ATG Stores launched its first website - LightingUniverse.com - in 1999 as part of a business plan intended to help people quickly source lighting products for residential and commercial use. Today, that philosophy has helped us grow into a company with a selection of some 3 million products from more than 3,000 name-brand manufacturers in 16 product categories that include Furniture, Plumbing, Hardware, Outdoor Living and Sporting Goods.
Now, ATG Stores operates in the U.S. and Canada from its headquarters in Kirkland, WA, with a staff of nearly 250 employees.
Service & Selection
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.
ATG Stores Pro Sales Network
ATG Stores continues to innovate and now contractors, designers, builders and other professionals are welcome to use our Pro Sales Network to plan and schedule projects, get quotes on bulk purchases and even share their portfolios to grow their networks and attract new customers. You can even have a sales representative assigned to help you find everything you need.
Not a pro? No problem. Our customer service team is available by phone, email and online chat 7 days a week. Contact us and we'll do everything we can to help you shop smart and save money on the products you need for your home and your life.
The Lowe's Connection
Our company's customer-driven growth is reflected in everything we do, from our diverse product offering and project management tools to the entrepreneurial culture our customers have supported from the beginning. They are who allowed ATG Stores to become a premier market leader in online sales of home furnishing products, and it was this market leadership that attracted the attention of Lowe's, Inc.
In 2011, Lowe's acquired ATG Stores as an independent, wholly owned subsidiary that continues to thrive as a stand-alone company - only now customers have access to our vast product selection at more than 1,700 Lowe's retail locations as well as on the Lowes.com website. Our message that "We've Got More" is an invitation to our customers to enjoy the same great customer service with the addition of a greatly expanded product selection and a unified customer experience across ATG Stores and Lowe's.
