The manager and employees worked extremely well together and got this job done quickly, and all with the friendliness you can expect from a family-owned business.

After hearing the plight of a family of five that had been homeless and struggling for six years, 1-800-4-BLINDS, a Southfield store specializing in window treatments and flooring, decided to help out by providing blinds free of charge for the family’s new home. The family, which had recently benefitted from a Good Samaritan, was helped into a rental home in a nice neighborhood in Detroit. However, while the house was in good condition, it contained boards and sheets in place of window blinds.

Sherry Walker, who became involved with helping the family obtain home essentials, went to the 1-800-4-BLINDS store on Telegraph in Southfield in search of low cost window treatments.

“After talking to several 1-800-4-BLINDS employees and the owner Barry about this family’s unique situation, they immediately agreed to help out. Within two days, a service engineer was sent to the home to measure the windows, and a few days later, another employee showed the family how to use the blinds effectively and the color options they had. A week later, they came and installed the blinds,” Walker says of the process. “The manager and employees worked extremely well together and got this job done quickly, and all with the friendliness you can expect from a family-owned business.”

This is not the first time 1-800-4-BLINDS has reached out in the Metro-Detroit area and it definitely will not be the last. 1-800-4-BLINDS has built up a reputation as a solid contributor to the less fortunate.
