PG Applauds 2012 Store Design Contest Winners

From a brilliantly rebuilt community-focused store situated in the heart of Oklahoma's "Tornado Alley," to a family-owned independent grocer seeking to re-establish its mojo with a broad and changing urban Chicago clientele, these and eight other supermarkets that have opened in the past year have been chosen as the first-place winners of Progressive Grocer's third annual Store Design Contest.  The full story can be found here.
