According to owner, Ed Bray, it all started in dad’s garage in 1968. Wholesaling General Electric bulbs to retailers, his dad would buy bulbs on consignment, and fill display racks at Lucky’s Supermarkets.

“My dad was always a man of his word. He went to the ends of the earth in the name of service. He serviced the heck out of the customer. If the business relationship ever got stormy, he was riding all the way through to make a stronger sustainable bond in the end.” – Ed Bray
