Customers Stock Up on Christmas Lights at 1000Bulbs.com
It may seem a little early to be talking about Christmas, much less Christmas lights, but not for lighting retailer1000Bulbs.com. Companies, municipalities, and homeowners alike are all currently stocking up on Christmas lights. They are taking advantage of great pre-season pricing while securing the lights they need before they become difficult to find and match later in the year.
Buying Christmas lights early and in bulk is necessary to ensure they are consistent in color and quality. Although purchasing only one or two string lights at a time may seem more cost-efficient, there’s no guarantee the same lights will be available when they are needed closer to Christmas. Moreover, the performance and color characteristics of lights can vary not only between manufacturers, but also from generation to generation. While this is true for all lights, this is especially important for LED lights.
When manufacturers make LEDs, they typically sort the individual diodes into separate bins grouped by color and brightness. This is called binning. Because binning requirements can change between seasons, it’s easy to end up with mismatched LED string lights. But when all LEDs are purchased at the same time, the lights are more likely to be of the same caliber. Not to mention it’s less likely for consumers to purchase lights with the wrong bulb type, string length, or spacing if they order all their lights at once.
“Customers continue to shop with us every year because we have such a wide selection to choose from,” says 1000Bulbs.com CEO Kim Pedersen. “We expect Christmas this year to be bigger than it ever has been at 1000Bulbs.”
