CELEBRATING OUR 30TH YEAR IN BUSINESS
Here’s a picture from our 30th birthday celebrations with the Deputy Mayor, Nikki Nelson-Smith.The family run, independent lighting retailer in Guildford is gearing up for a big celebration, their thirtieth birthday! This remarkable thirty years in business dates back to humble beginnings when The Lighting Centre’s Managing Director, Roger Gamlin, chose Guildford to set up business. ‘We are a small family run business and have been retailers of lighting to the trade and general public since our Guildford showroom opened in 1985. Our aim has always been to try and give our customers the option of choosing something different or unusual.’ ‘We have seen many changes in Guildford with many independent retailers closing due to tough economic times. We feel very fortunate to still be standing and are sure that the combination of our knowledgeable staff and excellent product range have been the key to our success!’ The specialist retailer, located on Woodbridge Road, offers a vast array of products for use in every type of room including kitchens and bathrooms, as well as an excellent range of exterior lighting, and become specialist importers of lighting from all around the globe, in particular from Italy and Germany. To keep up-to-date with latest trends and innovations the team regularly visit different lighting exhibitions in both the UK and Europe to make sure they are at the cutting edge including with the most up-to-date LED energy-saving systems. The retailer is a well-known destination shop for DIY enthusiasts, interior decorators and even foreign royalty! To help The Lighting Centre celebrate their milestone Nikki Nelson-Smith, the Deputy Mayor of Guildford, will be joining the staff and customers.
