We’re absolutely over the moon to announce that we scooped not one, but two, prestigious A.R.E. Design awards at GlobalShop 2016, the world’s largest annual retail design show recently hosted in Las Vegas. The A.R.E. Design Awards are the USA’s largest and most prestigious store design awards, recognising the very best in international retail design, so we were up against some serious contenders on the global stage.
We’re extremely proud of our new store concepts for SuperValu and Centra, which both won Gold A.R.E. Design awards. SuperValu’s Blackrock took Best Supermarket and Centra O’Connell Street in Limerick won Best Convenience Store.
The SuperValu and Centra projects complemented the conference’s big focus on customer experience design and what it means for retail. The store concepts were acknowledged for responding to the new food trends on the rise, improving the in-store experience and truly differentiating themselves from competitors. Our SuperValu ‘Food Festival’ concept was recognised for celebrating the shared joy of food, with the renewed energy that champions quality, people, local and freshness.
Overall another great success!
