Lucky’s Market Coming to Gainesville

Lucky’s Market, an organic grocery store, plans to move into the old Pic ‘N Save location on the corner of NW 13th Street and 23rd Avenue. The Colorado based grocery store has leased the property and plans to move in by the end of the year. The property will go through $1.1 million of renovations. Renovations will include demolition, façade upgrades, and interior remodeling.  The organic grocery store is not ready to comment on the new store yet. 

The owners, Chef Trish and Bo Sharon, opened the first Lucky’s in Boulder, CO in 2003. They have now expanded to eight stores in 5 states with 5 more stores planning to open soon. Lucky’s website says the store offers local, organic, sustainable and traditionally crafted food. The organic grocery store joins Trader Joes, The Fresh Market, and soon to come Earth Fare in the Gainesville area. 

The Pic ‘N Save store closed in 1996 and the anchor spot has been empty since then. Lucky’s move to this spot is a visible symbol of progressive changes coming to the old Gainesville Mall area. Verde Plaza also includes Easter Market Asian grocery, Dollar Tree, Subway, O2B Kids, Great Clips, H&R Block, Planet Fitness, and Taco Bell outparcel.
