Save Mart confirmed plans to add a new Lucky store in the Bayview area of San Francisco.
It looks like San Francisco is getting a new grocery store run by The Save Mart Cos. According to local media reports, a Lucky store is slated to open in a former Walgreens space at Bayview Plaza in the Bayview-Hunters Point neighborhood.
A company representative told the San Francisco Standard that the project is in the works. “Lucky has recently signed a lease for a vibrant new grocery store in Bayview Plaza. We are in the early stages of preparing for permitting and developing a plan for a Lucky store that will provide the community with convenient access to fresh, quality groceries,” said Bobby McDowell, VP of store operations for Lucky California.
The area has been called a food desert, as some food grocery stores shuttered in recent years. Currently, local food retailers include a Grocery Outlet store and Super Save Supermarket location.
Save Mart's plans for the nearly 10,000-square-foot space include several interior updates. No opening date has been announced.
