Gap to build new store in Miami

BY Staff Writer

Miami Beach, Fla. — Terranova Corp. has signed a lease with Gap, providing a temporary store for the retailer while it builds its new multi-story location on Lincoln Road in Miami.

Gap will open a new location just off Lincoln Road at 1669 Meridian Ave., two blocks away from Gap’s current location at 1001 Lincoln. The existing Gap will close by early 2013, when Gap will begin redeveloping the building into a two-level, 20,000-sq. ft. flagship store. During construction, Gap will stay open for business at the Meridian Avenue location.

Gap plans to demolish most of the 1001 Lincoln building and create a new store with a modern look but will preserve the building’s historic contribution to Lincoln Road’s architecture.

Walmart Canada retrofits overhead sales floor lighting to LEDs for an estimated 28% energy savings

BY Marianne Wilson

New York — Walmart Canada has retrofitted all of the overhead sales floor lighting at its supercenter in Brampton, Ontario, from conventional fluorescent lighting to high efficiency LED 4-ft. retrofit lamps. The retailer estimates the change could save approximately 283,000 kilo-watt hours (kWh) per year, which will results in a savings of up to $26,000 per year.

"We’re very proud to be the first large Canadian retailer to fully convert sales floor lighting to LED for general illumination requirements," said Ken Farrell, VP store development for Walmart Canada. "This latest project represents just one of many steps Walmart Canada is taking to make our stores less energy intensive."

Completed by Canadian EcoLight LED Systems Corp., the retrofit involved changing close to 6,000 lamps from traditional 25-watt fluorescent high efficiency lamps to 18-watt LED lights, allowing the retailer to reduce energy usage for store lighting by 28%, thereby reducing the strain on the energy grid.

In addition to the direct savings from switching to LED lamps, the retailer will also benefit from reduced costs for air conditioning requirements, relamping, reballasting and recycling, and an improved shopping environment.

"Unlike traditional fluorescent lights, LED lights emit less heat, which allows us to reduce our air condition use at the store during the spring and summer," Farrell said. "The new lights also provide a better shopping environment for our customers. Customers shopping at the Brampton North location will notice the store appears much brighter and with lighting that is closer to natural daylight, almost as if we’d installed skylights around the store."

The new light could quickly find a home, especially in the millions of homes who want to switch to high-efficiency lighting source. - Michael Courouleau

When choosing an online retailer, look for one that is a member of the Better Business Bureau and has a third party organization gathering ratings and testimonials about them. Another big difference can be, the latex offers extra spring effects but the other seems strong. tempurpedic pillows Tempur Pedic's mattress became very popular. It does mean you need to do your homework and arm yourself with a plan before choosing and purchasing your mattress.
