Retail stores and showrooms rely on visual appeal to build their brand identity to attract, engage and retain a loyal customer base. It is therefore essential that the lighting provides a high standard of aesthetic design that enhances the store, encourages return customers and optimises operations while being cost-effective.

As a shop owner, your priority will be to maximise sales by providing the best experience to your customers. LED lighting can help you achieve this with engaging and interesting shop window displays, aisle lighting that enhances your products and light schemes that guide your customers through the store and personalise the customer experience.

High Colour Rendering (CRI)

CRI is simply a scale varying from 0 to 100 that describes how accurately colours appear under a light. The higher the number the better.

Retail stores need to display their products, whether it’s food, clothes or jewellery, to the highest aesthetic standard and true to colour, so they require a high colour rendering index. LED lights that are above a 95 CRI are best suited to these environments.

Energy Savings

The design element of a shop or showroom is highly influenced by lighting and therefore needs to be one of your main considerations when choosing the right lighting. The other is your energy use – inefficient light sources can be a drain on resources, not only in energy use and cost but also maintenance.

LED lighting can substantially reduce your electricity use when replacing traditional lighting while providing the same level of output and maintaining this output over the lifetime of the lamp. The costs you save go straight to your bottom line making your store more profitable.

Reduced Maintenance

As LED lighting lasts much longer with no bulb replacements required, maintenance work is considerably reduced, which is ideal for retail stores with hard-to-access areas and busy shop periods.

It avoids disruption to the customers using the shop but also reduces the burden to maintenance teams making operations smoother and less costly.


Displays in retail stores can regularly change and what one display may require in terms of lighting may differ to another display.

LED lighting is extremely flexible and can be adjusted easily, especially with products such as LED track lighting and LED strip lighting, so that you can set your displays exactly as required.

Superior Quality

LED lighting is far superior in quality to traditional lighting – ideal for retail stores that require high aesthetic standards, whereas traditional lighting easily discolours when it deteriorates,

LED lighting output and colour temperature remains consistent over the lifetime of lamps, which ensures your lighting is always bright and consistent.

No Harmful Ultraviolet

Unlike conventional lighting, LED lights do not contain UV or mercury which makes them safer for use in your retail store – ideal for areas where food and drinks may be on display.

LED lighting also emits less heat than traditional lighting, creating a more pleasant and safe environment in your store.

Lighting Controls

Lighting controls can add to the visual appeal of your retail store and improve the customer experience with options such as dimming and colour changing, or you can enhance displays or changing rooms with personalised lighting controls.

The additional benefit of lighting controls is that the lights can be scheduled to be in use only when required, which further saves energy use, reducing your costs and carbon emissions.

“We had been planning the full refit of our lights for a couple of months and having chosen SaveMoneyCutCarbon the fitting team were with us for a couple of weeks before Christmas."

“They were able to come in after the school activities had finished in the afternoon. The Team were very amenable to working around any occupational restrictions we had with clubs and so on.They were a cheerful bunch and left the school tidy everyday with the furniture returned to its usual positions.There were a few changes to the fittings etc. that were noted during the fitting from the original survey and these were put in place without any problems."

Martin Blake, Business Manager at Nicholas Hawksmoor

“LEDs were the next logical step after our earlier lighting improvements but we could not at first secure the budget, given other pressing curriculum needs. However, we worked through the Diocese with SaveMoneyCutCarbon to take the opportunity to apply for Salix funding and the whole process went pretty smoothly."

"Overall, the standard of work from SaveMoneyCutCarbon was impressive. After SaveMoneyCutCarbon secured the interest-free loan, they moved very quickly to install the LED lighting, ensuring that the work was completed during the summer holidays, which was excellent. The early impressions of the new lighting are very positive, particularly in the library area and staff room. I’m sure we will see more benefits as the winter draws in.”

Anthony Murray, Head Teacher, St Bede’s

“The installation team was very professional and the managers responded positively to requests for changes as the project was delivered."

"There was a strong business case for choosing LED lighting and we’re looking forward to reduced costs over many years.The lighting is much improved, a lot brighter and clearly better quality, which I’m sure we’ll notice even more as winter draws in.”

Beverley O’Shea, Business Manager, Bishop Challoner School

LED lighting and lighting controls certainly ticks the boxes and is really is a sound investment that simplifies carbon reduction."

"Lighting controls in particular are a great asset as it is difficult to rapidly change people’s attitudes to switching off lighting."

John Tucker, Facilities Manager, Menzies Distribution
