Jerry and his wife Sandra started the Blind and Drapery Co. in 1990 after several successful years in the fabric business. That led quite naturally into window coverings. Jeremy joined the business in 1994 and became the third member of the team. In 2013, Jerry passed away, and his son Jeremy proceeded to take over the company with all the knowledge and ambition that his dad taught him over the years. His mom Sandra and niece Madison run the office.
We are a small company that does big jobs and small jobs alike. In 2017 Blind and Drapery won The President’s award for excessive sales in shutters in Southwestern Ontario! It’s a store at your door. We bring samples of everything we have and let people see what they look like in their office or their homes. We take orders and then we come back and install exactly what people have already seen. It really works well and keeps our overhead down. We don’t have to pay for a showroom, and that keeps our prices very competitive.
Working with condominium and home builders as well as many interior designers, the company offers packages that make it much easier for new homeowners to choose window coverings. They are ready when you are. We also serve many commercial customers, a very long list which is on our website.
So impressed are the company’s customers that they keep coming back, even if they no longer live in London. We do a lot of work at cottages in Grand Bend and Bayfield because people know us from the work we have done in their homes in London, says Jeremy. Our customers really like the service we provide, and when they find they can’t get service like that where they have moved, they call us, and we are happy to help.
The Blind and Drapery Co. over the years has supported many charitable organizations including LHSC, Hospital Activity Book, Ride for Cancer, Mustang Junior hockey team and Junior Knights hockey.
Into our third decade, the Roller family is doing something they love and satisfying their customers at the same time. That’s what a family business should be all about.
We are proud sponsors of Junior Mustangs and Junior Knights hockey.
