Ormond Beach, FL - Even though it's just a few months shy, one Ormond Beach store won't be around to celebrate a year in the city.
That's after the Boulder-based chain Lucky's Market announced that they're closing not just their Ormond location, but all of their Florida locations, excluding Melbourne.
The announcement comes just a month after Kroger – the primary backer behind Lucky's – announced that they are divesting its ownership share in the store. The city of Ormond Beach said in a prepared release that the announcement is "not a reflection of the Ormond Beach store’s individual performance."
The store, which opened in May of 2019, sat in the remains of a Food Lion that closed its doors in 2013. According to the city of Ormond Beach, approximately $5 million dollars in capital investment was utilized to redevelop the store into a "high-quality grocery destination."
The location will officially close its doors for the last time on February 12th. The only store that will remain in the Sunshine State will be Lucky's Melbourne location, among six other locations around the United States.
