PAGAZZI Lighting was founded in 1980 by Laura Pagan.
Our first store was located in West George Street in Glasgow. It quickly became established as the city’s premier specialist lighting shop, attracting the great, the good and the famous for many years.
From West George Street we moved to a store in Sauchiehall Street. The extra space gave us the space to present a much bigger range of lighting and be more adventurous in our choice of product.
Since then, we have undergone many changes, and have learned a great deal about running a fast-growing retail lighting business leading to a decision to open the following new businesses:
- 2002 - Lighting Superstores located in high profile retail parks
- 2009 - Smaller Stores located in Factory Outlet Centres
- 2011 - Transactional Website
As a consequence of these decisions, we have since opened the following stores:
- 2002 - Uddingston Lighting Superstore
- 2003 - Aberdeen Lighting Superstore
- 2004 - Livingston Factory Outlet Store
- 2005 - Glasgow Lighting Superstore
- 2008 - Sterling Furniture - Tillicoultry
- 2009 - Boundary Mill - Colne
- 2009 - Boundary Mill - Newcastle
- 2010 - Junction 32 Factory Outlet Store - Leeds
- 2011 - Doncaster Factory Outlet Store
- 2011 - Dalton Park Factory Outlet Store - Co Durham
- 2011 - PAGAZZI.COM
- 2012 - Boundry Mill - Sheffield
- 2014 - Perth Lighting Superstore
- 2015 - Boundry Mill - Walsall
- 2016 - Bolton Lighting Superstore
- 2017 - Warrington Lighting Superstore
During 2005 we introduced a large range of mirrors and artwork into our stores. These products have proved to very successful with customers and we are now one of the largest independent mirrors and artwork retailers in the UK.
In February 2006 we received a significant financial injection from Ashleybank Investments (ABI), a venture capital company with a special interest in fast-track retail companies; they were also early investors in companies such as Schuh and Dobbies Garden Centres. ABI were also partnered in the investment by the Scottish Enterprise's Co-Investment Fund.
In addition to finance, PAGAZZI Lighting also benefits from the significant hands-on retailing knowledge that remains within ABI and the experience that they have of building the Edinburgh Woollen Mill business into a UK wide retail chain.
Pagazzi Lighting is UK’s biggest independent lighting retailer - something that we could not have achieved without providing excellent customer service. Our success is based on not only a stunning choice of lights,but also on friendly, expert advice.
We know lighting through and through, our knowledge and expertise are second to none, and our abilities extend to offering exceptional value for money on high quality lights, whether they cost £5 or £1500.

With seventeen stores and an online store, our prices are ultra-competitive, thanks to our massive purchasing power.
We want every customer to feel welcome. So when you walk into a Pagazzi Lighting store, you open the door to a world of inspiration in lighting, like you’ve never seen.
Huge In-Store Range
Our retail park stores have circa 3,000 individual decorative lighting products on display and our factory outlet stores have circa 1,000. We believe this is the largest in-store range available in the UK.
The range covers all major decorative lighting styles – Modern, Traditional and Contemporary – and types – ceiling, table, floor, wall, spots and bathroom.
Take It Away Today
Besides having a huge range of decorative lighting on display, we also have a large warehouse in each store. With thousands of lighting products available in stock, you should be able to take 95% of your purchases away with you on the day of your visit.
As the largest specialist lighting retailer in the UK, we can negotiate extremely competitive pricing from our suppliers, and we can make sure that our customers benefit, by passing on the outstanding value to them. Not content with that, we also operate a policy of regularly offering truly exceptional deals whenever we possibly can, such as when we make scoop purchases ourselves, or when we must make room for incoming stock – check out our Promotional Products and judge for yourself.
At up to 80% off, these extraordinary deals are not repeatable. When they are gone, they are gone forever and we recommend you catch them while you can. Promotional Products may be end-of-line designs, special purchases or simply the Pagazzi Showroom Manager creating space for new season ranges. The quality is top class, the value’s even better and these pieces just have to go!
If for any reason we are unable to satisfy your requirements from our vast in-store range, we will be pleased to order goods especially for you from our supplier catalogues.
Delivery times will vary on a product by product and supplier by supplier basis, however, the normal delivery timescale is usually within 2 to 4 weeks.
Given that catalogue orders are not normal stock-items, unfortunately our normal Refund Policy does not apply to customer orders. For full details, please see our Terms & Conditions.
Our appreciation of all that lighting can do to enhance a room, a house, a home and even whole buildings, helps us give you unrivalled professional insights into interiors and the crucial finishing touches, looks, colours and textures that make the difference. So we’ve taken our know-how and extended it, ‘til now you can discover a fabulous choice of beautiful mirrors, art, rugs and furniture in many of our stores.
