The store will celebrate its grand opening with a "bacon-cutting" ceremony.
Ormond Beach residents will gain a new grocery store, as Lucky's Market will officially open on the beachside on Wednesday, May 8.
The store, located at the site of the former Food Lion building at 101 E. Granada Blvd., will offer a wider selection of organic, local, specialty and gluten-free items, according to a press release. Rather than having a traditional ribbon-cutting ceremony, Lucky's will celebrate its grand opening with a "bacon-cutting" ceremony at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 8.
Lucky's will also present an impact grant to local nonprofit Provision Packs, which provides meals and snacks for students in need throughout the community. On Saturday, May 11, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., the store will also host Taste of Lucky's, an event with live music, vendors, food samples and gift basket giveaways.
The 27,000 square-foot Ormond Beach store will be lead by Melissa Bradford, the press release states. Bradford has over seven years of experience in the grocery industry, and has lived in Florida for over 20 years. The store will employ about 150 people.
Lucky's will also feature ready-to-eat meals, sushi, and a new Ramen bar. Pressed juices and smoothies will also be available for purchase, and the store will house an apothecary department.
