Key Food's Food Emporium of Albertson, NY

August 7, 2018

Off the Wall Co. LLC and Key Food Stores Co-operative Inc., have announced the opening of a completely remodeled Food Emporium.  The new store is located in Albertson, New York.

The Food Emporium banner was acquired from A&P in late 2015 by Key Food Stores Co-op, Inc.  Key Food affiliates operate seven stores of which 4 are Food Emporium stores acquired from A&P, and three are additional stores opened by Key Food.

 

Off The Wall Co. LLC is proud to have been associated with the remodels of 11 Key Food stores over the course of 10 years.  Their latest collaboration with the Brooklyn-based company in Albertson is no exception.  The intent in designing Albertson was to echo many of the elements created by Off The Wall in the Bronx Riverdale Key Food store.  To that end Off The Wall designers kept the New York City/Art Deco feel that was so effective in Riverdale.

Although the store in Albertson has more floor space and cleaner sight lines than the Riverdale store, it was a challenge to keep the original concept in a store that has a much lower ceiling.

Another benefit going into the design of the Albertson Food Emporium was that hindsight enabled the client to know what to do differently from Riverdale.  One good example of this was their request for Off The Wall to fabricate the seafood sign as it was originally engineered: with lights.embedded in each letter.

Differences in layout between previous stores and the new Food Emporium resulted in the design, fabrication, and installation of new decor unique to this store.  Here is the Floral section in Key Foods of Kings Park, NY:

Finally, the size and placement of the produce department in the Food Emporium of Albertson allowed for the design and installation of murals not possible in Riverdale:
