If you grew up in Central New York, chances are you already know about Edward Joy Electric. After all, the company has been locally owned and operated since 1875! (To save you the math, that’s 144 years.) In 2015, Edward Joy was honored as CenterState CEO’s Economic Champion. So this post is aimed at those of you who, like me, were not born and raised here and have to find the local secrets for yourselves.
At Edward Joy, you will find higher quality lighting (and a much wider selection) than you do at one of the big home repair stores. Their showroom is enormous and has tons of options for all budgets and preferences. They have indoor and outdoor lighting (including ceiling fans) for all areas of the house, as well as commercial lighting.
We have updated several lighting fixtures in our home with items from Edward Joy, including a dining room chandelier and bathroom fixtures. This month, we needed to replace our outdoor lights because our son broke one with his basketball (oops!) and it was the perfect excuse to finally ditch the lights I have hated since we bought the house. While we were at it, we finally decided to update the ceiling fans in the kids’ bedrooms and our guest room. The choice seemed overwhelming at first because they have so many options, but with the help of Edward Joy’s staff, the decision was made much faster than I expected.
What’s also nice is that with Edward Joy you have the option to buy the light bulbs you need right then and there. They tell you exactly which bulbs they recommend and give you options for cheaper bulbs if they have them. The staff are all really knowledgeable about the products they sell. If they don’t know the answer to your question, they will find someone in the store who does. I have a great deal of confidence that they are giving me legitimate information and not just guessing. In addition, they guarantee to beat any advertised price.
As mentioned in a previous post, my favorite place for antique lighting or lighting repair would be Robbin’s Rarities in Manlius, but Edward Joy is definitely my go-to spot for modern lighting fixtures. They have ALL range of prices, so whether you’re looking for unique or luxury lighting, or if you want something functional that won’t break the bank, you will find it here.
Edward Joy is right off of the Teall Avenue exit of I-690 in Syracuse, so it’s very easy to reach. (Since I live closer to Syracuse, I have never visited the Johnson City location.) Hopefully nobody else has to rush out to replace a light broken by a basketball (or baseball or soccer ball…), but whatever type of lighting you’re seeking, Edward Joy will be able to help.
