Begins Serving the UK with Lighting Products

Share Article, a leading lighting e-commerce site for home lighting products, is expanding its distribution from its traditional market, the US and Canada, to begin offering lighting products to England, Scotland, and Ireland.

Rosemary Wickowski, the CEO of Light Styles Internet LLC, commented that "The website,, is one of the top lighting destinations on the web making Light Styles a premier distributor for home lighting products nationally." She said, " We have had an increasing level of interest from international buyers in the past year and currency exchange rates have made it possible for us to compete successfully for large international jobs. We have been able to sell high end products directly to Europe and we plan to expand our support for those upscale markets".

Anita Turner, customer care lead said, "Over the years we have handled quite a few international orders so we have developed the expertise to deal with the problems posed by such things as customs, duties, taxes, and so on. The kind of complications that keep most US based home product retailers from serving the international market." She said, "I wouldn't call it a boutique business because the projects tend to be fairly large but it is a market segment that requires special expertise. We work with the manufacturers to make certain that the products are configured for the proper electrical systems, for example, just one of the issues we face. We also do extensive inspections, packaging, and crating so that we don't get products half way around the world with problems."

Wickowski said, "The move to advertise our products in the UK allows us to leverage some unique skills and experience we have developed in dealing with large or complex projects and builds on the experience we have supporting large domestic projects."

Wickowski said "The foundation of our business is customer care. We offer good value in our pricing, but attention to detail, meeting the customer needs, and working hard to anticipate and prevent problems is really what we are about. Value is the combination of quality products, fair pricing, and best in class customer care. Those are the things we work on all the time." She commented that "There have been large numbers of websites that have begun offering lighting products since the economic crisis hit us all. Many approach the market with the idea that all you have to do is have the lowest price. We have found that our focus on the entire customer experience brings us loyal repeat customers and great word of mouth support which allows us to remain one of the top 5 lighting retailers despite greatly increased competition and a difficult housing market."
