CES Opens New Store in Orlando, FL

Sept. 22, 2021
The grand opening had promotions, food and raffles for over 30 prizes, with the proceeds going back to Make-A-Wish.

City Electric Supply (CES) recently celebrated the grand opening of its new Orlando Central store. “We pushed hard to get the branch ready. There’s a lot of our sweat and elbow grease that went into building out the office, showroom and warehouse. To see the branch doors open for the first time, a couple of months ago, and to see our business grow every single day is incredibly fulfilling,” said District Manager Micah O’Steen in the press release. 

The startup of building the branch was pushed back to October of 2020 due to the pandemic, with the initial plans to be earlier that year. Seeing the store come to life, the CES team felt the excitement and anticipation of being able to finally open. CES Orlando hosted over 100 attendees and vendors and included a fundraising event to help raise money for Make-A-Wish . The most recent partnership that City Electric Supply has with Make-A-Wish was made possible by its social impact program, CES Cares. CES is a proud national partner of Make-A-Wish and supports its goal of granting life-changing wishes to children with critical illnesses.

“CES Cares was created to help employees give back to causes they care about in their communities. Make-A-Wish gives them the opportunity to do that as the funds raised at each branch create a positive impact on Wish Kids and their families living in their community,” said Social Impact Manager for CES Cares Karen Gray, in the release.

The grand opening had promotions, food, and raffles for over 30 prizes, with the proceeds going back to Make-A-Wish. “When I found out CES and Make-A-Wish teamed up, our branch had already started discussing how we could help and make an impact. Once we knew we had the green light to start having events again, we knew it was a no-brainer to combine the two and hopefully raise a TON of money for an amazing program,” said Robert Burrows, branch manager.

Raising over $2,200 for Make-A-Wish, CES could not be more excited that the grand opening was such a success.
