The history of the Lighting Center locations "at Rockingham Electric" begins when the first dedicated Lighting Center opened in 1970 in Newington, NH. It was a 3,200 square-foot retail lighting showroom added alongside Rockingham Electrical Supply to accommodate the expanding homeowner trade.
By the late 1980's, the lighting showroom space had increased to 8,500 square-feet in Newington, becoming a popular stop for lighting, lighting accessories and interior decorative items as well.
Claremont, NH eventually also had its own dedicated Lighting Center alongside the Claremont Electrical Supply branch.
Both: the Newington, NH and Claremont, NH lighting locations attract architects, general interior designers and specialized lighting designers, as well as homeowners and contractors who appreciate the huge selection of lighting products, and in-house design services.
