Lucci’s To Close After 66 Years, Sold To McKinnon’s Supermarkets; Gradual Transition Will Lead To Grand Opening In Mid-July

Below is a press release from McKinnon’s Supermarkets:

WILMINGTON, MA — McKinnon’s Supermarkets and Lucci’s Market are pleased to announce that McKinnon’s has purchased the Lucci’s business and will operate under the McKinnon’s Supermarkets banner. The acquisition of Lucci’s fits into McKinnon’s mission to provide quality meat and grocery products to customers in the greater Boston area.

“We hope to bring the best of the Lucci’s and McKinnon’s traditions together to the Wilmington location” said Ed & Carl Penta, brothers and co-owners of McKinnon’s. “Lucci’s has been an important business in Wilmington for many years, and we hope to continue that tradition as important part of the community there. In response to the many questions on the matter, we definitely will be keeping Lucci’s famous subs and sandwiches just as they are.”

Lucci’s Market has been a family-owned market, known for its deli and Susan’s Kitchen, with a long-held legacy of quality products and customer service. McKinnon’s itself has been family owned and operated since 1946. McKinnon’s will continue to operate the store much the same as John and Susan Lucci and the Lucci family have for the last 66 years, but will bring to the location their expertise and signature selection of fresh and marinated meats, including McKinnon’s Best Angus and their famous Marinated Sirloin Tips.

“We are happy to be selling the business to the Penta Family and McKinnon’s. We feel very comfortable with their ownership style and know they will treat the customers, store and employees well,” said John and Susan Lucci.

All Lucci’s current employees will be employed by McKinnon’s. Over the next few weeks McKinnon’s hopes to make the gradual transition to the McKinnon’s brand, and they look forward to a mid-July 2022 grand re-opening as McKinnon’s Market.
