Tapped in 2010 as the Best Green Store, the Valleyview Shell Super Station was awarded the top honour by Convenience Store Magazine for its geo-thermal heating and cooling technologies. In 2012 this road warrior’s retreat underwent a second round of renovations – this time to the women’s washroom – that garnered rave reviews. Solid alder wood doors with privacy glass panels were installed. To give the ceiling a finish to match, alder wood tongue and groove boards were mounted overhead. Recessed lights accentuate the tiled walls, which are divided by a stripe of smaller stone accents, giving this space a bright, clean feel. The sleek granite countertops and automatic stainless steel fixtures in the washroom offer an attractive balance to the warm tones of the Travertine floor tiles. Ornate carved mirrors and sparkling Victorian style semi-flush mount chandeliers finish off the space by adding a final touch of elegance.
