FUNCTIONING MORE LIKE A PIT STOP THAN A DESTINATION, this modern, self-serve micro market gets high marks for creating a convenient, easy-to-use customer experience. A streamlined design with obvious, familiar path options allow students to quickly make purchases at one of the two checkout kiosks. Acting as a hub, a central island is short and open so that visitors can clearly see the extent of the room and decide whether their purchasing path will clockwise or counter-clockwise.
A gondola system for island and wall merchandising provides excellent flexibility. Adjustable shelving on the custom millwork fixtures include stackable, low display cabinets with modular doors. Using panoramic lit panels and changeable graphics on the side walls also removes the dark areas that would have otherwise reinforced the narrow room. A black-on-black palette provides a contemporary backdrop that allows the merchandise to stand out.
