Meet the Owners
Luis and Griselle Fontanez started Budget Blinds of River City after military retirement, which serves Columbus, GA and surrounding areas. Both have immersed themselves in the window covering industry, residential and commercial. Luis retired from military service after 23 years and settled in Columbus as his preferred location to raise a family. Luis and Griselle love to help customers find the perfect window coverings to meet all of their style, function, and budget needs. Luis loves the timeless look of shutters paired with the softness of draperies. “With so many beautiful fabrics available, soft fashions can truly make a home unique and define the style of the home owner.” Griselle loves the texture, light filtering, and view capabilities of woven wood shades and the Pleated Shades. The Fontanez’ family live in Columbus and have 2 children.
