    The five categories include two for new ground-up construction, and three for store remodeling projects ranging from modest to unlimited, in the following classes:

    * Best Overall Store Design (new ground-up construction, under 50,000-square-feet)
    * Best Overall Store Design (new ground-up construction, over 50,000-square-feet)
    * Best Low-cost Remodel (less than $2 million)
    * Best Mid-budget Remodel ($2 million to $5 million)
    * “Sky’s the Limit” Remodel (over $5 million)

    Construction of eligible store designs and remodels must have been completed between January 2010 and December 2010.

    Entry rules:

    1. Deadline for entries is May 6, 2011. All others may be disqualified.
