Harold’s Lighting has been providing quality lighting services for the people of the Greater Seattle area for 60 years! Our dedication to customer satisfaction and customer service is what sets us apart from other lighting stores and lighting repair shops.

He went up and down the West Coast selling his products and eventually learned he could make a living by opening up a shop in Seattle.
