Admiral Thriftway

Seattle, Washington

Project Objectives

Dated décor and interior signage in their existing supermarket brought Admiral Thriftway to I-5 Design. They’re desire was for a store design that would revitalize the supermarket and provide a new, modern atmosphere for shoppers. I-5 imagined and implemented a completely new look for Admiral Thriftway, bringing a warm "market" atmosphere to the setting with natural tones and materials and country accents throughout.

Design & Planning

A new, appealing shopping environment energized Admiral Thriftway's business, attracting new customers and giving existing customers good reasons to visit more often.

A rich, rustic element was achieved by incorporating custom ceramic glass relief artwork into the  identifying signage designed for each department. Aisle signs were also custom designed and manufactured, along with department and perimeter valances.  From the updated custom exterior signage to all the specialty details within the store, I-5 was able to provide Admiral Thriftway with a more modern and enjoyable shopping experience for its customers.

Thanks to their one-source “concept to completion” services and capabilities, I-5 was able to create a store design, fabricate, ship, and install every aspect of the Admiral Thriftway renovation. This kind of one-stop management means a seamless, expedited process as well as preservation of design intent through implementation.
