When I was looking for lighting for my kitchen remodel I looked at stores like Home Depot and Lowe's and online. I hadn't really found anything that I loved, so I decided to check some local stores. University Lights was the third independent retailer I went to and it was magical when I walked in! They have an amazing display of lighting with all sorts of colors, shapes, and styles. It was incredible! Someone came to help me right away and I happened to mention that I liked a certain fixture but wanted something more traditional in styling and the salesperson said the fixture came with different options and when she showed me the catalog I found the perfect lights! The lights were inexpensive, which was a really nice surprise. They have all price points and styles so definately give them a look.
Pros: selection, price, customer service
Cons: you might pass the service road entrance so watch for it
