Lighting One announces four new members to its continually growing network of more than 130 national showrooms: Lighting by Design, Jessup, Md.; Idaho Lights Inc., Coeur D'Alene, Idaho; Evergreen Lighting, Spokane, Wash.; and Olson Lighting, Holly Hill, Fla.
Lighting One, with headquarters in St. Louis, is the largest independent lighting showroom cooperative in the United States. By aggressively seeking a select group of qualified retail entrepreneurs looking to grow their businesses, Lighting One hopes to continue to increase its purchasing and marketing power.
“Both our customers and members benefit when we attract successful business owners to our network, ultimately increasing our ability to offer top quality lighting products and services at lower prices,” said Mike Cherico, Lighting One president.
Although all stores in the Lighting One network remain independently owned and operated, each showroom has the advantage of combining purchase volumes and other resources to receive discounts and services usually reserved for larger companies. Subsequently, as the membership grows, Lighting One can continue to negotiate better discounts and services with vendors, including lower rates, enhanced rebates, increased terms, and lower freight minimums. This gives Lighting One members the power to differentiate themselves from the big box stores in their markets by stocking exclusively priced goods from the most respected manufacturers in the lighting industry.
