Natural Grocers to fill Lucky's Market Vacancy
The Springfield News-Leader reported late last week that a Natural Grocers store will open later this year in the building that formerly housed Lucky’s Market. The natural and organic grocery chain has nearby locations in Joplin, Fayetteville, Jefferson City and Columbia, but the South Glenstone location will be the first in the Springfield area. Lucky’s Market’s Springfield location closed in early 2020 after a partnership between the brand and the larger grocery chain Kroger ended. Natural Grocers will offer products similar to what Lucky’s once did, including organic produce, meat and dairy products as well as personal care and home products. According to the News-Leader’s reporting, Natural Grocers will also offer one-on-one health coaching sessions at the Springfield location which should open in early fall 2021. A second Hy-Vee is also scheduled to open on Springfield’s east side in the coming year and a Costco is under construction as well.
