Best lamp store in San Antonio! 8/27/2011

The selection of lamps and shades here is excellent, but what really sets Compton's apart is the customer service. The manager and a younger sales woman both spent most of a morning helping me choose three lamps and then the perfect shades to suit each. They were polite, yet warm and friendly, and were extremely knowledgeable and helpful. I highly recommend Compton's! more

The ONLY decent store in S.A. that sells lamp shades! 12/5/2009

I remodeled my house a couple of yrs. ago and wanted to finally use some beautiful lamps my Mother left me from her times living in the Orient. However, they all needed new lamp shades. I looked all over San Antonio. Every store had the ""plain/jane"" or white/eggshell shades. Compton's had beautiful shades, finials, etc. The saleswomen were experts, polite and helpful. They made suggestions I had not thought of and I bought a piece of art for my dining room that is so special. This store is the ONLY one I will go to for shades. Pros: I finally found a store that helped me with a variety Cons: Location is too far for me or I would be in there more often more

Expensive merchandise 11/17/2009

The merchandise is terribly overpriced for the quality. Lamps are marked up 50%-70% over prices elsewhere. The lampshades are wrapped so you can't see what you are buying until you unwrap them at home. Then you find stains, poor quality fabric, and dark dirt smudges on the top of the shades. The shades look like used merchandise. This place is a disaster. Pros: wonderful helpful sales staff - friendly Cons: avoid the lampshades - they look like 2nd hand rejects more

How do they do it? 3/12/2008

On my first visit, I had to practically beg to be shown the proper-size lamp shade I needed to replace. $80 was the cheapest price--I got a new one just as nice for $2 at a thrift store. Nobody actually waited on me, said goodbye, thanks for coming in, nothing. Cons: Not customer friendly at all more

Quality and price 5/13/2006

Its the place which you would like to visit to get quality lamps at very reasonable price. The owner is very friendly and would help each and every customer to choose a perfect lamp that goes well with the room walls color and design. They in fact have very large collection and each item looks unique. One can really find a good lam at this place at affordable prices. more

Hard to Find Items 11/24/2005

I was looking for the perfect lamp for my bedroom. I'm attending college and working full-time so I do alot of reading in my bed at night. I looked everywhere and when I would find one I would like the price would be way too high. I stopped in Comptons one day and couldn't believe the great selection they had and all were very reasonably priced. Thier selection was different from anywhere that I had been and it didn't take me long to find the perfect lamp at a price that i could afford. They were very helpful with out addind preasure or being pushy. I like that in a sales person. Give them a look-see you will be happy that you stopped in! more

Experts on Putting Light on the Subject 11/15/2005

I found this place one day when I was out running errands and decided to go in and check it out cause I was in the market for some lamps for my new place! Man am i glad that I did! They had every kind of lighting thing you could imagine plus they do repairs on lamps. I bought a ceiling fan and a floor lamp both at very reasonable prices. I also came back and broght an old antique lamp that I had that needed some repair. They managed to fix it up like it was brand new and I was very pleased with that as I was very fond of that lamp. I hope you give them a look see you will be glad that you did! more
