AU Energy’s Loop Neighborhood convenience stores are modern inside and out, from architecture to product mix. At 3,200 square feet, these units cater to the local neighborhood with a mix of healthy and indulgent products.
Loop’s sales counter is located in the center of the store to better serve customers no matter where they are shopping. The lighting in Loop is much more efficient and brighter than before, which helps showcase the c-store’s product assortment. Loop value-engineered its gondolas and other equipment to lower costs and improve durability.
What the Experts Say
Loop is a wonderful step into what contemporary should be. Loop has matched a warm and friendly environment with a wonderful selection of fresh convenience products. White subway tiles are matched with warm grey tones to give a subtle background that allows the pops of Loop’s signature orange and yellow to greet customers like a California sunset. Food is featured throughout the store with Euro-style hot cases at the counter and open deli cases on the floor. —Mike Lawshe, president and CEO, Paragon Solutions
