Hinkley plans its grand opening

DALLAS–Hinkley Lighting is redesigning its showroom here, and the unveiling in January will coincide with the company’s 90th anniversary year.

The renovation plans incorporate innovative visual merchandising concepts, including distinctly designed category sections for chandelier, bath and outdoor, a “jaw-dropping” entrance, working vignettes that bring the product to life, and a state-of the-art Fredrick Ramond boutique, the company said.

The grand opening of the new showroom coincides with Hinkley’s 90th anniversary and a nomination as a finalist for the 23rd Annual ARTS Awards. “We’re proud of our heritage and excited about our future,” said Rick Wiedemer, president. “The new showroom demonstrates our commitment to our customers that, despite the challenging economy and evolving retail environment, we continue to maintain the highest standards and lead by example. To have this innovative new showroom correspond with such an impressive milestone in our history is very exciting.”

A grand opening party is planned for Friday, Jan. 20, kicking off at 5 p.m. with a live concert featuring the Dallas band, Identity Theft, and prizes.
