A Cherry Hill resident contacted me recently; seems she received one of my flyers the week previously. She was interested in replacing a vertical blind in her family room. Her budget was $500. I asked her a few questions about colors, materials, and if there were any upcoming events that installation might affect. It seems that Thanksgiving is a big event at her house. I set up an appointment for the next Wednesday. I got all my vertical blinds sample books and began researching the topic. I figured to stay within her budget, I’d have to steer her toward vinyl panels.
I brought my Somner and Vertical Solutions sample cases because they had some blinds within her budget. I met Jeanette and her husband, Bart. We looked around her house and then began to talk. We seemed to hit it off (we’re dog lovers)! I used the Somner sample book because it had such good documentation regarding the gamut of vertical blinds. I pointed out the sample pages that were within her price point, but when she started to page through all the available samples, she selected on that was more that what she expected. However, it looked so good in her family room that she placed an order, right then!
