Dave’s Fresh Marketplace

Dave’s is Rhode Island’s largest independent grocer with 10 locations throughout Rhode Island. Dave’s has established an outstanding reputation for quality products and superior customer service. For many years, CIP has worked with Dave’s to create very unique shopping environments with a distinct New England feel. In fact, CIP is often asked to not only emulate the local architecture of New England but many of the specific town’s historic buildings. These special touches and other localized elements reinforce how much Dave’s is proud to be an integral part of the communities they serve.


United Supermarkets turned to CIP Retail for the design and development of their new Amigos concept which pays homage to the Hispanic heritage of West Texas. Each department was treated with its own individual graphic design flair and is identified bilingually. The rustic and colorful storefronts were created utilizing a multitude of materials and manufacturing methodologies with realism being the ultimate goal. The finished project represents a vibrant, festive shopping experience that keeps customers coming back time and time again.
