Through energy efficient lighting upgrades, The Paint Shop got back over $800 in takeCHARGE rebates and improved the lighting in their showroom.

From humble beginnings in downtown St. John’s, The Paint Shop is now, four decades later, Atlantic Canada’s largest home decorating network and go-to retailer for finishing touches that personalize, polish and protect your home.

With so many colorful products to highlight, The Paint Shop knew they needed to make an upgrade and turned to takeCHARGE to help. Among other projects in 2018, The Paint Shop installed new LED lighting at their Bay Roberts retail location replacing their incandescent bulbs with new more efficient LED bulbs.

“The takeCHARGE Business Efficiency Program helped upgrade the look of our Bay Robert’s showroom for a fraction of the cost and provided great savings on our electricity bill” says Kerri Hodder, Marketing Manager. “Being a leading home decoration retailer, it made sense for The Paint Shop to enhance our lighting and showcase our wide range of products to their fullest. The upgraded lighting now allows our product colours to look their best and helps our customers make the right decision for their home,” adds Hodder.
