Alexander Isley (Redding, Conn.) recently designed the new Goodwill store in Westport, Conn. Goodwill was looking for a fresh new approach to the shopping experience, and asked the firm to create an engaging design that would also devote the bulk of floorspace to merchandise, integrate durable materials, and be low-cost. The new store is topping all single-store sales records in the region. The look will be applied to new and existing stores in Connecticut.
