Liquor Store Looks Like New After Upgrading Drop Ceiling Lights to LED

Simon Liquor in New Jersey has operated for years under lighting typical of suspended ceilings: fluorescent troffers that tended to dim, flicker, and buzz as ballasts and lamps reached end of life, which happened frequently. They also sported a variety of color temperatures—some bulbs warm, some cool—which often happens when lamps need to be replaced so often: when a lamp burns out, you're more focused on getting a quick replacement bulb than on matching the color temperature.

Looking to improve this situation, Susan, the owner of Simon Liquor, purchased eighteen of our 2x4 Magnetic Strip Kits to retrofit her fluorescent troffers to LED. Not only did she immediately fall in love with the new appearance of her store, but so did her customers.

"The LED lights are amazing," Susan told us. "So nice and bright, and no annoying buzzing like the old lights! It looks like a new store! Customers have commented on how nice the lights look, and they are all one even color throughout the store!! Thank you so much for a quality product."

Susan is going to be even happier when she notices that her store is saving roughly $795 a year by converting to LED lighting.

We recommended our 4ft Magnetic Strips to Susan because the high-quality magnetic backed LED Retrofit Kit makes converting existing 4-foot fluorescent fixtures quicker and easier than ever before. Simply connect your existing fixture to the driver instead of the old ballast, quick-connect the driver to the magnetic LED strips with the included cables, and you're done. This magnetic kit can also be attached to workbenches, trusses, file cabinets, or any metal surfaces.

Our 5000K Magnetic Strips were the best fit for Susan because of the cool-white tone that fills the store, making all her products clearly visible from their shelves. We also offer 4000K which is more of a natural warm tone for offices, classrooms, or any indoor settings.
