Why A Cooperative?
Lighting One has built its success based on the core values of a cooperative. Cooperative businesses have a very positive social and economic impact on local communities.
Belonging to a cooperative allows locally owned businesses to operate more profitably in the increasingly competitive marketplace while retaining their independence.
Without changing the business, a cooperative allows independent retailers to connect to thousands of other locally owned businesses and unite in size and scale against the competition.
United forces strengthen each member’s competitive edge with increased purchasing power, resulting in better products, better prices, better selection and a more extensive menu of available customer services.
