A close friend of Mandy’s came over for a visit one day, and said she had quit her job she was going to sell blinds for a living!! After the initial surprise wore off, it wasn’t long before Lori Sitko (Budget Blinds of Sherwood Park, Alberta) had them on the phone with Budget Blinds headquarters. They knew it was an opportunity they could not pass up! The business brought the couple to Regina, where they ran an successful location there for nearly 3 years.
