Best New Retail
Main & Vine, Gig Harbor, Wash.
A brand new fresh-format supermarket from The Kroger Co.,
Main & Vine opened its first doors in Gig Harbor, Wash., with an
aim to recharge the routine grocery experience. A large-scale living
green wall, two-story seaside mural and cooking demos make this
truly a nature-driven and community-based store.

An approachable in-store Service Bar serves as
an efficient and easy pick-up point for online
orders-sometimes even within an hour of
purchase. All the customer needs is an ID and the
credit card used to make the purchase. Voila!
