Budget Blinds new service to Moose Jaw just might cause some homeowners to "shutter" with excitement.
The window covering service brings the store to the homeowner with samples of products on-hand for the customer to see in his or her own space.
Owner and style consultant Jennifer Forrester operates the service not only in the Moose Jaw area, but in Swift Current as well.
Forrester said that after hearing good things about the franchise and the neat concept, she decided to take a two-week training course in California and bring Budget Blinds to the Moose Jaw area.
"I love to decorate, it allows me to be creative," said Forrester, who was a pharmaceutical salesperson before she started with Budget Blinds.
"I love helping people decorate in their homes, it's a really important thing for a house and a room to look right."
Budget Blinds is unique in that the customers can shop at home. Style consultants bring the showroom into the consumer's home, giving the customer a better idea of the final look of their product.
Each window covering is custom sized and fitted by an installer within two weeks.
"Nothing is more frustrating in a home improvement project than discovering the colour isn't quite right or the size is just off when you get the products home," said Forrester.
"We eliminate a good deal of the guesswork by bringing in thousands of samples with us and exploring different ways consumers can dress their windows to suit their style."
The service has only been in operation in Moose Jaw for about two or three weeks, but Forrester said that she's already got a few appointments and, so far, she's been enjoying the change.
