Fresh Thyme Farmers Market

Fresh Thyme Farmers Market is a new natural and organic grocery chain which opened its 1st store in April 2014. Fresh Thyme has aggressive plans to expand throughout the Midwest. The stores are warm and inviting with wood finishes throughout. Designed by API+, CIP Retail fabricates and installs all of the decor and signage, which includes elements such as printed graphics on corrugated metal, T1-11 and other wood substrates, along with cedar trims throughout.

Sprouts Farmers Market

Sprouts Farmers Market is a successful natural and organic grocery chain with over 200 locations and aggressive plans to expand their “Healthy Living for Less” concept nationwide. The stores are bright and cheery with cedar wood finishes throughout and a colorful farm scene mural that anchors the produce department. Along with providing decor and signage for their new stores, CIP has successfully partnered with Sprouts through their mergers/acquisition of the Henry’s Farmers Market and Sunflower Farmers Market chains.


For their new 78,000 square foot flagship store, Martin’s wanted a substantial interior upgrade. This was accomplished with a neutral color scheme that didn’t compete with the merchandise. The decor package is highlighted by a large mural depicting farmers harvesting fresh produce, and a cantilever signage system designed to give the feeling of village shops in a street environment.


A state-of-the-art décor package combined with innovative fixture layout and superior merchandising resulted in a truly world-class space when Schnuck Markets opened their flagship store in the St. Louis suburb of Des Peres. With the design effort led by API+, CIP not only executed the décor fabrication and installed all interior components, but worked closely with the designer to develop budget-minded solutions for a number of complex elements.

United Market Street

Market Street was a new concept store developed specifically for the United Supermarket chain. The flagship store was designed by Shook Kelley and created an environment that meets the branding message of United Supermarket in this upscale format. The store features unique sweeping basket weave floating soffits encompassing the sales area instead of traditional soffit construction. The store also features natural woods, large trellises, and distinct Texas architecture and construction. United Supermarkets continues to expand this concept into numerous other Texas locations.

Berkot’s Super Foods

Berkot’s Super Foods has experienced impressive growth over the past 15 years, expanding throughout the various suburbs south of Chicago. CIP has worked with Berkot’s on their past 9 projects, each of them with their own unique interior design concept tailored to fit the local demography. Berkot’s wanted a clean, contemporary feel for their Midlothian location. CIP delivered this modern decor concept using visually appealing architectural features and backlit LED graphics throughout.
