Currently, Beacon Lighting has 85 Company operated stores and 11 franchised stores.
Beacon Lighting's stores operate profitably under a variety of sizes currently ranging from approximately 300m2 to 1200m2. The average store size is 738m2.
All stores are leased and located in high traffic homemaker centres or prominent free standing sites with complementary retailers nearby. Population base and geographic catchment area for each store varies.
The commercial sales offices are located in Melbourne, Brisbane, Sydney, Perth and Townsville.
The store network is supported with a store support centre based in Mulgrave, Victoria and a warehouse and office complex at Derrimut, Victoria.
To maintain the store rollout program the Company relies on its property division to identify suitable regions for new store locations. Through analysis, the most suitable sites are identified and commercial terms negotiated. Beacon Lighting is a sought after brand and tenant. Lease terms of approximately seven years with further seven year options are negotiated. Options are typically exercised providing long term tenure.
Integral to the successful day to day and long term management of the national store network is the store operations division. Headed by the Managing Director - Retail, this consists of sales managers responsible for stores over five regions.
