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
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.
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.

and exteriors to determine areas that may need to be upgraded. Store
