Walmart To Go Store by api(+), Bentonville – Arkansas

May 12th, 2015 by retail design blog


Walmart’s new convenience store prototype, designed by api(+), offers an untraditional mix of grocery items, fresh prepared foods and traditional convenience store products. The first location is now open in Walmart’s hometown, Bentonville, Arkansas, and it is Walmart’s first small format convenience store. Walmart To Go is the retailer’s first small format convenience store. It features illuminated green and yellow exterior branding, splayed “W” columns, logo sparks on the canopy underside, a lowered green entry canopy and an expansive glass storefront accommodating views to the interior. The experience inside and products inside are enhanced by polished concrete floors, galvanized cooler panels, and exposed finishes that create an urban loft theme.


The Association for Retail Environments has honored api(+) with the gold award in the convenience store category of the A.R.E. Design Awards prototype design for Walmart To Go. The 2015 A.R.E. Design Awards celebrated adventures in retail from around the world with an awards presentation at GlobalShop in Las Vegas, which showcased Walmart To Go among winning projects from nine countries.
