New York, NY (06/03/2011) – CBX, the strategic branding and retail design firm, today announced that its design for the Duane Reade Growler Bar in Brooklyn, NY, received the award for Best Specialty Department in the 2011 CSNews Store Design Awards.
A total of 14 Convenience Retailers were cited in the 2011 Awards.
For Duane Reade’s Williamsburg, Brooklyn store, CBX helped create a store within a store for the growler bar (a new way – or should we say old way – to buy beer dispensed straight from the keg into a “growler” -a 64 oz. refillable bottle). The New York sense of style is everywhere, from the name, “Brew York City”, to the detailed skyline of Williamsburg and references to the adjacent subway line.
“We designed the growler bar to have its own unique look and feel, but fit cohesively within the Duane Reade, New York-centric store experience,” says Todd Maute, partner, CBX.
Photos and descriptions of the winners will appear in the September and October issues of Convenience Store News.
