Today marks the 6 year anniversary of Lighting Matters’ existence and we’re celebrating!
Starting out as an online store in a small one bedroom unit in South Yarra back in 2009, Lighting Matters has expanded considerably over this time to multiple online stores, and three showrooms across Victoria and New South Wales with the intent to become one of Australia’s largest retail lighting stores – selling ONLY LED lights.
Our daily orders began exploding as our online stores gained traction, and we knew in 2011 it was time to open our showroom – mainly because people wanted to see the lights before purchasing.
Our first week of opening was a whole lot of fun, the store itself very small and in need of some crazy renovations.
Our stock levels slowly growing but of course our brand and awareness still small.
The lovely green wall – sold to us as a feature was not the most beautiful thing we had in the store.
The opening of our NSW store saw LM really become a premium quality store.
And our original Victorian store got a major revamp in 2012.
Thanks again to our customers, suppliers, staff and mentors along the way who have helped create the Lighting Matters we all love today.
