Lucky Bayview represents transformational new chapter for the company


SAN FRANCISCO – October 26, 2022 – The Save Mart Companies (TSMC), California’s largest regional grocer, announced today the opening of its eagerly anticipated, innovative new Lucky Bayview grocery store. Located in San Francisco’s Bayview neighborhood, this grocery store offers residents and businesses fresh quality groceries and meal solutions at the low prices that Lucky stands for as a low-price leader. 

“The opening of Lucky Bayview, a small-footprint, full-service store, represents a transformational new chapter in The Save Mart Companies’ storied history of serving our shoppers and fulfilling their needs with innovative and affordable solutions,” said Shane Sampson, executive chairman of the board of The Save Mart Companies.  “This store repurposes and maximizes a vacated 9,549-square-foot retail location and to affirm Lucky’s commitment to the community, ‘Bayview’ is incorporated into the store’s name.”  

In addition to providing quality groceries, Lucky Bayview is committed to working with community groups and organizations and hiring directly from the neighborhood. Lucky Bayview is working with Young Community Developers in Bayview for employment opportunities. Currently, 90% of the store team is from the Bayview community. Furthermore, to celebrate the grand opening, Lucky Bayview announced $3,000 in community investments including $1,000 to Dr. George Washington Carver Elementary School.  Lucky Bayview designated Carver Elementary School for its Adopt-A-School program which will provide year-round support from the Lucky Bayview team including teacher treats, donated books for National Reading Day, store tours and other resources. Bayview Senior Services received a $1,000 gift card donation to help support cooking class demonstrations and Bayview Hunter’s Point YMCA received a $1,000 gift card donation to help support the Primed and Prepped Culinary Arts Program.
