In your lighting showroom, you have an array of fixtures available for every residential and commercial need. Homeowners, contractors, and designers come to you for the specific lighting projects, and nine times out of 10, you’re able to supply exactly what they need on their first visit. However, what about that one time when you’re not able to find the perfect fixture or lighting solution? At Lighting One, we want our co-op showrooms to be able to offer an array of lighting brands that cover a variety of needs. As a member, you’ll be able to expand the brands that you carry, and not have to worry about missing out on a sale opportunity.
Leverage Key Relationships
As a Lighting One member, you’ll be able to take advantage of the key relationships that we’ve built with a number of leading brands and suppliers. You may own a small showroom in a small town, and your independent business model doesn’t allow you to partner with top brands due to product and freight prices. By becoming a co-op member, you can enjoy competitive pricing on all the fixtures you bring into your store and not have to worry about drastically increasing your operating costs. If there’s a brand you want to carry, but are unsure how to contact the supplier, we’ll help any way we can.
A Greater Selection
One of the greatest (and most obvious) benefits of expanding the number of brands you carry is that you’ll be able to offer customers a better selection. They may be searching for a specific light fixture that’s made by a specific brand, and if your store doesn’t have it, they’ll have no problem going down the road to another showroom. They may be looking for retrofits or a certain style that’s only manufactured by one brand, and by adding that brand to your store, you can increase your chances of closing a sale. We work with a number of leading brands, and are always looking to add more.
Quality and Quantity
Homeowners and contractors who are building new houses and businesses want the best quality lights for their projects. By adding top brands, you can ensure that the lights they purchase will be easy to mount, install, and operate. They may also need a large quantity of lights, especially for large commercial products, and you can work with the supplier to secure a bulk order of high-quality lighting. Co-op members not only enjoy competitive pricing, but can also receive rebates on purchases from Lighting One suppliers.
If the brand selection in your local store is limited, contact us today to discuss the benefits of becoming a member. Our cooperative model is designed to help owners retain their independence while increasing their profitability. You don’t have to change your business in order to connect with new brands and other showrooms, and remain competitive in your local market.
