Customer Recommendation for Lia Kushnir

Hi Lia —

I just wanted to let you know how pleased I am with the shade and shutters from 3 Day Blinds.  Everything is perfect!  But mostly, I just wanted to tell you how much I appreciated all the help you gave me.  Your knowledge and experience were very helpful to me in making my choices, and your recommendations turned out to be just right!

Also, your care with my individual project was most appreciated!  The fact that you insisted upon being present when your professional insataller came out to measure for the shutters really filled me with confidence.  Also, your following up after that, to be sure things continued to go smoothly, was really extraordinary!  Your willingness to step in and take over when there were scheduling problems was the absolute best!

I have already recommended you to one friend, and I will continue to do so whenever I have the chance, Lia!  You made the experience the very good one it turned out to be. 

Thank you so much!
Penny, California

Happy Thanksgiving from 3 Day Blinds!

At 3 Day Blinds, we always find a way to celebrate important holidays such as Thanksgiving.  However, this year, Thanksgiving happens to be coinciding with a massive sales spike, so we had 2 celebrations in one!

The Marketing Department arranged for Bad to the Bone BBQ to cater our luncheon, and it was fabulous…  beef, pork, chicken, macaroni, mashed potatoes, cornbread, brownies, cookies…  need I say more?

Yes, it is a bit unconventional for late November, but BBQ was what Greg Bibas promised us if we hit what we all thought was a totally impossible sales goal.  Of course this celebration came at a busy time.  Our phones are ringing off the hook with clients calling to schedule appointments to take advantage of our “Free Installation Plus Save 10%” sale, which ends on November 26th, so our call center reps had to eat quickly in small shifts….  but they’re used to that!    Our installers are out in force focusing on putting the finishing touches on the windows of our many clients who want their new custom window treatments installed before Thanksgiving. Our Design Consultants are providing free consultations for clients who are starting to think about Christmas.  And we’re all taking Thursday off to be with our families.

All of us at 3 Day Blinds would like to thank you for your business and wish you and your families a happy and safe Thanksgiving Holiday.

Tikie, who has been very involved in hiring the team members here over the years expressed her excitement after dinner, “What an amazing trip this has been.  The group meetings were exceptionally productive, and the social time was a blast!  If I lived in Chicago, I would trust my window decorating to any one of these pros!  I know that we have hired the best.”

Simply Sheer Shades, exclusively from 3 Day Blinds, were introduced in October 2011.

Customer Recommendation for Sandy Tuite

I love my blinds! My blinds were installed last Saturday by Orlando and I am so pleased with the way they look.  My room looks so finished now and the sun through the windows is moderated by the blinds.  I’m really happy and want to thank you for making the whole process so darned easy!  It was a pleasure working with you Sandy!   Thanks again!

Halloween 2011 – Having Fun at Work (A REQUIREMENT at 3 Day Blinds)!

 Would you trust your window decorating to this crowd? Hundreds of thousands of your neighbors have, and our surveys say that 95% of them would recommend 3 Day Blinds to you! From left to right: Steve Marinca, Tilly Sanchez, Natalie Niverson, Karen Morrisseau, Joan Boardman, Ly Nguyen, Bashar Samman, Jennifer Bell, and Omar Espinosa.

By the time you show up to work on your first day at 3 Day Blinds, you have already been informed:  having fun at work is not optional, it is a requirement!  Yes, it’s true.  Before you get hired, you have to review, agree with and adopt our Core Values – and one of them is “Passion”, defined as “engaged in our work, enjoying the experience.”

Well, the manifestation of this core value on Halloween 2011 in the Irvine Corporate Headquarters, was that we created a monster, so to speak!  Throughout the office, team members were dressed up and cubicles were decorated in all sorts of creative ways.  We had a company potluck with frightfully fabulous fare, and a colorful costume contest.

At 3 Day Blinds, we have lots of policies and procedures that have been fine-tuned in the 30+ years we have been in business that we all buy into, follow and actually enjoy! They’re designed to ensure flawless, seamless, easy, wonderful experiences for our clients.  However, it takes all kinds to keep this well-oiled machine on the cutting edge and running fast, and we are a creative collection of folks, made up of all kinds of unique individuals with universally great personalities, a spectrum of impressive talents and – needless to say – a multitude of different ways of expressing ourselves!  

Rest assured, this creativity takes a completely different form when our local Design Consultants visit the homes and businesses of their clients.  In that scenario, they are using their creativity, along with expert product, technical and fashion knowledge to recommend the best window treatment solution.  Our clients are delighted with the outcome, and most of them report that they had fun in the process!  Not a surprise!

If you’re ready for a window makeover that can happen in as little as 3 days, give us a call at 877-614-3329 to schedule your free consultation today or click here to schedule online, 24/7!
