2012 Showroom of the Year Finalists: Revenue Over $5 Million
May 21, 2012 - 10:23am
Presenting the finalists for the 3rd annual Showroom of the Year Awards, sponsored by Residential Lighting and the Dallas Market Center. Join us at the Dallas Intl. Lighting Market on June 21 as we announce the winners.


Still a quintessential family-owned retail business, Metro Lighting has grown from a small “pipe and wire” electrical contractor shop opened in 1967 to eight fully merchandised lighting and home accents showrooms, and nine electrical counters.

The largest lighting retailer in the state, the company dominates the St. Louis/Cape Girardeau market. Large, thoughtfully merchandised showrooms are a mix of beautiful lighting, home fashions and displays showcasing the latest home lighting and control technologies. 

Nick Frisella, grandson of one of the company’s founders, oversees efforts to keep Metro at the forefront of energy-efficient lighting. A 2010 recipient of Energy Star®’s Excellence in Retailing for Lighting Award, the company offers customers free energy audits and consultations. It has taken the lead on educating consumers about recycling, light bulb legislation and lighting alternatives. A large custom grid display shows examples of different LED illumination cast on two dozen identical small red vases.
