The company, led by a mother-daughter team, has been certified as a woman-owned company
SAN DIEGO, Jan. 20, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — 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 met her needs. Walters launched Blindsgalore to offer custom window treatments that anyone at home could design. His daughter, Alissa Walters, joined the company in 2008 as CEO. The pair maintain their family ideals of dedicated quality, beauty and affordability with all Blindsgalore products.
“We want to be transparent about exactly who is behind the scenes at Blindsgalore so our community can know who they’re working with and so 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 love knowing who we work with and we know our customers do too.”
The WBENC certification standard is a meticulous process, including a thorough company review and site inspection. The certification process is designed to confirm that the business is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more women. Blindsgalore is 100% owned and operated by Chelle and Alissa Walters. By including women-owned businesses among their suppliers, companies 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 United States, representing 42% of all businesses. Yet there is still a significant disparity in revenue and capital between these businesses and others,” said said a WBENC spokesperson). “WBENC helps bridge this gap – through access to opportunities, programs that accelerate growth, and campaigns to influence consumer buying behaviors.
