SPOTLIGHT // St. Catharines // City Lightz
Winter 2019 // City Lightz is a bright spot for home lighting that puts the emphasis on customer service.
THE PLACE: Jim Karagiannis has a knack for brightening people’s lives. It’s a skill he’s honed over 25 years in the lighting business, and it shines through at City Lightz, his St. Catharines store offering 3,000 square feet of lighting fixtures to suit every style and budget. Jim, his wife Mary, and their dedicated staff ensure customers find the fixtures that will do more than simply shed light on their everyday lives. “Lighting is the jewelry of the room,” Jim says. “Most people take it for granted that it’s just lighting but it will make or break a room.” Helping people realize that is a favourite part of his job. “Most people coming in have no idea what they want. You’re taking information from them and helping to create what they need,” he explains.
