Marlene’s was a familiar name to Federal Way natural foods customers. But a new location meant attracting traffic to a bigger and better site. I-5 was brought onboard to create a full façade and interior supermarket design plan.
Design and finished product highlights
I-5 took advantage of the new location’s high ceilings and wall-of-windows storefront, designing a stunning façade and entrance sign. Then, for the interior, a complete store layout was devised which included a second story café plus reading and gathering areas. Key design elements included:
• Exterior entrance makeover, featuring new signage, awnings and wood trellis
• Interior floor plan layout, including grocery aisles and departments, plus second story café, seating and gathering
• 3-dimensional department signage on wood trellises
• Themed valances
Production and implementation
Marlene’s new supermarket design elements were created by I-5’s in-house team, then fabricated at our on-site state-of-the-art manufacturing facility. I-5 then seamlessly implemented the design, expediting installation.
Marlene’s new location exuded the friendly, “buy local” attitude the brand had always represented, helping create a multi-use destination for both buying and enjoying natural foods.
