Bath and Hall Lighting

Selection in store was amazing and there were a variety of styles available. I think it took me over an hour to see all the fixtures and make my selection. There were also a variety of prices to fit every budget. I would have appreciated more help by the staff but they seemed busy with other customers at private tables, but I was able to ask the people at the front desk questions. I appreciated that the boxes were opened and all the light fixtures were checked for breaks, etc. I wouldn't have enjoyed driving back to make a return as I don't live near this store. The staff also offered to help carry my boxes out to my car and that was appreciated as well. Will definitely return due to the selection and variety of price points.

This place is extremely busy, but has great selection. Getting an appointment on a Saturday or after 6 on a weeknight is a must, but be sure to call well in advance to get an appointment as they book up very quickly. They have a great selection of drinks to enjoy to supplement your shopping experience, which is great for keeping husbands happy! I wasn't thrilled with the first customer service rep who helped me, but on subsequent visits found some great help.

Lights and Lamps

I have purchased three items at this store over the past year (floor lamp, hanging lights and bathroom lights) and each items was either defective, missing parts or damaged. Each time I have had to either return it or wait for replacement parts. I have found it exhausting and time consuming shopping at this store. Their service is mediocre at best - no one asks you if you want help or assistance. I won't shop here ever again as I've given them enough opportunity to determine that their business is not for me.

Lighting

I was pleased with the level of selection and service from Cartwright.
There was a large amout of lighting that was sale priced, this kept the costs lower and the quality higher. The sales rep was very helpful to us. I recomend this buisness.

Kitchen Lighting

They have great staff that are very helpful and knowledgable. Helped me to find exactly what I wanted. Only drawback is you always have to wait to be served. More customers than staff can serve quickly on weekends.

Lighting fixtures

Our builder works with Cartwright Lighting and we were instructed to make our light selections here.

The service we received was ok. Our consultant was helpful with our choices, but seemed hurried. Appointments are made so that we can have the undivided attention of a consultant, however, it seemed like she was working on 10 other projects at the same time and could not have us out of there soon enough.

Vanity lights for bathrooms

We went to Cartwright lighting based on a recommendation. When we arrived, we were happy to find out that they were having a sale. We chose 6 vanity lights of varying size and price. The service was good until we wanted to see the lights prior to purchasing them. They opened each box and checked them very quickly, then resealed them and commented that they were all fine.

We went home and noticed 2 fixtures had noticeable surface scratches and one glass globe was chipped. We brought them back only to get poor service. One was a discontinued item, so we were forced to go home with our original scratched item, because the only alternative was the damaged floor model. For the other one, we went through 2 boxes, all with slight flaws. Then the salesperson said she was only going to open one more box. Basically, even if it was damaged, she was not going to search for a proper one. She even went so far as to say, "well, it was on sale".

It was disappointing to get such poor service from a high end place like this. Even if an item is on sale, I expect to get it in perfect condition. I would not pay any amount for a light fixture that is damaged.

I would never shop there again.
