Blinds and Canopies in St. Ives (Cambridgeshire)
5 Foundry Walk
We are Robert and Kelly Alexander. We met just over 6 years ago, online, and are one of the success stories. We have been married for 4 years and have one daughter together.
Robert is from Seattle, Washington, and has experience in BBQ catering and the running of restaurants, having owned one before he began his life in the UK.
Initially, we were looking at possibly running a restaurant together, but it was a chance encounter with our neighbour that led us to open 'Alexander's Blinds'.
Our neighbours, John and Donna, had been manufacturing and selling blinds for over 25 years and had decided they only wanted to manufacture and therefore needed someone to sell them. Why not take a look?
After extensive training and getting to understand the ways in which different blinds fit and work, we began our search for the ideal premises in which to display the blinds we sold. We looked in various locations, but as soon as we came to St.Ives, we felt we had 'come home'. We both love the town whole-heartedly and the support we have had from the local community has been wonderful.
After a year of selling blinds, we joined forces with 'Jo Hunter Curtains' of St.Ives, to offer our customers curtains, cushions and wallpapers, alongside our selection of blinds.
There are many places you can buy bespoke blinds, so why choose 'Alexander's Blinds'?
Well, quite simply, there are a few good reasons: we are a small independent business, and to stay in business in a competitive market is challenging. But many of our customers have chosen us because they believe in supporting local businesses.
Many of our blinds are manufactured in Chatteris, which is only a stone's throw away from St.Ives.
This means that our turn-around time, from placing your order to installation, is often only one week. And whilst we endeavour to get everything perfect for you, sometimes on rare occasions, things can and do go wrong. But again, with our manufacturer so close, most problems can be resolved within a day or two.
So why else should you choose us?
Well, when Robert visits your home to measure up for blinds, you can be safe in the knowledge that you will be getting honest, expert advice. If he believes something won't work, he will explain and offer a solution. We do not believe in just selling you a product. We want you to have the very best your money can buy.
He can advise you of colours, materials and fittings and answer any questions you may have, honestly.
And finally, because our bespoke blinds are made locally, we are able to offer you very competitive prices. So although we may be 'cheaper' than other big named companies, our attention to detail and quality are in no way compromised. Since asset investment is a matter of trust, our principle is to work in partnership with our clients. We see ourselves as your professional partners, a team who have developed and implemented a personalised and integrated concept that exactly suits your requirements.
We are a well-established asset management company in St. Ives and have wide-ranging market experience.
