Amazon Launches Delivery Service for Lucky Supermarkets in Selected Areas

Amazon is broadening its swift grocery delivery services in collaboration with The Save Mart Companies.

As per an email shared with Chain Store Age by an Amazon spokesperson, the online retail behemoth now provides same-day, two-hour grocery delivery from Lucky Supermarkets outlets in specific cities across the San Francisco Bay Area.

A subsidiary of The Save Mart Companies, Lucky manages approximately 70 stores in the Bay Area.

This delivery alliance follows a parallel two-hour delivery initiative Amazon initiated with another Save Mart Companies brand, Save Mart, in chosen California outlets back in October 2022.

“Our objective is to establish a premier grocery shopping experience — whether through in-store visits or online purchases — where Amazon stands out as the preferred choice for variety, value, and convenience,” expressed the spokesperson in the email.

“As part of this endeavor, we’re collaborating with third-party retailers already favored by our customers, such as Lucky, to offer an expanded selection at competitive prices with direct delivery through our platform.”

Residents of the Bay Area with access to Lucky’s delivery service can conveniently shop on Amazon via a designated webpage or the Amazon app.

To mark the debut of Lucky on Amazon, the online retailer extends a special offer to Prime members, granting them complimentary delivery on their first three Lucky orders totaling $10 or more.

In 2023, Amazon initiated a service allowing non-Prime members to avail themselves of delivery from various local grocery and specialty retailers listed on

This encompassed a same-day delivery collaboration with regional grocer Weis Markets in cities across New Jersey, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.

In April 2024, Amazon introduced a new optional benefit for Amazon Prime members and EBT recipients, offering unlimited grocery delivery for a monthly fee.

Eligible deliveries include those from Whole Foods Market, Amazon Fresh, and other local grocery and specialty retailers, including Save Mart, for orders exceeding $35.

The Save Mart Companies, a portfolio company of Kingswood Capital Management, LP, and a California-based grocery retailer, oversees approximately 200 Save Mart, Lucky, and FoodMaxx stores across California and Western Nevada.

Alongside its retail endeavors, the Company operates SMART Refrigerated Transport and is a partner in Super Store Industries (“SSI”), which manages a distribution center in Lathrop, as well as the Sunnyside Farms dairy processing plant in Turlock, Calif.
