What's New at The Blind Alley
Hats off to Hunter Douglas Platinum™ Technology. The newest addition to the Platinum family, the Gateway and Repeater System was recognized by Electronic House, an important industry magazine, in its 2014 Products of the Year competition.

The Gateway is similar to the WCMA award-winning Platinum App Bridge and is used primarily for integrating Hunter Douglas window fashions with home automation systems.

Who We Are
The Blind Alley was opened March 31st, 1984 in Bellevue, Washington by Gene & Kurt Evers. Locally owned and operated, and unlike franchises, such as Budget Blinds, which "trains" new franchise owners in weeks, our owners have extensive experience in the custom window covering trade dating back to 1967 in Bellevue.
Our employees go through a year of in-store training before they begin in-home decorating or installing for our customers. They also have extensive experience in custom window coverings:
50% of our staff have been with us 20 or more years.
6% of our staff have been with us 10-20 years.
17% of our staff have been with us 5-10 years.
28% of our staff have been with us less than 5 years.
The Blind Alley was an offshoot of Group II Associates, founded in 1981, also by Gene & Kurt Evers. Group II Associates specializes in large commercial projects and the opening of The Blind Alley was a response to requests for a residential version of Group II Associates.
