Professional Grade Lighting Tried and True in the Toughest of Climates

Located in Winnipeg, Manitoba, we experience some of the harshest winter weather in North America.   We started as a professional installation service in 2000 but made a lot of mistakes and had so many headaches when it came to store bought product.

We had a difficult time finding a good supplier who understood our needs.  The big things for us were:

1. Quality product.  We have to work with the same product year after year, and when the product fails it means service calls.  Service calls are a costly expense so you want to minimize or eliminate them.  Once we discovered product that professionals use, it was a game changer.  The jobs looked brighter and better, there were fewer service calls, and customers were much happier.

2. Professional products.  Professionals have worked with overseas factories to customize product so it is optimized for installation practices in this industry.  Therefore much of the product we sell on this site is not even available through local retailers.  Retailers are focused on selling directly to consumers, not to professional installers.

2.Quantities needed.  Driving from store to store at 9pm at night not finding the product we needed for a job booked the next day was a huge time waster and extremely frustrating.   A large tree may need 40, 50, or even 60 strings of lights.  Being able to just order in the product as we needed it, and in bulk style packaging (not cumbersome boxes) was a HUGE time saver.

We are pleased to introduce to you Lights Depot Canada, serving Canada and the US.  We are dedicated to bringing reliable, professional grade lighting products to fellow installers, event planners, institutional and commercial users, and do-it-yourselfers across the cold prairies and beyond. Service is friendly, fast and no-hassle.  All orders over $150 within Canada include shipping so your product cost is kept simple and upfront.
