CAUTION – “BLIND MAN DRIVING” !!!
This is what you have probably read or heard about on the back of our van which has become local legend on the Northern Rivers since 1984.
This famous catchphrase was originally used in 1972 on the back of Lee’s fathers Kingswood Ute, when his father Ron Simons opened Bathurst Blinds & Awnings in Central Western NSW.
After relocating the family to Casino in 1984, Ron opened up Casino’s first ever Custom made Blinds shop. Since 1988 Lee Simons has continued the famous family tradition & in 2018 celebrated 34 years in business with Lee being at the Helm for 30 of them.
In 2010 Lee and his family moved to Ballina to live to expand his enterprise so he can now service Ballina and its immediate areas daily.
Richmond River Blinds main workshop remains based in their humble premises in Casino and services Ballina, Byron Bay, Lismore, Evans Head & Casino DAILY & continue to service the entire Northern Rivers & beyond!!!
Richmond River Blinds remains one of the very few Blinds businesses on the North Coast that actually still make their own Vertical & Roller Blind systems utilizing the most comprehensive selection of fabrics available.
John Collis is a home grown local lad & has been Lee’s right hand man since 2001 and is now solely responsible for the excellent manufacture of all Richmond River Blinds internal products.
Johns attention to detail & infectious personality guarantee our clientele have a great “Blinds” experience!!!! Our Outdoor blinds are custom made by our parent company in Alstonville, again contributing to the local economy & infrastructure.
We strive to excel in personalised, genuine and informative service, meaning the person you initially speak to on the phone is the same person that measures, makes, and installs your product.
We strongly believe in keeping the dollar local so as much as humanly possible, we continually use local suppliers, people & products within the Northern Rivers to support the local industries & families.
RR Blinds have always been generously active in supporting the Westpac Heli-rescue service, many animal shelters & not for profit organizations with donations and products.
