Three generations... and still going strong

Issue 658

A LONG-ESTABLISHED family business celebrated 40 years of good, old-fashioned quality and personal service last week.

Batley Curtains & Blinds held an event attended by clients and friends at their Commercial Street premises, with a raffle, drinks and nibbles on offer to mark their 40th anniversary.

Founded in 1974 by current owner Sue Lloyd’s parents, the business moved to Batley six years later and offers designer, ready-made or made-to-measure curtains, along with a full range of blinds, many made in the on-site workroom.

Last Friday staff celebrated with a free draw, with many of the prizes donated by other local businesses.

Prizes included a £50 voucher to spend in store, coffee and cake for two at nearby Nix Catering & Cakes, plus a manicure voucher and a hair appointment at Reflections Hair and Beauty.

Baking expert Nicola Rhodes, from Nix, also created a special themed cake to mark the occasion.

Sue Lloyd said: “It was a massive thank you to all our customers old and new.”

The team has in total more than 140 years of experience, and the store also has a full range of curtain and blind accessories.

They cater for all tastes in curtaining and have a large selection to choose from, in either traditional or modern designs.

Free, friendly advice on colour matching and style is also available and there is a full measuring and fitting service.
