Raymar is one of those stores that once you're inside, you can't understand where all the space comes from (based on the outside). From the outside it just has a small storefront, but inside it is massive (2 floors stocked with all kinds of lights, lamps, etc.) and the selection is huge. I spent over an hour in there, just looking at everything... so much of their stuff is gorgeous and unique - I saw things there that are surely one-of-a-kind, and I could have spent a lot more money than I did, just because everything was so lovely. I ended up buying lamps for my living room and a chandellier for my dining room - the staff/owners were friendly and helpful, but not overbearing - I will definitely be back for future lighting needs.
As bad as my expeience was at one lighting center, my experience at Raymar was the complete opposite.
I needed to buy a "hurricane chimney" for our dining room lighting fixture. Our attempt at one store was a disaster (rude and totally unhelpful). However, at Raymar the people were more than obliging, they went out of their way to find the part I needed. Based on this experience I would have no hesitation in returning to buy any lamp or other lighting fixture.
Too often I have searched all over the area only to find the perfect lighting at Raymar. They are always prepared to help and when you have something specific in mind, they are excellent at going through catalogues to see if there is something more suitable than they have on display. Next time (which is coming soon), I think I will just make Raymar my first stop!!

I was pleasantly surprised with a recent trip to Raymar Lighting. They gave a great selection of floor lamps, chandeliers, and even night lights! The couple that own the store took the time to talk to me about what I wanted and needed, and helped me find exactly what I was looking for, at a reasonable price. They have recently expanded the store, as well, adding a 2nd floor as kind of a 'showroom' - very nice set up. Raymar is definitely worth a look if you're shopping for new lighting for your home.
