From concept to grand opening, Cree® LED lighting proves to be a reliable solution that delivers on better visibility and energy/maintenance cost savings while adding comfort to the grocery shopping experience.
Originally founded in 1966, Buy-Low Foods is now the largest food wholesale distributor to independent grocers in Western Canada, servicing nearly 1,900 wholesale customers through its Associated Grocers and Van-Whole Produce divisions. With 35 corporate stores and 2 franchise stores, Buy-Low Foods also provides fresh produce, fine cuts of meats and national brand products directly to consumers. Although each of these stores are unique, they all share a common commitment to deliver quality products at low, low prices while providing a great customer experience.
While designing a new store build, and with a focus on value, Louie Pulice, Business Development Coordinator for Buy- Low Foods, began looking for lighting solutions to make the new Langdon, AB store as cost efficient as possible, without sacrificing the shopper experience. He worked with Electrical Designer Dan Melchior to develop a lighting plan that would meet Buy Low Foods lighting standards while lowering operation costs. Enter Cree.
