Celebrating its fifth anniversary of improving homes and decorating spaces, Budget Blinds has a big thank you for its very first clients.

David and Lorraine Corman built a new house in Cumberland five years ago and hired Stu Tunheim and Budget Blinds to cover the windows. It was Stu’s very first job as a Budget Blinds franchisee and it helped to launch a thus far successful business career.

Budget Blinds now employs six people full-time along with owner Stu in the Comox Valley, Campbell River, Nanaimo and the Oceanside areas.

Not only do they cover windows with blinds, shutters and window film, a thriving custom drapery program is now part of the mix. With a new line of specialty soft window treatments called ‘Inspired Drapes,’ custom drapery and curtains are now easy and affordable.

“We hired Budget Blinds because they went the extra mile to take care of us,” said Lorraine. “We just had to tell everyone.”

In thanks to the Cormans, Budget Blinds offered a $100 gift certificate to a local restaurant that they take advantage of on their upcoming anniversary.

“It’s exciting to touch base with the Corman’s again after five years,” Tunheim said.  “They gave us a chance to do business on Vancouver Island, it was our first opportunity. I’m so grateful they hired me.”
