First Choice Electric Supply in Newark has quickly established itself as a standout player in the lighting industry.

A mere year after its opening, the West Union Street business has been shortlisted as a finalist for the prestigious 2023 Lighting Showroom of the Year, a national accolade organized by Furniture & Lighting Décor Magazine.


Among thousands of contestants, First Choice was the singular New York-based showroom to achieve this honor. The magazine cites remarkable attention to customer needs and innovative service methods as distinguishing factors for finalists.

In celebration of their one-year milestone, First Choice is offering patrons a chance to win a 52” ceiling fan.

Multiple entries can be obtained by visiting the showroom, with additional entries available for purchases.

Furthermore, the company’s expansive inventory, which includes renowned brands like Hudson Valley and Hinkley Lighting, caters to a broad range of styles and budgets, both in-store and online.

Showroom Manager Kaitlyn Ruffalo recently emphasized the benefits of an in-person visit to the showroom. “We aren’t just a lighting showroom, we are a design partner,” she said. Catering to varying customer needs, the showroom offers personalized after-hour appointments, virtual consultations, and home visits to provide tailored lighting suggestions.

For those keen on exploring First Choice’s offerings, they can walk into the showroom from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on weekdays or schedule a more personalized session by contacting (315) 331-2785 or emailing [email protected].
