Touch of Gold Fine Jewellery named a finalist for the 2015 In-Store Experience & Design Award by the Retail Council of Canada.
Every year the Retail Council of Canada recognizes the best of the best in the retail industry at their Excellence in Retailing Awards gala. This year, our client Touch of Gold Fine Jewellery of Halifax, Nova Scotia was named a finalist for the In-Store Experience & Design Award. What made this really exceptional was the fact that they were one of the few independents to be nominated in the category which was dominated by large, national retail chains.
The nomination was in recognition of Touch of Gold Fine Jewellery’s re-designed store environment which was created by Launch by Design Inc. and built by our colleagues and good friends at rcs Construction Canada and Mill-Right Woodworking Inc. of Halifax.
The In-Store Experience & Design Award is no vanity prize. To be nominated your design has to demonstrate an innovative, original and visually enticing in-store experience plus have an impact on the success of the retailer too. That’s the part that really spoke to us at Launch by Design Inc. where our retail store design philosophy is that the design has to move product as much as it moves emotions.
The awards gala in Toronto was a wonderful night out with lots of great work showcased. Even though Touch of Gold Fine Jewellery didn’t bring home the gold, we still tip our hats to the category co-winners FGL Sports Limited who won for their Sport Chek store in the West Edmonton Mall and Sephora who won for their Robson Avenue location in Vancouver.
