Lucky's Market has opened the only full-service grocer in downtown Columbia, Mo. The 30,000-square-foot store, the chain's first in the state, boasts an 11,000-square-foot liquor store, with a tasting bar. Owner Bo Sharon plans to open a patio beer garden as well, where customers can listen to live music every Friday night. The store, located in a food desert, accepts Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program benefits and supports local charities, rotating organizations every three months.
