Project Introduction


Tri Star Electric is grateful to have been part of the Sunglass Hut Retail Project, the international leader in sunglass retail, for trusting us to provide a safe and efficient electrical system for its flagship retail store on New York City’s Fifth Ave / 57th St.





Sunglass Hut is undoubtedly the world’s leading retailer of sunglasses and related accessories. As a member of the Luxottica Group, Sunglass Hut offers a vast selection of high-end sunglass brands, from Ray-Ban, Persol and Oakley, to sunglasses by luxury designers the likes of Giorgio Armani, Donna Karan and Versace.



Sunglass Hut’s flagship store required new installations of an electrical service panel as well as more efficient power wiring. To complete the makeover, the famed retailer also necessitated a new set of decorative lighting fixtures that match the lavish atmosphere of the store, in addition to safety-enhancing GFI outlets and Decora receptacles from Leviton.



In 2011, Tri Star Electric was contracted to perform the electrical renovation for the world’s most prestigious seller of sunglasses for its flagship retail store.



New York’s City’s Fifth Avenue / 57th St., the poshest street in the world, is home to Sunglass Hut’s flagship store.
