Lighting One, a St. Louis-based cooperative retail organization for lighting showrooms, recently announced that Chuckanut Lighting in Burlington, Wash., has joined the ranks of its showrooms.

Founded in 2004, Chuckanut Lighting is owned and operated by Brian Hegelson, Jodi Hewitson and Jean Brandland, who share more than 50 years of retail lighting experience ranging from delivery to sales to accounting.

Chuckanut's business consists mainly of contracting work and new home construction. Their recent decision to join Lighting One was based largely on their desire to attract more retail business and to take advantage of Lighting One's “Select” program benefits, says Lighting One.

Chuckanut joins over 150 Lighting One member-owned retail lighting stores throughout the United States. Founded in 1999 as Ilucio, Lighting One joined CCA Global Partners, one of the world's largest specialty home furnishings groups, in 2001.

Lighting One's combined purchasing provides members rebates on products as well as participation in national programs, plus marketing services, exclusive merchandise and education programs for managers and salespeople.
