This is in a Walmart which had an addition recently (past 10 years?. To the left you can see the older style lighting they used and to the right are the newer style. I like the older style better.

I personally hate the staggered lamp ones on the far left. My local walmart has those. I actually like the new ones on the right end of the drop ceiling better. The reflectors are larger (they look less glary in the picture too!) and the lamps are in-line, the proper way to do it in my opinion. The 2nd closest walmart to me has lights similar to the newer drop ceiling lights in this pic, except they are 4-lamp F32T8 instead of 2-lamp.

To resist is to piss in the wind, anyone who does will end up smelling.

That looks just like the Walmart here. On ours (I think it was originally built in 1992), it didn't have that grocery deparment. And it had the drop ceiling with those staggered lamp fixtures (I like them myself.) Then around the late 1990s they added on the grocery section with those open beam ceilings and those light fixtures. I can remember as a kid, it seemed like the lights in that section would be off or dimmed during the day since it had those skylights that let in sunlight.

Although those red signs are different than the one here, because here they say "Voted Florida's #1 Low Price Leader" instead of "America's".

Collect vintage incandescent and fluorescent fixtures. Also like HID lighting and streetlights.

My walmart still has the shoplight fixtures and they are still 2 lamp but they have LED tubes in them. There is some T5 louvers hanging over the produce area. The big black price signage are blue here

I do know of two Walmart stores near Dayton that still have the drop ceiling/ceiling tiles. Haven't been to them for a while, but
I know for a fact they've probably been downgraded to LED. Both the Walmart stores I typically shop at in Franklin and Xenia Ohio,
contain the sky-light based ceilings, and unfortunately, LED retrofitted fixtures. At least the fixtures here in this picture are
still fluorescent, and two lamp

1. Motorcycles, Women, and Lighting (especially fluorescent)
2. Weighting/staying extremely athletic
3. Severe Thunderstorms of all kinds
4. Food and drinks. So gimme them bbq ribs
Lighting has been a passion of mine since I was born. I consider everyone on LG to be a friend
