With over 1000 home invasions in the Greater Toronto Area annually, why take the risk to invite some unknown home improvement vendor to your home for a “FREE” consultation.  Unfortunately, some of these FREE home consultation vendors are not legitimate and are just scouting your home in advance for items to steal.  Or at best, they are in the business for the short-term, quick cash.  No sustainable business can give FREE home consultation to everyone that asks without first qualifying the prospects.

We at Trendy Blinds & Closets understand that any home improvement project involves some amount of financial preparation, and the selections you make and the vendor you choose will impact the project results that you will have to live with for a long time.  Therefore we invested in 2 showrooms for you to see, touch and operate the products, talk to experts, and get comfortable with us as a legitimate vendor to meet your needs before we come to your home.

As a incentive to visit our showroom, from now till the end of the year, when you come in to one of our showrooms, fill up the contact form, and mention this blog posting, you will get a $50 Gift Card.  So visit us today!  Locations and hours can be found on our website here: http://www.trendyblinds.com/contact.php.

Yes, despite high-end appearances, we got Cheap (aka low low) prices.

Don’t be “mugged” by shady dealers in hidden, back-alley places offering you suspicious deals on so-called “quality” products

narrow-alley-image

We find that a segment of shoppers in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) has a strange (inaccurate) thinking that best deals can only be found in hidden places, like a back alley, dingy workshop or basement, or from some guy driving around the neighbourhood in a beater vehicle demanding Cash only with no receipt for the “best deal in town”.  Growing up, my impression of back alleys are areas where people might get mugged.  For me, successful businesses should have presentable showrooms in good locations, a clear repeatable sales process that quickly identify real customers, standardize pricing and discount policy that all employees follow that allows them to be competitive with the competition, and a strong reputation for service.  For Trendy Blinds, 1000’s of customers have done their homework and checked out the competition and chose us because we provided the best value (= Quality + Service + Price).  Don’t let our high end image intimidate you into thinking we don’t have the best prices in town.

 

Trendy Blinds & Closets – our 2 showrooms, located in busy malls with ample parking, are signs of a successful business, where our volume sales allow us to give you the best deals and our size can guarantee service for many years to come.

Death of Retail? Not too fast…

GDS0802_RN110909CA

With Amazon announcing a “contest” to cities and regions to bid for their new HQ2 headquarters and 50,000 high-paying jobs, people have been quick to pronounce the death of retail and proof that online shopping is the future.  However, in our experience, we think retail is going in 2 different directions and its not just online:

 

Direction 1 – Online: Why get out of the house, there is more selection and better prices online and delivery right to the door — perhaps by a drone.  However, the truth is there is more selection of “mass” market items i.e. lower price, commodity products and finishes with none or minimal professional service requirements.  However, once someone is looking for more unique and/or higher quality materials and products, the selection online is limited.  Why?  See Direction 2 below.

 

Direction 2 – Speciality Retail: Custom made to order products use higher quality material and often require a knowledgeable professional or team of knowledgeable professionals to help the customer choose the right product and install it.  Looking at digital images online tends to give people the impression that there is minimal difference in quality between one item and another that might be price 20% higher.  In reality, once you see the complete products side-by-side in a showroom, it becomes very apparent that the higher price item gives much better value to the buyer and is multiple times better in quality and usage.  Looking at just finish samples at home is not the same as looking at the complete product in operations at a showroom.  Also, many manufacturers and retailers are reluctant to sell direct their most unique or higher quality items online as online shoppers predominately short-list by price, thereby eliminating those very products that make the retailer unique.

 

We at Trendy Blinds & Closets, are currently addressing the needs of Direction 2 above with 2 showrooms in the Greater Toronto Area, with combine opening hours of 7 days a week.  For the online crowd, stay tuned for some well priced, easy to purchase items online from Trendy Blinds in the near future.

Cheap Cost More! Go for Value NOT Cheap!

As a leading retailer or window coverings and closet organizers in the Greater Toronto Area, we have the privilege to meet thousands of people a year.  Within a minute of conversation, we can usually identify shoppers who are solely focused on price and have no interest in learning about the products, our company or even having a look at the finishes and options available.  As the saying goes “You get what you pay for”.  There is always someone in Toronto who is willing to sell you garbage for a low low price.  Even if you plan to “flip” your property, paying slightly more for better quality and service will make a difference in how much you can sell your property for.  Home buyers are smarter these days and can tell apart cheap products and rush installation jobs vs. quality window coverings and closet organizers installed right.

How Trendy Blinds & Closets provide VALUE to you

  1. We focus on selling high quality products.
  2. We cut out the middle man by selling factory direct for our brand of products.  Plus we sell brand names at aggressive discounts.
  3. We don’t waste employee and management time chasing after price-shoppers, we first qualify the potential customer to see if there is a fit between what we offer and what they are looking for i.e. high quality, 5-star service at a great price.  Our time is dedicated to serving real customers.
  4. We constantly update our offerings to match current design trends.
  5. We get all certifications and training for all our staff and contractors.
  6. Our installers are fully certified and insured.
