Store Design: Bringing the Czech to Convenience

Texas store embraces heritage and designs site to showcase one of its greatest commodities: sausage

In an effort to create something that is so much more than your standard c-store, designers from Paragon Solutions, Fort Worth, Texas, and retailer Slovacek’s went hog wild when they developed a new, one-of-a-kind c-store in West, Texas.

The 17,690-square-foot site, which opened in December, most recently was an old steakhouse. Slovacek’s previously had only deli locations in the Fort Worth area. The new building, adorned with reclaimed wood, metal and the company’s famous kissing-pigs logo, houses a café, deli and meat market, dog park, bakery, frozen-yogurt station, gift shop and drive-thru.
