Lucky has come a long way from its historic beginnings but it’s been part of Northern California’s food scene for over eighty years.
Lucky was originally founded in San Leandro, California in 1935. The Lucky brand changed ownership many times over the years but in 2007 The Save Mart Companies acquired the Northern California division of Albertsons and converted the stores back to Lucky. There are now sixty-nine stores employing close to five thousand people in and around the San Francisco Bay and in 2015 the exciting new brand ‘Lucky California’ was born.
Lucky California is a fresh take on the traditional grocery store. It offers a fusion of Bay Area culture, California-sourced foods and a variety of meal solutions – all at competitive prices. Lucky California brings people together around a shared love of food. We employ friendly people who understand your unique food needs and who are passionate about the diverse flavors that Californians love. We are not a specialty store. We’re a reflection of the Bay Area food culture and provide shoppers with diverse and eclectic flavors while still giving our customers a great value on everyday items such as cereal, ground beef and milk. We have everything you need but with the flair and diversity of Northern California.
The soul of Lucky California is a reflection of the many facets and cultures of California.
Our stores curate a blend of international flavors, and international markets and solutions hubs. We have convenience markets, rice and spice markets and a multicultural California merchandising mix with diverse solutions for everyday eating. No single food region dominates the palate here but instead, they all contribute to inspire an integration of flavors for surprising and otherwise untapped California deliciousness. At Lucky California, you may see soy sauce next to marinara and lo mein next to gnocchi – no matter where in the world flavors originate from, we may categorize them all together. We offer food explorations that make it easy for you to integrate diverse flavors like Indian turmeric or islander jackfruit into your everyday routine. With one of most diverse customer bases on the planet, we want to lure you with enticing options like our bao and tapas bars and our rice and spice markets. Our open atmosphere of sharing food inspiration draws a relaxed, smart and savvy shopper who know they will receive competitive prices, everyday solutions and a grocery store destination that is committed to the flavor of California – from the Bay and supported by our valleys.
