On May 14, Boulder, Colorado-based Lucky's Market opened the fifth store in a multistore expansion that fans across the Midwest and Rocky Mountain region.

The new Louisville, Kentucky, store joins two others that opened this year in Billings, Montana, and Columbia, Missouri. Last year, the retail chain opened locations in Longmont, Colorado and Columbus, Ohio. Lucky's beginninigs date back to 2003 when Bo Sharon and wife Trish Sharon opened the first Lucky’s Market in Boulder, Colorado. Bo Sharon also owns Lucky's Cafe and Lucky's Bakehouse and Creamery in Boulder.

“We are incredibly proud to open in Kentucky,” Bo Sharon said via press release. “We imagine our stores as an oasis of health, kindness and support, the kind of store we love to shop in ourselves. Boulder is a big town for natural food, and we hope to share the best of that in Louisville. We also hope you’ll find some new tastes for your kitchen, either as inspiring ingredients or at our chef-quality deli counter–-and we cannot wait to discover some fantastic Kentucky farmers and vendors as well.”

Here's a look inside the store.
