A.K. Rikk's Takes Home an ARE Award for Outstanding Merit


On April 16, 2013, the Association for Retail Environments (A.R.E) Design Awards were given out at a ceremony in Downtown Chicago at the Hard Rock Cafe.  The 72 winners were awarded for excellence in all aspects of retail design from 51 projects all over the world.  With a record breaking 2,000+ entries, the prestigious winners had to beat out the highest number of entries ever to take home awards in 23 categories.

One of the most significant design projects in our recent history, A.K. Rikk's, was recognized for Outstanding Merit in the Specialty Store over 25,000 square feet category.  What an honor it was for us to be set apart amongst the highest caliber retail projects in the industry!
