Columbus, OH —  CASTO, in collaboration with Lucky’s Market, is pleased to announce that construction has started on the new Lucky’s Market at the Thurber Village redevelopment with an expected opening in the summer of 2024. This store will be the latest addition to the locally owned Lucky’s Market stores in Cleveland and Columbus.

Learn more about what to expect at the new location from the Lucky’s Market team:

“At the new Lucky’s Market, customers can look forward to the freshest farmers market-style produce, natural and organic foods, and sweets from the bakery. It will also feature Lucky’s famous bacon and ground in house sausage, Boars Head products, hot made-to-order signature sandwiches, and fresh made in-house prepared foods from the kitchen. Lucky’s will also offer an extensive variety of healthy living products including vitamins, supplements, and body care.  The new location will feature an extensive amount of beer, wine, seltzer, and ready-to-drink can cocktail selections, with an emphasis on Ohio and Midwest favorites. Lucky’s loves local, customers can count on seeing local brands highlighted throughout the store. And shoppers will absolutely be able to find the grocery staples to round out a full shopping experience.”

“We are excited to see our newest Lucky’s Market coming out of the ground as part of the Thurber Village redevelopment.  We look forward to opening our doors to our future neighbors and the surrounding community with an expected opening in the summer of 2024. My family is in our 5th generation of ownership, we all live in Ohio and are made up of Buckeye alumni and former Columbus residents. This store will be the latest addition to our growing family of locally owned and operated grocery stores in Ohio,” said Aaron Saltzman, Vice President of Lucky’s Market. “We are committed to providing our customers with the freshest, highest quality products and services, and we believe that this new store will be a great addition to the community. We have more details to come in the months ahead…but for now, we are getting to work!”

Construction for the overall development commenced in October 2022. The project’s initial phases included demolition of the existing buildings and construction of the new, freestanding CVS location. The CVS building is nearing completion, with an anticipated opening later this summer.  This next phase of the commercial portion of the project will focus on the new ± 21,000 square foot Lucky’s Market at the corner of Collins Avenue and Neil Avenue.

“We are so pleased to start this next phase of the redevelopment in getting the new CVS ready to open while getting the Lucky’s Market construction underway,” said Eric Leibowitz, Vice President of Development and Leasing at CASTO. “The fact that we are at this point in the project timeline is a testament to CASTO’S construction group and the Elford team.  We knew at the outset of the project that the logistics and timeline of the retail buildings had some challenges, and the collaborative effort between the CASTO and Elford construction teams on the CVS and Lucky’s Market buildings has been exceptional in keeping things on track.”
