Labor Day means different things to different people. To some, it signifies the end of summer, and the time to put away the white shoes and clothes. To others it represents the start of the school year.
Select Blinds marks the Labor Day holiday with a special savings certificate for shoppers. In an effort to make its CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) compliant discount blinds even more affordable, in addition to its 30% discount, a special $20 instant gift certificate is offered to the first 1,000 customers per day over the holiday weekend.
In the wake of the recent recall of millions of blinds, Select Blinds made the decision to truly address the meaning of Labor Day with this Safety Savings Instant Gift Certificate. Labor Day means different things to different people. To some, it signifies the end of summer, and the time to put away the white shoes and clothes. To others it represents the start of the school year. To Select Blinds it serves as an opportunity to get the word out that all its window blinds and window shades are CPSC compliant, and that they are taking that extra step with the $20 certificate to make its blinds and shades more affordable for everyone.
Labor Day actually began in Canada before making its way to the US. Labor disputes in Hamilton and Toronto, Ontario in 1872, led to the Trade Union Act, which basically protected union activity. Labor Day in the US was celebrated for the first time in 1882. Like the Canadian Labor Day, the holiday served as a celebratory form of recognition of trade and labor unions. So how does this all tie with Select Blinds? Safety. Unions assured workers of certain rights, which included reasonable hours, fair pay, and a safe environment in which to work. Well Select Blinds believes in the rights of every consumer to own window blinds and window shades that are safe, by offering several ways to avoid the potentially dangerous hazards presented by lift cords.
Select Blinds window fashions offer lift cord cleats to tie the loose cords down, preventing kids or pets from getting tangled up in them. Continuous cord loop safety lift systems come standard on certain honeycomb shades, and are offered as options on others. And the end all to addressing the lift cord is the cordless window shade.
