    Lumber Liquidators Opens New Store In Santa Barbara Designed To Earn First LEED Certification For Company

    Jul 1, 2015

    TOANO, Va. – July 1, 2015 – Lumber Liquidators (NYSE: LL), the largest specialty retailer of hardwood flooring in North America, has added to its growing national footprint by opening a new store in Santa Barbara, Calif. The store was designed with environmentally responsible features to earn LEED For Retail certification – a first for the Company.


    The 7,400-sq.-ft. facility – located at 18 S. Milpas St. – includes a warehouse and an innovative, efficient 1,690-sq.-ft. showroom that offers an extensive assortment of flooring options, moldings, accessories and tools. A variety of floors are also installed so customers can walk on different flooring styles and species.


    The store, which is the Company’s 39th in California, showcases more than 400 flooring varieties, including solid hardwood, engineered hardwood, bamboo, cork, vinyl wood plank, and laminate sourced from North America and Europe. Shoppers can scan in-store QR codes, take home free flooring samples and consult with Lumber Liquidators flooring experts at every turn to assist with important flooring decisions.


    The store design was inspired by LEED For Retail, a green building certification program for retailers facilitated by the U.S. Green Building Council to promote sustainable building practices.


    The environmental impact of Lumber Liquidators’ Santa Barbara store will be mitigated through efficient building systems and components such as optimized lighting and HVAC systems, along with a high concentration of Energy Star rated equipment. Processes have also been implemented to limit water usage and its location was chosen to increase accessibility via public transportation.


    Tom Sullivan, Founder and acting Chief Executive Officer, commented: “We’re proud to offer homeowners in southern California a new, environmentally conscious destination for finding their perfect floor. Our expansive selection of flooring is matched with incredible prices and knowledgeable service.”
