A Bright Opportunity!
Living Lighting, Canada's largest chain of residential lighting stores, opened for business in 1968.
Today the company operates 29 successful franchise stores, and is eager to expand into additional markets. This presents exciting opportunities to potential franchisees, in an industry that continues to grow, year after year.
A Growing Market
Management believes new housing, residential real estate resales and renovation activity are primary determinants in the sales performance of the lighting industry. New housing activity generates not only immediate sales but long term customers, as many home owners will continue to re-decorate and upgrade their lighting over a period of years after moving into a new home.
Home owner surveys over the past few years indicate that on an annual basis, approximately 44% of homeowners are involved in home renovation projects. Special interest publications such as Home and Garden magazine have recently documented that residential lighting jumped to #1 in the home decor category, up from #8 in 1999. Lighting moved ahead of such items as home furnishings, wallpaper, and carpet. Recent results from Woman's Day magazine reader research indicated that more consumers intended to purchase lighting than any other major home improvement category.
New opportunities for Alberta! Dynamic Franchisee Support
Marketing is a critical area of our support services. Our current marketing programs include national print magazine advertising, newspaper advertising, major market radio advertising and more. In addition, the company provides high-quality, point-of-purchase and point-of-sale materials for ongoing promotions and advertising.
Living Lighting chain purchasing power is unparalleled in the residential lighting category. Volume discounts and monthly advertised specials are negotiated with key trade suppliers, importers and manufacturers. Exclusive merchandise and best deal products are becoming more important in a competitive market place.
Living Lighting stores look exciting, too. Every detail is planned in advance. Our locations stand out with clear signage and our windows let customers know that we sell quality lighting. A creative presentation pays off in sales. Every home, apartment and cottage requires lighting products. New homes, renovations and redecorating projects all result in a need; whether it's new lamps for a living room, a chandelier for the dining room, task lighting for the kitchen or lighting to enhance a home's exterior and landscape. Lighting completes the setting and provides the magic to create the right mood.
Living Lighting presents every product you would expect to find in a specialty lighting store such as lamps, chandeliers, outdoor fixtures, ceiling fans, track lighting, recessed lighting, shades, light bulbs and a wide range of decorative accessories. If it's lighting related, we've got it. Emphasis is placed on unique, well designed, lighting and decorative accessories, which appeal to Canadians in the middle to upper income groups.
