4 Lighting Store Success Stories [2022]

4 Lighting Store Success Stories [2022]
Start A Lighting Store

The lighting fixtures market will reach a CAGR of 5.4% over the next few years. The massive demand for modern lighting fixtures will fuel the market growth as consumers look to optimize power consumption and save more on utility bills.

Thus, starting an interior and exterior lighting fixtures store can be a profitable business venture. If you are passionate about supplying lighting fixtures, consider setting up a brick-and-mortar shop in your neighborhood.

If you already have an online store that is doing well, you can target the areas with a high demand for lighting fixtures and open a physical store there.

Here are some real life success stories of starting a lighting store:
