Testimonial: Brenner's Furniture
When David Fendrich wanted to improve the look of his showroom at his furniture store, long-running classic Brenner's Furniture in downtown Eugene, he worked with his contractor to upgrade his old fluorescent tube lights to 4000k LED panels. Using EWEB's efficient lighting rebates, he was able to save over $1,000 on the upgrade.
"I was surprised at how affordable it was, and it's a night and day difference. I don't know why any retail store owner wouldn't do it. It makes your inventory look so much better, I considered it a no-brainer," said Fendrich, "I like them so much, I'm going to do the same upgrade in my warehouse."
While he wasn't able to directly tie an increase in sales, Fendrich said sales have been up significantly in the last year. His contractor helped him choose the right intensity for the height of his ceilings in each showroom to further optimize energy use, and he looks forward to long-lasting lights with the right color and brightness for his business.
