On the corner of Fayetteville Avenue and Lake Park Boulevard sits one of Wilmington’s most beloved local businesses: Squigley’s. With its three different shoppes, it has provided quality service for over 11 years. Tourists and natives alike enjoy its delicious ice cream, unique gifts and wonderful atmosphere. It’s a solid, family friendly business that takes pride in its appearance. That’s why
when the need for commercial outdoor lighting arose for their Shade Shack they came straight to Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington. We were able to provide attention grabbing, quality outdoor lights for their business.
Squigley’s Ice Cream & Treats is best known for its variety of ice creams. With over 4,000 different combinations to choose from, you won’t walk out feeling unsatisfied. Made with real dairy, their flavors go from classic, like chocolate and vanilla, to outrageous, like their Baklava Squigley and the Fire and Ice Squigley made with Tobasco powder. Not only are their flavors unique, but their gifts are as well. Above the ice cream shoppe sits Squigley’s Gift Gallery. Due to exclusive agreements with artists, suppliers, and crafters, the items you’ll find there are one of a kind. The jewelry alone is breathtaking and all made right here in the United States. Chances are if you’ve ever walked Carolina Beach, you’ve seen a shirt with the saying “I’ve been Squiggled” on it. Behind the main building sits the third extension of the business, Squigley’s Shade Shack. It holds some of Wilmington’s finest sunglasses and handbags. When questions about how to make this particular extension more noticeable, Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington came to the rescue.
Because the Shade Shack is off the main road people have a hard time seeing it, especially at night. The owners wanted to know what they could do in order to attract more attention with outdoor lighting. One look at their landscape and we knew exactly what to do. Out front sits a beautiful mimosa tree. Its long, spacious branches are ideal for holding outdoor lights. We strung our mini LED Holiday lights from the canopy to the branches in an artistic manner. Once the sun had set, they lit the tree up this past Memorial Day and watched it glimmer like gold. The effect was breathtaking. Now seen even in the dark, the mimosa in front of Squigley’s Shade Shack will be on display from Memorial Day until Labor Day for all to enjoy.
Outdoor lighting isn’t just for residential homes. We can find unique ways to illuminate businesses as well. Squigley’s is as much a part of Wilmington as the coast itself. Their beautiful Shade Shack now basks in the warm light the mimosa tree sheds and attracts people from all over. If you want to know what outdoor lighting can do for your business, or even your home, give us a call. Outdoor Lighting Perspectives of Wilmington can provide unique lighting that will help add value and beauty to your home or business.
