Savin Hill Mixed-Use Project Home to The Daily, a Modern Corner Store
The mixed-use development at 110 Savin Hill Avenue in Dorchester saw first residents move in this past summer and The Daily, a modern take on the traditional corner store opened this winter. With the Savin Hill T station across the street and new apartments opening all around, the local developers of this Dorchester property thought this would be the perfect spot to re-introduce the traditional corner store concept but in a fresh and modern way. Visual Dialogue started by giving the concept a name: “The Daily,” which says it all. The bright yellow conveys the sunrise starting each new day while the script type gives a handmade, nostalgic vibe. The design was carried through to the signage, interiors, and even coffee cups, and bags. The shop carries everything from fresh produce to frozen staples and offers meat and seafood departments along with a deli counter and homemade pastries.
