Curtain Exchange moving down the street

Local drapery and bedding source The Curtain Exchange is planning a move from one end of Broadway to another.

Store manager Chris Reinhardt says The Curtain Exchange, which is one of a franchise of dozens of stores in the United States, is aiming to consolidate business because of the economy.

The store plans to move from its current location at 358 Broadway and share space with Stockade Oriental, at 543 Broadway, by mid-October, Reinhardt said. Stockade Oriental is a carpet business owned by Deborah Barthold, who just happens to be related to Reinhardt and The Curtain Exchange owner Catherine Remillard.

“With the rough economic situation that we’re all in right now, we thought that we’d consolidate because we have the same type of customers,” Reinhardt said. “Why not save on some rent and be in one building?”

Reinhardt said she hopes the consolidation of space will better serve clients during the height of the curtain-shopping season, which happens between September and December as people ready their homes for the holidays.

The Curtain Exchange offers custom and ready-made curtains and shades that range from $450 to $4,000, in addition to bedding, design consultation and in-home services. For more information, call 587-4818.
