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:

53% of our staff have been with us 20 or more years.

20% of our staff have been with us 15-20 years.

   The Evers Family, Founders of Blind Alley in 1984

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.
