Window Covering Manufacturer’s Association (WMCA) Annual Awards

The Window Covering Manufacturer’s Association (WMCA) held its annual awards competition in New York, and once again, the vendors who we represent dominated the honors. Hunter Douglas and Norman Window Fashions were represented in the categories of innovation, Green technology, marketing, sampling, and product safety. Dave’s Shutter & Blind is proud to partner with premium brands that feature innovation, green technology and child safety.

“Customers will often ask us for a quote on a “shutter or a shade” for their home, and if a customer isn’t aware of the differences between an average product and a great product, they will often fall into buying just on price.” We educate our customers on the technical qualities of the product, as well as the durability, energy efficiency, and beauty of the product. When our customers are aware of the differences, they always choose the better product. That’s why we stick with Hunter Douglas and Norman branded products. “It’s not just the awards, but the level of service, delivery, and business partnerships that drive our business. We have a lot of choices of vendors, and we have tried most every company out there over the past 20+ years” said Abby Beckloff, director of marketing services.

Customers will sometimes ask if we can match a price on our Hunter Douglas or Norman products with a lesser brand. I sometimes chuckle, but the answer is no. Our 110% price guarantee on all of our Hunter Douglas and Norman products is what we offer to our customers. Combined with 20+ years of experience, professional installations and the best products on the market, we guarantee the best window covering experience.
