Lighting in retail applications must entice people to enter a store and direct attention to the merchandise. Ideally it should also use energy efficiently and avoid damaging the merchandise with excessive heat. This Snapshot shows how one retail store--an upscale chocolate shop--has balanced the need to attract attention with the need for energy-efficient lighting. Light from soffits and bright paint colors make the walls look cheerful, trackheads add sparkle to merchandise packaging, and parabolic troffers provide general lighting throughout the store.
