lucky's Market Opens New Store with Bacon Cutting Ceremony


NAPLES, FL
Thursday, April 25th, 2019

Lucky’s Market is bringing the bacon home to South Florida. After announcing its Naples expansion among a slew of store openings last November, the company christened its latest location this month—with a meatier rendition of the traditional ribbon cutting. The store’s butcher instead inaugurated the location with a bacon cutting ceremony.

Joseph Cummins, Vice President of Operations, Lucky's Market“At Lucky’s Market we don’t cut ribbons to grand open our store, we cut bacon,” said Vice President of Operations Joseph Cummins, according to the Naples Daily News.

As hundreds of shoppers crowded around, the company cut through a “14 to 18-pound slab of smoked pork belly with a large knife,” officially kicking off its grand opening ceremony.

Lucky’s Market currently operates 35 stores spread across 11 states

Chris Darling, President, Lucky's Market“We’re proud to be here and we hope to challenge your concept of what grocery store shopping can truly be,” said President Chris Darling. “We don’t want to just be a place that you say, ‘I have to go get my groceries.’ This should become a place, and we are going to strive to be a place, that you just want to come to and that there’s just a feeling and something great about just being here.”

Lucky’s Market currently operates 35 stores spread across 11 states.
