JERSEY CITY, N.J. — One month remains to enter the 10th annual Convenience Store News Store Design Contest. Entries from both c-store chains and single-store owners will be accepted through July 1. The program honors new and rebuilt c-stores whose designs excel in areas such as interior layout, use and effectiveness of signage and logos, and exterior property and landscaping.
Awards will be presented separately to chains and single stores in six different categories based on the scope of the project and the store's overall look:
- Best Original Store Design (new build)
- Best Interior Design (new build)
- Best "Green" Design
- Best Low Cost Remodel (less than $100,000)
- Best Mid-Budget Remodel ($100,000 to $250,000)
- "The Sky's the Limit" Remodel (more than $250,000)
Construction or remodeling of eligible stores must have taken place between January 2014 and February 2015. Winners will be selected based on innovation, creativity and the positive impact of the design and/or remodel on the retailer's overall business.
All entries must include a completed official entry form; a brief description of the store; design/remodel objectives; challenges and results; before and after images; and a handling fee of $125 for chains and $75 for single stores. Multiple entries by one company in each category are permitted as long as the designs are different and unique.
