Grocery Store Renovation

Wedge Community Co-op is a grocery store, café, catering company, wholesale distributor, and sustainable food leader that has been a popular fixture in Minneapolis since 1974. Its flagship store on Lyndale Avenue needed an extensive remodeling to align with its updated branding.

Cuningham Group designers added more indoor seating, as well as more space for produce and made-to-order foods along the perimeter of the store. A new bakehouse, expanded produce and bulk sections, and new juice and coffee bars all add to the upgraded amenities. A neutral color palette and oversized punctuating graphics help create a refreshed atmosphere for community members.

On the exterior, a new cantilevered canopy rejuvenates the main entry, while a second entrance at the south caters to bikers and walkers who want to avoid the busy parking lot entrance.
