    Best Sky’s the Limit Remodel: Metro Market

    This Georgia c-store combines gourmet food with walk-in convenience.

    Best Sky’s the Limit Remodel
    Winner: Metro Market, Augusta, Ga.
    Designer: Paragon Solutions

    Metro Market by Sprint is “a larger-than-it-appears convenience store” in downtown Augusta that combines gourmet food with walk-in convenience and a rooftop bar, according to its designer.  

    Dimensional graphics and unexpected architectural details, such as coffered ceilings, textured wall treatments and black porcelain enamel subway tile, add interest while creating a warm environment. The store’s neutral palette and crisp materials also create a high-end shopping experience.

    Custom food orders are encouraged with easy access to kiosks and succinct signage simplifying the process. Plus, a well-thought-out layout and clear wayfinding provide easy navigation.

    Although the retailer Sprint Food Stores Inc. was challenged with incorporating all the convenience of a c-store into the building’s long, slender footprint, the remodel’s results have been high foot traffic and abundant customer praise.
