Co-op EC Plus Stores

The challenge

The big ask: Bring an all-new look and feel to Co-op stores with both new fixtures and retrofits to existing equipment. Improve navigation through the store. Invigorate the self-serve food-to-go shopping experience. Inspire shoppers with best-in-class fresh food merchandising while making it simple and fast to shop.

Success factors
