Store Appearance Recognition (StAR) Awards

In 2010, FiSCA launched two new award programs, both centered on encouraging store owner/operators to improve the appearance of their stores. Starting with the 2010 Annual FiSCA Conference, the association recognized members that are operating stores that reflect positively on the industry, and encourage others to do the same, by issuing store appearance-related awards in two categories:

  • Exemplary Store Appearance of the Year Award
  • Store Makeover of the Year Award 

The Exemplary Store Appearance of the Year Award is issued to a FiSCA member that operates stores in a manner that best exemplifies FiSCA’s Store Appearance Best Practices and whose company’s image reflects positively on the industry.

The Store Makeover of the Year Award is issued to companies in four different size categories that in the previous 18 months took action to enhance the appearance of their stores.
