Many consider JC Penney blinds to be the staple in the window blinds industry. The company has been in the business for a long time. And their products are considered high quality by a large number of consumers, but they are no longer the only option when it comes to high quality and fair pricing for window treatments like blinds and shades.

Many would agree that in addition to not being the only option...they aren't the best option for most consumers in today's market either. The market has evolved to suit the consumers' needs. This means that traditional answers and "staples" may not be the best answer anymore.

Pricing is a major priority for most consumers. In any market consumers want to get the very most for their money. This is no different in the window blinds industry.

JC Penney blinds often carry a hefty price tag. In today's market some consumers are basing their purchase solely on price (which is never a good idea), but all consumers are taking price into consideration.

JC Penney pricing is above average in the industry. This is due in large part to their operational costs. JC Penney blinds' price tags reflect the higher cost of maintaining operations in a large, brick and mortar retail store. JC Penney blinds' pricing also reflects the need for a representative that handles measurement and installation.

Many distributors in the industry allow consumers to conduct their own measurements and installation. This decreases costs associated with window blinds purchase and install drastically in comparison to JC Penney blinds. Easy to access and understand measurement and installation guides make handling this part of the process easy for any amateur DIYer.
