Denney Electric Supply completes renovation on lighting showroom
● By Steven Hoffman
Denney Electric Supply unveiled the newly renovated lighting showroom in its Kennett Square store during an Oct. 6 event that included an open house and a ribbon-cutting ceremony. The renovation project, which included refurbishing the interior of the store on West State Street, expanded the lighting and fixture offerings as customers are looking for more innovative lighting solutions.
“We wanted to bring in more up-to-date fixtures for homeowners in the area,” said Scott Fenton, the regional showroom manager, who explained that an expanded inventory will help meet the growing needs of the area. Fenton said that LED lighting and contemporary-looking fixtures that have a very clean look are the latest trends in the residential and commercial lighting industry. Consumers are always looking for better and more energy-efficient products.
Denney Electrical Supply is a family-owned business that has always been a leader in the electrical industry, and the renovation of the Kennett Square store will help continue that. Steve and Brenda Thornton, the owners of Denney Electric Supply, were very pleased with the results of the renovation project. Brenda Thornton’s grandfather, Benjamin Denney, established the business in 1938. Blake Thornton, part of the next generation to enter the family business, explained that Denney Electrical Supply is always working to evolve and expand their capabilities as new technology is introduced.
Denney Electric Supply has eight locations throughout Pennsylvania, making it one of the largest independently owned lighting showroom in the Chester County area.
