At Eyes on the Street, we’re suckers for a great storfront – from sleek contemporary design to revamped classics. The best storefronts catch your eye, add life to the streetscape, and are creative expressions of commerce. So it’s with great pleasure that we show off the winners of this year’s Storefront Challenge, hosted by the Community Design Collaborative and the Commerce Department.
