Only good thing is selection. Prices even on sale were more than other bricks and mortar stores and online the same items are much less expensive.

They charge a hefty install price too on top of everything & good luck getting an install in anything less than about two months (won't tell you this when you order)! They even charge for every light bulb!

Definitely a mistake to go with Cartwright unless you don't care about value & just want to save time - their selection is good!

Company Response

I am sorry to hear that your experience was negative in any way. It is nice to hear constructive criticism and I hope to address a few of your issues.

Please note that in the future if you find the same light fixture at another store or online that is less expensive, we would be happy to review the quote and see if we can adjust our pricing to accommodate you, that goes for installation as well.

As for light bulbs, the reason we charge for them is because the customer has the option to choose what type of light bulb they want in their fixture; incandescent, halogen, fluorescent or LED, therefore we do not include them with the fixture.

I hope that this addresses your issues and that we would see you again in our store sometime soon.

Have a great day Jar!

kitchen

They informed me 30 days after I purchased the fixtures that the they were out of stock.. so pick another fixture and wait another 6-8 weeks...maybe

disorganized and way over priced

example:Aladdin Light Lift ALL200 - Standard Mount 200 sells for $1570.14 on their website

You can buy in online for $604.00 delivered for $800.00 USD

Google it if you have any doubts

bottom line: service, product and price is what makes any company successful they failed on all three!

save your time and money look elsewhere

purchased lighting for new home

When our home was destroyed by fire, we had to rebuild which was very expensive and many of the items were not covered by insurance. The finishing touches are very important so I was searching for nice feature lighting, ie, chandeliers and hallway fixtures at a good price. I looked at many stores and when I went to Cartwright, they had so many excellent sales on really nice chandeliers. I couldn't believe the value. Some were listed over $1000 retail suggested price and I bought them for around $100 each. Of course, these were clearance prices and some were one of a kind floor models, but they still look really nice in my home and I saved several thousands of dollars. You also have to sometimes make a couple of trips to see what is on sale but it was really worth it.

I am sorry to hear about the fire at your home, but very glad to hear that we could help you regenerate a new home and that you were able to take advantage of some of our great deals! On average we put up 5-10 new fixture a day, so there is always something new to check out!

New lights for renovation

I was very happy with Cartwright Lighting after having a bad experience with Home Depot. I had bought new lights from Home Depot and when my contractor went to install them, three sets did not work! I was nonsense to box them back up and return them to the store which cost me extra time for the contractor. Cartwright however was excellent when I went to the store for new lights. The designs were much more pleasant that what Home Depot had plus they opened the boxes and made sure the lights worked and that everything was in the box. I will not use another store for lighting again. Worth a visit as their stock and customer service is a pleasure.

Lights for bathroom

We went to the showroom to look for a bathroom light. it was amazing what a showroom. We had help from a wonderful lady who knew her stuff. She helped us pick a wonderful bath light that would fit the space perfectly. It had to be back ordered and we paid a deposit, then waited for them to call us about it being in. Since they didn't call we called them, and it was in the shop. I'm not sure how long it had been sitting there, but they said it would be a month and we called on the month date, so it was there on time as promised. The light and all the attachements required were in the box.

Lights

When we built our new home we were provided an allowance for lighting at Cartwright. We were very happy that we were able to light our entire home within the budgeted amount without having to compromise on the lights that we wanted. Very affordable and great style.

mmm... I have two comments, customer services and delivery...
Customer Services: great services, a lot of options and nice product, not complaint about it
now, delivery: awful, I got my home done in December but I got the light feature for the half bathroom and main bathroom 6 months after (June), I am not sure who was the responsible (builder or supplier) for the delay but the first time (around March), the brought the wrong light 2 features with 3 light instead of 3 features with 2 lights each.

Office Lights

Had a product we loved. We needed to install it right away as we were opening our doors the next day. They took down our light fixture right away and we love it! Thank you for your quick and helpful service.
