Blindsgalore Certified by Women's Business Enterprise National Council

The company, run by a mother-daughter team, was certified as a woman-owned business

Blindsgalore is Women Owned

Blindsgalore, a company offering high-quality window coverings at affordable prices, was recently certified as a Women's Business Enterprise by the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC).

Chelle Walters founded Blindsgalore as she struggled to find quality, affordable window treatments that fit her needs. Walters started Blindsgalore to offer custom window treatments that anyone at home could design. Her daughter, Alissa Walters, joined the company in 2008 as the CEO. The pair maintains their family ideals dedicated to quality, beauty and approachability with all Blindsgalore products.

"We want to be transparent about exactly who is behind the scenes at Blindsgalore so that our community can know who they are working with and so that we can hopefully become less behind the scenes," Alissa Walters said. "Being supported by the WBENC is an honor for my mom and I as owners. We like to know who we're working with and we know our customers do, too."

The WBENC standard of certification is a meticulous process, including an in-depth review of the business and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm the business is at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by a woman or women. Blindsgalore is 100% owned and operated by Chelle and Alissa Walters. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, corporations and government agencies demonstrate their commitment to fostering diversity and the continued development of their supplier diversity programs.

"There are 13 million women-owned businesses in the U.S., representing 42% of all businesses. Yet there is still a significant disparity in revenue and capital between these businesses and others," said a spokesperson for WBENC). "WBENC is helping bridge that gap — through access to opportunities, programs that accelerate growth, and campaigns to influence consumer buying behaviors."
