Our work includes prototype design and roll-out production for numerous national clients and local businesses.


The Talbots, Inc.

Various Retail Locations Throughout the US

Group 7 Design provides services for Talbots free standing and mall retail locations throughout the country. Each project is tailored to its specific footprint and local code requirements.



Located at the intersection of two main corridors, the leased area was 50% storefront. The storefront’s transparency and fixture layout capture the customer’s attention. Merchandise is featured in small cases along the windows and taller back-lit cases along the full height walls beyond.



For more than 25 years, Group 7 Design has provided complete store planning services for over 500 FYE retail stores. Services include survey and as-built drawings, preliminary fixture layouts, production drawings, permit expediting, review of the construction exhibits to the lease, and coordination with the general contractor and landlord.



Group 7 Design created prototype design, production drawings and provided construction management services for more than 50 stores for this specialty retailer selling state-of-the-art hearing aid devices. We designed a contemporary and inviting space to engage the customer. Interactive displays, combined with sophisticated finishes and furnishings, were selected to appeal to the wide range of customer age groups that enter the store. Group 7 Design developed branding, graphics, fixtures, and venues.



United States, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom

Group 7 Design designed this 6,400 sq. ft. prototype Showcase store for Bose in partnership with Jordan’s Furniture. The store provides a unique shopping environment for audio/video equipment as well as home theater furnishings. Located adjacent to the Imax Theater, the store has significant foot traffic. The striking storefront entices potential shoppers. Once inside, the undulating soffits, simple graphics, store fixture system and surrounding theater rooms provide energy and excitement. We have also developed plans for more than 100 Bose Factory and Showcase Stores throughout the United States, Puerto Rico and the United Kingdom.
