CHRISTIE’S LIGHTING GALLERY
While other showrooms in the area were cutting back or closing their doors for good, this enterprising showroom opened in 2008 and broke the million-dollar sales mark this past year. Much of that accomplishment can be attributed to owners Kristie and Robert Spino’s genuine passion for lighting, and the showroom’s unwavering focus on customer satisfaction.
“Our staff is not worried about selling the most expensive item, they just want to sell the right item per the customer’s needs,” the company’s entry statement explained.
At 5,000 square feet, Christie’s is the largest lighting showroom with the most substantial product selection in the area. Located in the Blue Ridge Mountains just south of Asheville, NC, the mid- to high-end showroom draws from a wide trade area. The experienced staff includes CLCs, which adds to the showroom’s reputation for sound lighting knowledge. Finding the right lighting solutions is not just a goal, but also a mandate at Christie’s Lighting Gallery.
Family owned and operated, the atmosphere at Christie’s is warm and friendly. “They make you feel like you matter and are always welcome,” a nomination form explained.
