Success Story: The D'Agostino's Transformation

In the heart of Larchmont, New York in Westchester County stands D'Agostino's Clothiers—a beacon of elegance and custom tailoring. This family-owned gem, nestled in its prime location since 1982, has been the go-to destination for customers looking for unparalleled clothing and tailoring services. Yet, beneath its rich legacy, D'Agostino's faced a challenge common to many longstanding businesses: the need to modernize while preserving its cherished heritage.

The Challenge: Outdated Lighting Dimming the Experience

For years, D'Agostino's operated under the dull, unflattering glow of fluorescent lighting. This antiquated lighting solution detracted from the vibrant fabrics and exquisite craftsmanship, negatively impacting the shopping experience.

Customers typically sought natural light from the storefront windows to view the actual colors and details of their potential purchases. The fluorescents' harsh, yellow brightness didn't match D'Agostino's food or atmosphere.

The UtilityGenius Solution: A Brighter Future

Turning to contractor JC Electric and UtilityGenius’ ConEd Storefront, D'Agostino's embarked on a near-complete retrofit, choosing modern lighting that transformed the shopping experience. This update not only illuminated the store's unique offerings in a new light but also enhanced both customer and employee satisfaction.

The update was strategic to increase energy efficiency and customer comfort. The renovation included a careful selection of contemporary LED lighting systems to revitalize the store's interior.

Beyond Aesthetics: A Story of Joy and Satisfaction

Upgraded lighting had an immediate and dramatic effect. The new fixtures from the UtilityGenius storefront illuminated the room with brilliant, natural light. Better lighting made it easier for shoppers to perceive D'Agostino's clothing as intended.

The retrofit’s success was assessed not just in lumens and aesthetics, but also in the happiness it provided to the family owners and their clients. The proprietors of D'Agostino's, with a history built on quality and attention to detail, were overjoyed with the change. The new lighting not only improved the store's ambiance but also created a more comfortable working environment.

Customers found the upgraded lighting to be a more delightful shopping experience, allowing them to see the genuine spirit of D'Agostino's items in the greatest light—literally. The transition to modern, energy-efficient lighting proved that tradition and innovation could coexist, enriching the store's legacy.

D'Agostino's transition from antiquated fluorescents to contemporary, energy-efficient lighting demonstrates the potential of intelligent retrofitting. Their work with UtilityGenius not only improved their store's design and usefulness but also established a precedent for other conventional companies wanting to modernize. D'Agostino's, with its rich heritage and fresh ambiance, remains a beacon of quality, now shining brightly.

Cultivating Repeat Customers and Relationships

A Partnership for Progress

D'Agostino's choice to replace their lighting system was made possible by the experience of John Carpino at JC Electric known for his proficiency and thorough grasp of the special demands of local companies. This collaboration was founded on a common aim to improve the store's ambiance while preserving its historic beauty. The contractor's participation was critical in effortlessly integrating the modern lighting solutions from the UtilityGenius storefront into the fabric of D'Agostino's historic business.

The success of D'Agostino's sparked a beneficial collaboration between the local contractor and the UtilityGenius Commercial Storefront in ConEdison. This successful collaboration led to multiple orders through the UtilityGenius storefront, underscoring the platform's ease of use and the financial advantages of instant rebates.
