ATG Stores launched its first website - LightingUniverse.com - in 1999 as part of a business plan intended to help people quickly source lighting product for residential and commercial use. Today, that philosophy has helped us grow into a company with a selection of millions of items from more than 3,000 name-brand manufacturers that specialize in home improvement products and fine home furnishings. ATG Stores has been a member of the Lowe's family since 2011. Now, ATG Stores operates in the U.S. and Canada from its headquarters in Kirkland, WA, with a staff of nearly 250 employees.
At its core, ATG Stores is a result of customer loyalty. Our growth was made possible not by investors, but through an ever-growing customer base that reflects our commitment to high-quality service and selection. Our selection is unique in online retail and includes some of the biggest collections of lighting, furniture, hardware, décor, tools and appliances found anywhere on the Internet. But, the selection is only half of the equation ... The other half is made up of our highly trained customer service and sales departments; the many faces behind our products that make ATG Stores such a successful online retailer. Our weekly training seminars and advanced IT systems keep them razor sharp so that our customers get the best service and products available.
