Plantation shutters in the USA
Opening The Shutter Store in Las Vegas, Nevada, in late 2009 – at the very height of a bad recession - may have seemed like shutter madness. However, Mark Carter, founder of Shutterly Fabulous and The California Company felt that despite plantation shutters being a mature window treatment in the USA, there was a gap in the market for a high quality wood shutter sold online via a DIY store.
The sales success of The Shutter Store since launch have vindicated the company's belief that cost conscious consumers while looking for good value during tougher times still want a high quality wooden shutter.
The concept of The Shutter Store is simple. Customers measure their windows themselves, order online or over the phone and receive their window shutters for DIY self installation. In return, by doing this part of the service themselves, customers save a considerable amount of money versus the prices charged by big box stores or shutter specialists.
While the thought of undertaking the measure and install may seem daunting, what makes this company unique is the support and advice given to ensure your shutters are the perfect fit. Their website is packed with easy to follow videos and guides. The company is staffed by shutter experts who can help with any design or measure questions you have. They even encourage you to email a photo of your windows and they will mark the photo to show how to measure and advise on the perfect design.
With all shutters made from premium grade hardwood, custom made to your specification you will find The Shutter Store offer a service and shutter that’s hard to beat.
