Design Resource Category: Lighting and Fans
The first Light Bulbs Unlimited store in Florida opened in Fort Lauderdale in 1987 and immediately became a bright point on the South Florida landscape. Many of the first visitors were motivated more by curiosity than need, and most were amused by the concept that anyone could make a living by just selling light bulbs. It did not take long however for people to appreciate what a valuable resource the store was to the community and just how seriously the staff at LBU took their logo “if we ain’t got it we’ll get it!”.
Over the years we have remained responsive to our customers’ needs and this has led to Light Bulbs Unlimited becoming more involved in the lighting fixture business. Our showrooms house an eclectic collection of modern and contemporary lighting fixtures and fans, elegantly displayed on custom-built ceiling clouds and wall panels. We have retained our unique identity as the ‘light bulb’ store by installing library ladders for access to a prominent floor-to-ceiling wall of binned light bulbs. And we will still do whatever it takes to find the light bulb you need!
Today the Light Bulbs Unlimited Lighting Showroom Group consists of eight established locations across South Florida, Orlando, Naples and the Treasure Coast. We gratefully acknowledge that our steady growth would not have been possible without the ongoing support of our loyal customer base in Florida and it is for this reason that we are committed to maintaining and improving the level of customer service throughout our organization. Our sales staff members are enrolled in our training program ‘LBU University’ and attend lighting shows and seminars to ensure that they stay on the cutting edge of new lighting technologies.
We actively promote energy efficient and Green products and we are proud to be the first to offer the new TRIO LED track light made by MSI SSL. For more information please visit www.msissl.com
