When Fabrication Builds Community

Rich Rizzardi

26 June 2020

STAR is partnering with Cub to build temporary grocery stores in the parking lots of their stores devastated by the recent riots in Minneapolis. Beginning July 8, the first Community Market will open to support those left without convenient access to groceries. In less than 3 weeks we designed, fabricated and now leading the building  of these temporary stores. As an experiential marketing company, for 28 years STAR has been creating custom branded environments that enhance human to human experiences. Our core values is to focus on "Community as a Catalyst." This informs as we identify new ways to make a difference with our unique design, fabrication and installation capabilities. What a better way to Engage. Connect. Convert. 

Mark Johnson, STAR's  CEO, has been at the build site daily to lend a hand to our fabrication team. Not only is he passionate about helping Minneapolis rebuild in these communities, he sits on the board of ACES (Athletes Committed to Educating Students) and many of the families served by their mission have been directly impacted.

We are proud to partner with a values-driven organization like Cub as we serve the community.
