Her prices have always been extremely fair. Lori has always offered to meet or beat the competition.
In todays market, that's extremely important when just a few dollars can mean getting the job or not.
Use Lori and her company at every chance you get. Also, if it's a bid situation let her know, she will treat you right!”

A quotation from Your Church Magazine - November/December 2008
Bulb Basics: Get the most out of your lighting system with the right lamps. by Kent Morris
"This business is about service and technology comprehension," says Lori Mehrkens, national sales manager, ALL BULBS .......
"If I don't deliver, the church suffers. There is no greater incentive for all of us to perform above expectation, which is why we have such a highly satisfied customer base. I do not sell any lamp or fixture I would not use in application myself. Quality over cost.
When you have to change a lamp 30 feet in the air, you don't want to do this every few weeks. Hence, buy quality to last."
Mehrkens' words clarify the essence of the lighting supply industry. Without bulbs, the church is dark.
A moment's notice, the church can truly live out its goal to be a light to the world.
