Convenience Store News 2019 Store Design Contest: Best Interior Design
MIAMI SHORES, Fla. — Today's modern conveniences are breaking barriers to serve customers wherever and whenever with amenities like drive-thru and delivery. Barry University administrators believe students and faculty, who face limitations like location accessibility and time constraints, shouldn't be exempt from this equation. That's why they sought to create a new modern convenience store, combining some of the traditional elements of the bookstore and the snack shop.
Debuting Jan. 17, Union Market at Landon Student Union is sure to raise the GPA of the student body, according to the c-store’s nominator. Embracing a "Live Well & Thrive" school of thought throughout the store space, Union Market's bright, modern atmosphere features minimalistic graphics and pops of bright green throughout. Clean white subway tile and warm wood finishes provide a sleek contrast against gray finishes.
Large photo decals in the seating area embrace student life, and signage calling out to "Hydrate" above the packaged beverages cooler and "Live Well" above the fresh grab-and-go cold case reinforce the on-the-move lifestyles of students and faculty.
