Making Spaces Shine


Lighting One is a cooperative that is built on enhancing local lighting and home décor showrooms.

Windward Software is proud to partner with this leading independent buying cooperative that provides benefits, innovative programs, and support services to its Members.

Currently the largest independent cooperative and lighting specialty retailer in North America, Lighting One began in 2001 when the group joined CCA Global Partners. At the time, the cooperative had only 40 Member locations.

Since then the cooperative has grown to over 300 Member locations, each of which are able to leverage operational efficiencies that cannot be achieved by an individual store. This buying power provides local businesses with the ability to compete effectively with big box stores and online competitors, while maintaining their own identities and keeping dollars in their respective local communities.

When consumers shop local, they help small businesses do more business – and Lighting One is committed to the core fundamentals of what a cooperative is: supporting locally-owned lighting and home décor showrooms to operate more profitably in an increasingly competitive marketplace, while helping cooperative members retain independence.

This sustained success of local retailers ultimately results in greater consumer choice and satisfaction, as well as better, more personalized service: the opposite of what is typically experienced when shopping at Big Box retailers for lighting and home décor needs.

Lighting One Members receive a significant number of benefits, including, but not limited to:

  • Purchase Rebates
  • Reduced Freight Policies
  • Exclusive Product Offering
  • Marketing Support
  • Effective Training Programs
  • Networking
  • Industry Benchmarking
