Sandy Glenn, a graduate of the Georgia Institute of Technology, has been in the lighting field for over forty-five years. At heart an entrepreneur, he opened his own business in 1987 with a focus on the art of custom design and a strong desire to share with others his love of contemporary lighting. The basic realization that Omaha, Nebraska, had little to offer to its residents in this style, prompted Sandy to choose this location for his own niche store. After more than thirty-five years, his love of this contemporary art form has only increased; he stays current with all the newest products by attending design shows, lighting markets, and new technology conventions. Though based in Omaha, he also travels to bring state-of-the-art custom lighting design and home automation to clients across the country.
ALR was originally known as Lamps, Lights, and Shades, a small lighting gallery located in Miracle Hills. Over the years, it acquired its present name, and relocated to Rockbrook Village, Midtown, the House & Home Center in West Omaha, and currently Empire Spectrum. However, amidst the changing names and locations, our passion, total dedication, creativity, and reliability have remained the same.
