Staying on the cutting edge of technology is one way Heinen’s Grocery Store creates an experience that keeps shoppers coming back, and lighting is essential to this equation—minus the time and cost of replacing lamps. When the Northeast Ohio grocer went looking for lighting that could last, it found an ally in GE—and an answer in LED—that together keep the ladders and lifts tucked away.
With a mission to support the environment and minimize energy use, it is only natural for Natural Grocers by Vitamin Cottage to incorporate all-LED lighting in its distribution center and new grocery stores.
When Monroe Lee, owner of KIA AutoSport, began design on a new KIA dealership in Columbus, Ga., he decided to investigate lighting solutions that delivered bright, high-quality light while helping to reduce energy consumption in one of the facility’s key areas: dealer lots.
GE Lighting is working with China Resources Vanguard to provide its supermarkets with new energy-efficient lighting solutions. More than 25 Vanguard supermarkets have made the switch to GE’s Tetra® LED signage lighting systems, while several others are upgrading indoors as well with GE’s T5 Watt-Miser™ linear fluorescent lamps and ConstantColor® CMH® lamps.
Beginning with its first store in 1936, Stater Bros. (San Bernardino, Calif.) has a long history of doing right by its customers. It also has a long history of doing right by the environment. To deepen its commitment to reducing energy usage, Stater Bros. retrofit the frozen-food cases in nearly all of its 166 stores with GE’s LED refrigerated display lighting.
Since its founding four decades ago by three sisters and families who dreamed of honoring their mother and her collections, the Leigh Yawkey Woodson Art Museum in Wausau, Wisconsin, has been committed to enhancing lives through art and educational programs.
At The Fresh Market, shoppers can catch not only a delectable aroma but also the hint of classical music in the air. When the specialty grocery retailer decided to test updated indoor lighting at its new stores—to be followed by updated lighting at some existing stores—it wanted an energy-saving LED replacement lamp with a high color rendering index (CRI) and long life.
