PegasusLightingLogo143x66 The NEW Pegasus LightingIn case you haven’t heard, our new website launched yesterday morning!  We are extremely excited about the redesign.  To those of you who weighed in on the initial design templates a few months ago: We incorporated many features into the site based on your feedback.  To those of you who haven’t seen the templates at all: We would love to hear what you think now!

Here are just a few things you can expect to see from now on at Pegasus Lighting…

  • Improved Product Images. Check out our Xenon Thin Under Cabinet Task Lights to get an idea of just how detailed our new images are.  You can view up to 15 images for each product and you can even zoom, rotate and pivot many of the images.
  • A Sleeker Design. Our font is bigger, our pages are wider, and the overall look is cleaner – all in an effort to make the site more user-friendly.
  • Top Navigation Bar. We moved our navigation bar to a drop-down menu on the top of the site.
  • A Smoother Shopping Experience. Three new sections will appear while you are shopping: Related Items, You Might Also Like, and Recently Viewed Items.
  • Product Reviews. Every product page will feature a tab showing 1-5 star ratings and written reviews from other customers.

Let us know in the comments section: What do you think of the new site so far?

School Spread the Word: Our Commitment to Education & Safety ProgramBudget cuts across the country are leaving schools short on resources and overflowing on class sizes.

The latest survey from the American Association of School Administrators found that 57% of K-12 school leaders will delay needed technology purchases for the 2010-2011 school year.  Half of school leaders will also eliminate or delay instructional improvement programs.  62% of school leaders plan to increase class sizes next year.

The Associated Press recently reported that libraries are fading as administrators are forced to cut back on staff because of the school budget crisis.

In our effort to help even if only in some small way, we are offering a significant discount on exit signs for education institutions.  Public or private schools, colleges, and universities are eligible for the program, which will offer a free LED exit sign for every three signs purchased by an education institution.  It is our hope that the program will help schools make necessary safety updates and set themselves up to save money in the future through highly-efficient LED lighting.  Check out our recent blog post on the many cost-saving benefits of LED exit signs.

If you know anyone in an administrative position at a school, spread the word!  We want to offer this program to as many schools as possible.

*If you are eligible, make sure to call our toll-free number, 800.392.4818, to place your order for the discount.  This offer is not available for online orders.  To view the products available, visit our LED exit signs page.

Habitat for Humanity house in Durham NC Pegasus Lighting Helps Build Hope on Elizabeth StreetWe are excited to announce that our recent donation to Triangle Residential Options for Substance Abusers, Inc. (TROSA) is helping them complete their newest housing project in Durham, NC!

TROSA is a two-year, comprehensive residential substance abuse recovery program.  It is a non-profit organization, and provides all care, food, clothing, and housing to its 375 residents free of charge for the duration of the program.  Providing housing for 375 residents is certainly a challenge.  TROSA is currently undertaking a major expansion of its campus to fulfill needs.

We offered to provide recessed lighting for their project on Elizabeth Street in Durham, NC.  The house, which was originally built in the 1920’s, has been undergoing major renovations for the past two years.  After the refurbishments are finally complete, seventeen residents will live in the house.

We donated eighteen recessed shower trims and housings for the house’s four bathrooms, and the project is now expected to be complete within the next few weeks!

To find out more about the organization or to make a donation, visit the TROSA website.  To find out more about the Elizabeth Street project, check out our press release.
