Lucky’s Market in Fort Collins Set to Open in March [PICTURES]
Fort Collins newest grocery store is set to open in a couple months. Lucky's Market is at 425 South College in the northwest corner of College and Mulberry in the location that was once Sports Authority. According to the construction crew refurbishing the property, the store is set to open in early March.
When the building was originally built, it was a Safeway store which accounts for curvature of the roof. That feature is being kept to preserve it's architectural history.
Lucky’s Market was started by two chefs from Boulder, in 2003. They have stores in 10 different states, including Colorado. According to the website, Longmont, Boulder and Wheatridge all have Lucky's Markets.
My wife and I were allowed inside the store to snap a few photos.

Lucky's Market Anthem
At Lucky’s, we love good food. Not just natural and organic food, but the food that’s so much a part of our fondest memories. The good stuff.
It’s just that somehow so much of the good stuff has become really expensive. Sold in stores that act like they’re doing you a big fat favor bringing it to you. And maybe they are, but they shouldn’t act like it. That’s why we started Lucky’s Market.
We believe good food shouldn’t be a luxury, it should be a right. If you don’t want to eat things like pesticides, antibiotics and growth hormones, you shouldn’t have to. Natural and organic food shouldn’t be priced out of your reach. We also have the crazy notion that we shouldn’t adopt a holier-than-thou attitude if your grandma’s recipe calls for something that doesn’t fit some people’s idea of what’s good for you.
