Modern Store Equipment has been offering quality custom glass door walk-ins since 1958. We also offer pre-engineered walk-ins for liquor stores, convenience stores and supermarkets.

"We installed a two and a three door temperature-controlled wine display unit. Quality is amazing! Modern Store even sent me progress pictures of the units during construction. Everyone that I dealt with was professional and courteous.
I highly recommend them!"

Refrigeration Systems

Precise calculation of the refrigeration system is critical to your bottom line. Oversized systems cost more to purchase and require more energy to run. Oversized refrigeration systems also negate costly systems in place to manage humidity. The result of purchasing more refrigeration than you need: wasted dollars after wasted dollars.

Our calculator was developed specifically for walk-ins by a refrigeration engineer. You can be assured you will get the right size for your needs… as well as years of worry-free service.

Also available: Super Cold Beer Systems to chill to 30°
