Delux Drapery Moves West

From S. Main to W. Stadium

by Sally Mitani

From the July, 2012 issue

Delux Drapery, a seventy-year-old business owned by Steve Blunk, the grandson of the original owner, is leaving its location on S. Main across from the South Main Market, where it's been for eighteen years, to make room for a seven-story apartment complex. Delux will close for a week in early July and reopen July 9 in the old Arbor Farms store on W. Stadium.

Blunk says business has been "sporadic" for the last several years, but has lately been picking up. He has been able to retain two full-time designers on staff. After years of mini-blinds, he says "real fabric treatments," like traditional draperies and roman shades, are back in style. "Greens and oranges have been big this year." Delux also sells wallpaper and does upholstery.

Delux Drapery, 2215 W. Stadium, 662-6524. Mon.-Wed. & Fri. 9 a.m.-6 p.m., Thurs. 9 a.m.-7 p.m., Sat. 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Closed Sun. deluxdrapery.com    (end of article)
