ST. PETERSBURG — Lucky’s Market, slated to open this summer at the Tyrone Square Mall, has released new details about what the organic grocer’s first Tampa Bay location will offer.

The Colorado-based chain also says it plans to employ 150 by the time the store opens in place of the Sears building at 6765 22nd Ave. N. The new grocery store is part of a larger redevelopment plan alongside several other retailers.

Tampa Bay’s Lucky’s Market will, of course, have its signature $3 glasses of wine to "sip n’ stroll" through the store. (The carts even have cup holders.)

The new 29,000 square-foot store will also have a juice bar. Shoppers will be able to get fresh juice and smoothies in addition to beer and wine.

There’s a planned cafe and outdoor seating area and a bulk section that will offer everything from gourmet coffee beans to gummy bears.

The "apothecary department" will have a wall of supplies so shoppers can make their own teas, salves, tinctures and elixir.

Lucky’s first Florida location opened in Naples in 2016. Since then the grocer has continued its expansion in the Sunshine State with store plans in Sarasota, Panama City, Fort Lauderdale, Port St. Lucie and Bonita Springs.

Other retailers coming to the Tyrone development include Dick’s Sporting Goods, PetSmart, Five Below, LongHorn Steakhouse and Chili’s, according to owner Seritage Growth Properties.
