Winners of 2015 Single Store Owner Store Design Contest Revealed
NATIONAL REPORT — Steve Jobs once said design is not just what it looks like and feels like. Design is how it works. All three elements hold true for the winners of the 2015 Convenience Store News for the Single Store Owner Store Design Contest, now in its fifth year.
The annual Single Store Owner Store Design Contest honors both new and rebuilt independently operated convenience stores whose designs excel in areas such as 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 2014 and February 2015. Winners were selected based on innovation, creativity and the positive impact of the design and/or remodel on the single store’s overall business.
