Broken Shutters Look Awful

Most people agree that plantation shutters look absolutely stunning in any home.

But all it takes is one detached louvre and they can very quickly turn into an eyesore.

Your first port of call is usually the supplier you got them from.  But let me guess; they said they would call you back and you’ve never heard from them since.  They just couldn’t be bothered with repairs or spare parts.

Well help is at hand!  The Shutterplus online store is now open with everything from off-the-shelf velux shutters, to spare shutter parts, fixings and specialist shutter hardware. There’s even temporary blinds while you wait for your shutter order to arrive. And all available for shipping next day!

Duckin’ an’ Diving ‘Arry!

When the late, great Harry Carpenter would interview Frank Bruno and ask him how he was, Frank would inevitably reply “Duckin an divin ‘arry”!

It occured to me, what with the debt crises in the US and Europe, growing unemployment and deteriorating consumer sentiment in general, we are all going to have to engage in some ducking and diving of our own, we are all going to have to shop a little more savvy from now on!

It’s clear we are in the middle of a seismic shift in the way people communicate with each other, how we purchase goods and how, despite the best efforts of governments and major financial instutions, every generation has its “reset” button pushed at some point, to prevent us from loosing the run of ourselves.

Time was, when Joe Bloggs wanted plantation shutters throughout his home, he simply lifted the phone, got the quote for ten grand and eight weeks later had them fitted.  Lovely jubbly!

Today, Joe’s got three quotes and he’s got the price down to eight grand.  Plus, he’s discovered diy shutters online and if he’s prepared to do some simple measuring himself and can get the father-in-law to give him a hand fitting them over a weekend, he can have the job done for six grand!

The shift in consumer mindset to more thrifty shopping habits won’t happen overnight, but happen it will.  And retailers, especially interior furnishings retailers, had better be ready when it does.

Know what I mean ‘arry!
