Lucky's Market Partners With Kroger

When this news was first reported on April 1st, I ignored it, thinking it was an April Fool's prank, but now I see it's actually real. Gigantic Kroger (think King Soopers among other large grocery brands) has acquired a "significant" stake in Lucky's Market. I still like to think of Lucky's as our hometown independent, although that charming image may be becoming a bit outdated. While they initially had only the one store in north Boulder for years, and it seemed a big step when they opened a second store in Longmont in 2013, Lucky's now has 17 stores in 13 states, quite a jump. You can read all the details from the Daily Camera here.
