Although many “big box stores” offer products with the same name brands as Victor Shade Company, the materials are often different and the selection is less extensive. Additionally, Victor Shade offers specials not available at these other stores. Most of the products found at “big box stores” are not custom-made, but rather cut down to fit your windows. Victor Shade’s products are made specifically to the measurements taken in your home. All of Victor Shade’s staff members have extensive training in the window treatments we sell. This is what we do all day, every day. “Big box store” employees may work in many different departments and not be an expert in any.
