Sopris Lighting offers bright ideas

Sopris Lighting’s new location, off the West Glenwood exit on Midland Avenue across from the RFTA bus barn, has 2,000 square feet of unique options for those people who don’t want to accept the ordinary in lighting designs.Owners Brian and Donna Harris moved to the new location Dec. 1. “It’s exciting; it’s a brand new building,” said Donna Harris. “It’s going to be really nice with the exceptional lighting lines we are carrying.”She continued, “The reason we moved is to be in the traffic flow of the Glenwood Meadows Shopping Center, and once it opens up, Glenwood will be the shopping hub of the area, and customers will come from Eagle, Pitkin and Garfield counties. It’s going to be a happenin’ place.”To keep up to date on the most recent lighting trends, staff members attend the Dallas Lighting Show. Color is important in new lighting design, incorporated into fixtures and rail systems.Besides offering its unique lighting designs, Sopris Lighting features quality customer service, knowledgeable staff, and a comfortable, pleasing atmosphere.Business name: Sopris LightingOwners: Brian and Donna HarrisAddress: 100 Midland Ave. #220, Glenwood Springs 81601Open hours: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday; 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday.
