KRS is over the moon to be honored with three retail store design awards by Progressive Grocer in its annual store design contest 2013.
Best Store Remodel, Over $6 Million was awarded for Fresh St. Market (Vancouver, BC). "Simple, rustic materials, such as exposed-grain edges of wood and metallic features, enhance the "street market" feel."
Best Hybrid Concept was awarded for UO Fresh Marketcafe (University of Oregon). "Leave it to the über-cool University of Oregon (UO) to fuse the best of quick-service restaurant, café, and retail food boutique with a single POS to produce a hybrid standout known as Fresh Marketcafé."
Best International Store was awarded for La Cadena (Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic). "A sleek, contemporary design showcases goods and services in a setting that delivers on the grocer's desire to blow away the competition, creating an easily shoppable space in just 8,000 square feet."
