January 24, 2020 - Fifty workers will lose their jobs when Lucky's Market shuts down its St. Petersburg store. The layoffs could begin as soon as today, the grocery chain said in a Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification sent to the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity. The company also gave notice to the City of St. Petersburg government. The largest groups of workers losing their jobs are 13 front-end courtesy team members and 12 front-end cashiers. The layoffs will occur in phases until the store, at 6765 22nd Ave. N. in Tyrone Square, closes permanently, the WARN said. Operations will cease no sooner than March 24 and no later than April 7. "We regret the economic circumstances that have required us to make this painful decision.
