open-software platform and works with a broad
ecosystem of digital partners that are leveraging
sensor data to build new retail applications.
"Those apps could help with real-time tasks
like inventory planning, refrigeration temperature
monitoring, indoor positioning and wayfinding, and
other valuable improvements," she suggests.
"We see a future where supermarket executives
from facilities management, sustainability, marketing, merchandising, loss prevention and supply
chain will all leverage the power of digital lighting
infrastructure to drive business," Traflet says.

Growing Demand
Barry Kugel, president of Farmingdale, N.Y.based LaMar Lighting Co., says, "We're seeing
grocers change over to LED fixtures to not just
reduce wattage and lower energy costs, but also
enhance their lighting's lumen output to better
light up their aisles and shelves."
Products need to look good and all the shelves
need to be well lit for customers to see clearly, so high
output and good color are very important, Kugel notes.
"There has been a strong demand for our LED
products," he says. "Our products have widths that range
between 2.5 and 12 inches and lengths between 2 and 8
feet. I believe their popularity is due to the fact that they
provide uniform lighting and aesthetic appeal."
Kugel sees LED technology improvements
leading to further energy savings, better lumen
output with improved Kelvin color temperatures
for enhanced visibility, and more streamlined
fixtures that look good, install quickly and
spread light effectively.
By Design
From a designer's perspective, Tom Henken, VP and
director of design at api(+), in Tampa, Fla., observes:
"The widespread use of LED technology has allowed designers the flexibility to integrate lighting
throughout any component of supermarket architecture. Because of the compact size and wide range of

fixture types, lighting can
be incorporated in areas
that were a difficult fit for
traditional light fixtures."
There's a wider range
of color temperatures
available in LED lighting, Henken says, allowing designers to fine-tune
areas of the store for
contrast or emphasis.
"While the upfront
cost of LED lighting is
often higher," Henken
says, "the cost of operation
is significantly lower and,
with its popularity, costs are coming down."
New government energy codes are aggressively
more stringent, which further contibutes to the
popularity of LED lighting, he adds.
Organic Garage, which recently opened a
15,000-square-foot flagship grocery store in
Toronto's Junction neighborhood, the chain's third
location, has made creative use of LED lighting, in
collaboration with api(+).
"The lighting plan there is rooted in discussions
with Organic Garage President Matt Lurie about his
vision for the atmosphere and lighting in his two other
stores," says Judy Nortin, api(+)'s designer, studio director and associate. "The store has an urban, city-street
theme, and lighting is tied tightly to the design."
She notes that in fresh food areas, LED lighting
is on an adjustable track, and in the center store,
direct/indirect LED was used, all with exposed
conduit and j-boxes.
Displays are highlighted with custom oil-barrel
light fixtures, Nortin adds, and the frozen food department incorporates safety lights mimicking the
kind often found under scaffolding in city streets.
"To add to the ambience and create fluidity from
inside to outside, we used gooseneck warehouse
lighting in both the courtyard and interior to highlight signage and artwork," she notes.
Henken says: "It's not new news, but LED lighting is far more efficient than the ordinary incandescent that's been around since Edison. It represents
a leap in energy savings and bulb longevity. Bulbs
often exceed 50,000 hours before burnout."
In a typical supermarket, he points out, lighting
and refrigeration account for 44 percent to 77 percent
of total energy use, and "it makes sense to invest in
LED technology when you see that a 60-watt incandescent bulb can be replaced with an LED of 8 to 12
watts and provide the same light output."
After all, as Henken sums up, "With supermarket profit margins so thin, this is one of the biggest
saving programs a grocer can implement to directly
affect the bottom line." PG
