Transform Grocery & Convenience
A preferred A&E firm for Lidl, LDG is spear-heading the grocer’s Urban Remodel Initiative. This new retrofit program entails custom store configurations while maintaining Lidl’s brand recognition and corporate design standards. Since partnering with Lidl in 2017, we have assembled a dedicated, client-specific A&E team to best serve them in this fast-paced market sector.
LDG collaborated with Sheetz to create a custom, fuel-free store located on the ground floor of University Place near West Virginia University. At just over 15,000 square feet, this store features a large grocery area, full-sized kitchen, beer cave, wine shop, food service and expanded indoor/outdoor seating, all of which were focused around creating a one-of-a-kind customer experience. LDG has also been an advisor to Sheetz’s sustainability program and completed several Site Designs for traditional, ground-up Stores.
Dandy Mini Mart
Since 2009, LDG has completed over 40 new stores and remodels for the Dandy Mini Mart convenience store chain. From conceptual design, Land Development, Architecture and Engineering, LDG’s full-service approach simplified project coordination and delivery. The largest of which was the new Flagship Store in Towanda, Pennsylvania, which featured a complete quick-service restaurant, grocery, soda cave, and dining area along with dozens of Gasoline, Diesel and CNG fuel islands. LDG also managed Dandy’s store Prototype and provided valuable input on how to further enhance the customer experience while also streamlining construction costs.
