44 Convenience Store News | NOVEMBER 2016 | WWW.CSNEWS.COM cover story Best s ky's the l imit r em OD el Winner: All-N-1, Campti, La. Designer: Paragon Solutions Following its remodel, All-N-1 is not just a convenience store; it is a painting brought to life in the form of a store, according to the designer that worked with owner Glenn Moffett of Moffett Oil Co. to not only renovate the Campti, La., location, but also expand it. The new store spans 3,806 square feet vs. the original store of 2,690 square feet. To give the new All-N-1 a vibrant Louisiana flavor with lots of personality, the redesign features bright pops of color that are complemented by wood plank finishes and industrial brushed metal signage. The result is a store design that is "spectacular in color and movement," according to the designer Paragon Solutions. In particular, the artistic designs on the checkout counter and the bathroom doors add beauty and class to the store's interior. Customers can feast on the d├ęcor along with the foodservice offerings at the store. The exis- tence of a Papa John's pizza location inside was an extra challenge during the design process, as the final result had to work well with the quick- service restaurant's branding. Ultimately, All-N-1 now has a distinctive look that makes it an attractive and fun place to shop. Best i nteri O r Design Winner: Grab.n.Go Food Mart, Marshall, Texas Designer: Paragon Solutions The redesign goal for the 5,325-square-foot Grab.n.Go store in Marshall, Texas, was to create a store interior that is both impactful and vibrant. The colorful results provided exactly that. Designers created an eye-catching theme through the store's repeated use of circles and colorful finishes of modern-day pop art. This motif complements the dark walnut wood that is intended to ground the circular clouds that float above the checkout counter. To provide a contrasting palette, designers installed brick walls alongside "verdant green and tomato red" colors for an unexpected bal- ance of charm and intrigue. Bright graphics and whimsical signage add to the welcoming, playful feel while providing clear guidance to customers. Even outside the store, the strong linear elements of muted brick and horizontal metal facing work to ground the colorful offerings that await customers just inside.
