Fitzpatrick's Window and Blind, Inc. started as Middlesex Window Shade over 30 years ago. The company was opened as a shade shop by Bernie Fitzpatrick, the owner and sole employee at the time, from a rented counter in the back of a carpet and flooring company in Chelsea, MA. With only the philosophy that every house had windows and every window needed a shade, and nothing else, the company was open for business. Storm products were the first product line to be added and when the first sales rep came in for Replacement Windows Bernie knew it was a product that people would benefit from, especially in the cold New England winters. As new innovations in window treatments began, the product line of Fitzpatrick's followed suit with vertical blinds, horizontal blinds, cellular blinds, and of course continuing with roller shades. Fitzpatrick's was now a full service window company that could dress the window from the inside out. By now the company had outgrown it's Chelsea location and relocated to Malden, MA. Bernie's attention to quality and detail that he applied when making his shades that earned him his first customers has never wavered and to this day, every product we sell gets taken apart and put back together before it ever hits the showroom floor. It's called passing the Bernie test. Don't be surprised if our estimators know the make of your windows and treatments and offer you a brief history of how they differ. We love what we do and want to share. 30 years later we are still a family business even though not all of our employees share our blood. Starting with our first employee there has become an honored Fitzpatrick's tradition that everyone in our 'family' gets a well earned nickname. There is Remark, Persnicketts, the Professor, or NASDAQ to name a few. Our 'graduates' are still called by their Fitzpatrick's names when they stop by for coffee! Even today, through every evolution we have taken, Bernie still refers to himself as a shade maker. If Bernie, the shade maker, happens to come out for your estimate, ask him why a wooden roller is ingenious. You won't be disappointed!
