We are proud to sell ONLY Graber products
Over the course of business we have sold most of the major brands in the window covering industry, and alot of the smaller ones. We made the conscious decision to pear down to one manufacturer for several reasons;
first and foremost is the Graber price point. When it comes down to it all dealers pay about the same price for blinds, regardless of the manufacturer. Grabers suggested retail pricing is the most competitive of the major brands. We try to give ourselves every advantage when we come into your home, but having the lowest price truly seals the deal.
secondly is the quality found in every product. From mini blinds to plantation shutters a tremendous amount of innovation and pride goes into every little detail. From the President of Sales to the woman I met who has been assembling headrails for your vertical blinds it’s apparent that they are not just punching a clock.
lastly is the commitment to support their dealers, like little ol’ us! Our number one concern is your experience with 303 Shutters. We sell 1000’s of window coverings a year and as you can imagine, some projects need a little more attention than others. When it’s your project Graber takes such good care of us it’s easier for us to make you priority number one!
