Specialty lamps retailer to debut new format


It’s been a while since Lamps Plus Inc. opened a new store, since 2009 to be specific.

But that will change this summer, when the retailer opens a store at The Arboretum, an open-air marketplace in Austin, Texas. The location will be the nation’s largest lighting retailer’s 39th store and third in Texas.

Lamps Plus will debut a new format in Austin, one that showcases lighting fixtures in a more open space. The store set-up will also highlight the company’s continuing growth in home furnishings and accessories, showing how those products complement its renowned lighting fixtures.

“Since our store growth strategy is extremely selective and measured, we were looking for a vibrant city to include our highly successful retail store business and Austin fits our strict criteria,” said Terre Wellington, senior VP of store operations for Lamps Plus. “With two existing Texas stores and a successful e-commerce site at, we continue to add customers in the state. Our Austin store is important to expand our customer base throughout the Southwest.”
