Phill's Blinds & Awnings started in September 2012 in a tiny shop with a husband and wife team.
Within 6 months we had the opportunity to become a Haymes Trade outlet selling paint and associated products so Cowra Paint Plus came into existence.
Our eldest son Jeffry came on board for the paint department which gave the business over 40 years combined experience in the retail painting industry.
Soon after that we realized our little shop just could not contain us so moved both businesses up the road to larger premises. We rented two bays, did a lot of renovating and we opened back up for business.
Again our expanding business left us bursting at the seems so we rented a third bay and moved our Automotive paints and accessories into the second bay and the third bay became our storage and receivables.
As our blind and awning business was growing at a rapid pace, Peter, our youngest son joined us and worked alongside Phill with the measuring and installing of the window coverings as well as having to sharpen his paint tinting skills.
12 months ago we employed Lleyton to assist with the blinds and awnings as well as discovering there's more to paint than he thought. The building we were renting came up for sale so to secure the business we purchased it and we are now in the process of renovating the last bay to hold painting classes for furniture and bits and pieces using chalk paints and speciality decorative finishes.
We proudly stock Haymes Paint which is 100% Australian made and owned. Where possible our window coverings are also Australian made.
We believe in customer service and provide professional, friendly advice giving the customer the time that is needed to make the right decision to achieve the best result no matter what the project on hand is.
We have on display over 30 different window coverings so you can actually see the different functions and attributes of each product.
