Plumbing distributors charge into lighting market

The Stock Market (, a master distributor, claims to have America’s largest plumbing inventory.

In an advertisement in the February issue of SupplyHouse Times, the company’s ad says, “Now Stocking Lighting!”

According to the text, Progress Lighting is now a “premier manufacturer” for The Stock Market. As an introductory offer, The Stock Market will give $15 off any lighting order.

In Spokane, Washington, the local Ferguson store added 4,000 square-feet to its showroom, “enabling Ferguson to roll out a selection of lighting fixtures, including chandeliers and sconces,” the Journal of Business reported last month.

Ferguson, a unit of Wolseley, has roughly 1,300 locations.
