We are a family owned and operated business, which has been built on the principles of honesty, integrity and superior quality, locally manufactured products at affordable prices.
Where it all began
In 1978 Rick Evans decided he was ready to do things his way. After a successful career working in the home furnishings department at Myer, Rick was ready to strike out on his own.
Establishing a retail premise on the Burwood Hwy at Burwood, and ably assisted by his wife Carol, Evans Curtains and Blinds was born.
A short time later, Rick and Carol were joined by one of Rick’s ex-Myer colleagues, Vince Raymond. Together they formed a formidable team, building the business and its reputation until retiring in 2013
Our business today
The business relocated to Frankston in 2014, and today is run by David and Samantha Nuttall.
The new location provides an ideal gateway to the Mornington Peninsula, as well as still providing easy access to the Eastern and South Eastern suburbs that the business has traditionally serviced for so long.
“We still have customers asking after Rick, Carol and Vince. It’s always amazing to hear about the connections and loyalty that has been built with customers over the years” says Samantha.
Vince still lives on the Mornington Peninsula, and loves to drop in for a coffee and have a chat about the business whenever he gets the opportunity.
What makes us different
We don’t spend money on teams of sales reps driving around in company vehicles. In our experience this is expensive and creates a culture of needing to sell products quickly, rather than taking the time to find the right solutions for each individual customer.
We don’t spend money advertising on TV or radio. Guess who is ultimately paying for that cost ?
Instead we rely on our customers referring us to family and friends, because of the exceptional service they have had from us. This enables us to keep our overheads low, so that our customers get the quality without the cost.
We have a five step process
When you initially make contact with us, we will take the time to listen to your thoughts and ask you a variety of questions, so that we can present you with the best range of solutions. If you are an existing customer, we will already have access to all your previous purchases, so we will know the fabrics, colours etc. that have been selected in the past.
A detailed quote will be emailed to you, with a line by line fixed price for all the products you are interested in. If there are multiple products or design options you would like to consider, we will provide you with quotes for all these options.
We will contact you to arrange suitable time and date for installation once your products have been manufactured. It’s worth noting that we do not employ sub-contractors to undertake this most important aspect of our service. On completion we will remove all packaging and clean the area. Arrangements can also be made for us to take down and dispose of any old window coverings for you.
