BLIND BROTHERS ARIZONA MOVES TO NEW LOCATION IN HISTORIC FACILITY
by Tracey Horn, Founder, Helken & Horn Advertising Agency
Blind Brothers Arizona recently moved its operations to 230 N. McCormick St. in Prescott. Owner Steve Blair recently purchased the building and has made extensive improvements to the former EZ Transmix building.
“The old metal cement hopper out front is considered a landmark here in Prescott, so we’re going to preserve it,” Blair said.
His window-covering business now has a full showroom with displays of different style blinds, shutters, fabrics for drapes and custom bedspreads.
“It’s a great move for us to be able to have our customers see all we have to offer,” he said.
When looking for the right window coverings for rooms in your home or office, the selection can be overwhelming. When you encounter such things as nosy neighbors or harsh sunbeams, the purpose and worth of proper window coverings take on a new light.
“We carry any blind style you’re looking for and can show you in our showroom, or we’ll bring the samples right to you, allowing you to envision what design and color best suits each of your rooms,” Blair said. “The days of metal mini-blinds and vinyl verticals are long gone. Today, blinds are fashionable and functional. You can even program them to open and close at certain times of the day.”
Homeowners and businesses in the northlands have been trusting Blind Brothers Arizona to dress their windows since 1979. Blair is a native of Prescott and has a long record of community service. He serves on the Prescott City Council and is involved in many other local and county organization boards and committees.
“I’m so proud to be a native Arizonan,” he said. “That’s why I added Arizona to my company name — Blind Brothers Arizona. We’re known as the ‘originals’ since there is another company out of Cottonwood with the same name. We represent Hunter Douglas and Lafayette brands as a priority dealer because of their solid reputation for quality blinds.”
Need help deciding what option is best for you? Blind Brothers Arizona’s design and sales consultant Jana is happy to help.
“I truly have a passion for window design,” she said. “I enjoy helping people with that special added touch that makes their home uniquely theirs.”
The additional space Blind Brothers Arizona now has allows them the room to offer service repairs on most blinds.
Many people ask if it is worth trying to hang blinds on your own. To some homeowners, these projects can be stressful.
“There are so many options, and measurements can be tricky,” said Erik Meinhardt, who is part of the Blind Brothers Arizona team. “When in doubt, call a professional.”
