Why A Cooperative?
Independent, locally-owned businesses are hailed for offering reliable personalized service, products of exclusive design and exceptional quality, and a unique and pleasant shopping experience.
However, today’s competitive environment makes it tough for many small businesses to compete and thrive.
Aligning with a national cooperative allows independent retailers to connect to thousands of other locally-owned businesses, and unite in size and scale against the competition while keeping money spent local.
Plus, members can enjoy access to innovative products, systems, and services, giving independent lighting stores a competitive edge against big boxes and online sellers while allowing them to maintain their unique business spirit and identity.
Give your local business a national boost and retain your independence!
