Austin, Texas September 15, 2005 - For years now, if consumers wanted custom window coverings, they had to either call a local decorator, or face the hassles of doing it themselves at a box store or over the Internet. The local decorator route was expensive and the box store was inconvenient. The internet route offered convenient shopping and affordability, yet still required a significant investment of time and energy. On July 30, 2005 YourBlinds.com ( www.YourBlinds.com ) introduced another option, Full Service, bringing the competence of seasoned Professionals to the convenience of Internet shopping at an affordable price, nationwide.
Linda Lee, CEO, said, "We looked at the number of mismeasuring problems our customers were routinely encountering and knew there was a better way to serve them. I had spent my early years in this industry selling directly to homeowners. I knew the pitfalls they faced in attempting to change their window treatments themselves. It is a worrisome experience waiting to receive new window coverings, knowing that you have invested a lot of money, hoping, but not knowing for sure, that you measured correctly. As well, I saw the number of large orders for blinds for an entire house and knew someone was going to be spending his/her entire weekend putting up new window coverings, a project that a professional installer could complete in a matter of 2-3 hours."
She went on to say, "We recognize most people do not yet look to the Internet for services. We believe this is just a matter of time. We are on the cutting edge of leveraging the technology and convenience of the Internet with the friendly, reliable, old-fashioned service folks are used to getting locally. In the end, it is still people working with people."
With its Full service option, consumers who do not know where to begin are assisted by Design Professionals. Those who think they know what they want, find out whether that product will work in their situation. This is followed by a Professional Installer measuring and installing the custom window coverings. The customer can relax, knowing it will be right, and confident that if there is a problem with any window covering received, it will be taken care of for them without their involvement. YourBlinds.com takes full responsibility to ensure the buying experience is enjoyable and hassle-free for their customer, like it should be.
Some window covering manufacturers prohibit the sale of their proprietary products over the internet citing the pitfalls of purchasing and installing these complex products by non-professionals. With their Full Service offering, YourBlinds is able to offer their customers these popular products which are not available over the Internet. People needing motorized blinds for hard to reach windows or wanting to cover skylights can rest easy with Full Service.
