This Year’s Best-Designed C-store Chains Are…
CSNews Store Design Contest honors 10 retailers delivering a unique experience.
It’s one thing to have an attractive store that grabs the attention of motorists driving by. It’s another thing to have an attractive store that delivers an in-store experience unlike anything else consumers have ever encountered at a convenience store. The winners of the 2016 Convenience Store News Store Design Contest achieve both — with flair.
Now in its 11th year, the awards program honors new and rebuilt c-stores whose designs excel in areas such as branding, interior layout, use and effectiveness of signage and logos, and exterior property and landscaping. Construction or remodeling of eligible stores must have taken place between January 2015 and April 2016. Winners were selected based on innovation, creativity, and the positive impact of the design and/or remodel on the retailer’s overall business.
