    Quote:
    A grocery store in Boulder, Colo., is making the leap to a chain operation — and Clintonville is on tap as its first new location.

    Lucky’s Farmers Market of Columbus LLC filed incorporation papers with the Ohio Secretary of State’s Office on Jan. 7, but prior to that, a local attorney had initiated the process for obtaining variances for the proposed store at 2784 N. High St., formerly a Goodwill thrift store.

    The new store will be located across the street from Giant Eagle.

    Since they are claiming to be a one stop shop it feels like a poor choice in locations. If they were striving for a specialty niche like Rife’s in Grandview (across from the 5th Ave Giant Eagle) it would make a lot more sense.

    Seems like everyone is opening or expanding grocery stores these days.

    ETA: They are pushing local and organic so maybe it is more like a Hills Market.

    I think this is something like what people would like near the new Columbus Commons apartments. There seems to already be a lot of grocery options in that part of Clintonville.

    Hmm I’m a little skeptical just because of the immediate proximity of Giant Eagle across the street, but I guess more options is always a good thing.

    Maybe filling this vacancy can spur some development on the old White Castle property across the street.

    This concept also sounds like it would work well in GE’s Vic Village spot, if they end up vacating it as expected.

    +1 I think there is more than enough people and money in that area to support a high quality grocery. It is also on a High Street bus line so easy access to OSU students.

    That or a Trader Joe’s would be great.

    It sounds a lot like a Hills Market, including hot prepared foods but stresses that they have low prices on their local and organic foods. Will be interesting to see.

    ^ That sounds really, really good. I don’t know how people could not be excited by this.

    There is a whole section on there about community values.

    I don’t know, maybe they aren’t afraid of Giant Eagle.

    I find GE to be overpriced for mediocre quality food. I would rather shop for best value. If nothing else, prospective customers are right across the street. Maybe it is the CVS/Walgreens strategy?

    With Ackerman/Dodridge now open that is a pretty easy area to get to.

    Yes, they do. I live there. I love change. Options are one of my favorite things. I’m really confused by your post. How does a new grocery store from boulder opening indicate that an entire neighborhood is resistant to change?

    Tounge in check reference to some of the longtime residents who put a stop to various developments including the condos at High & California.
