Why buy local? These days we’re often encouraged to buy locally or shop small businesses mainly when it comes to fresh seasonal produce and other market goods. But why does it matter when it comes to home lighting accessories or ceiling fans? Find out why at Westlake Village Lighting & Accessories. First let’s take a look at our Featured Item of the Month!

Read on to find out more about why Westlake Village Lighting & Accessories along with other local businesses are better suited to serve their customers and communities.
Better Quality Products & Services
Small businesses realize stiff competition exists with big-box retailers who can cheaply move mass quantities of products off their shelves. However, small businesses still retain an excellent competitive advantage thanks to the products and services they offer.
At WVLA we carry only high quality products from proven, reputable brand names and industry leaders. We thoroughly screen and research our products before they hit our showroom floor. That intimate knowledge of our inventory allows us to match the right product with the needs of our clients and their particular space.
Even before you explore our lighting and accessory options, we offer in-home consultation to learn more about you and your space to ensure that you are making the right purchase. Additionally, we offer detailed lighting fixture cleaning and maintenance which includes an overall safety inspection, especially recommended for chandeliers or other heavy ceiling mounts.
We can design lighting solutions for your landscape or outdoor space. Bring in your landscape design, or we can visit for a free on-site consultation. Being local affords us the knowledge of the area’s common architectures, styles, codes/ordinances and landscaping/terrain. WVLA will ensure our products are a flawless match for your lighting needs.
Superior Customer Care
As a family-run business, Westlake Village Lighting & Accessories has over 25 years of experience in the industry. Longtime residents of the local community, we look forward to getting to know our customers individually and building trusted professional relationships. This business is not just our day job; it is our passion, livelihood and we are enthusiastic about sharing our knowledge and expertise with our clients.
Supporting the Local Economy
Supporting the local economy is easy and more of the money you spend stays within the immediate economy. More jobs become available within the local economy with some fields potentially offering their employees better wages. Small businesses often require the help of local planners, designers, accountants, insurance agencies, etc. Dollars spent at the big retail chain do not go nearly as far for the community as would dollars spent with a small local business.
A small business may not be within your local economy but it’s still beneficial for everyone to shop small, independently-owned businesses. They help deliver and maintain the unique character, charm and essence of their home city or town. Small businesses help create local flavor – let’s encourage this diversity!
