Love the look they give, and done in timely manner. Very pleased with service and quality of work.
The Louver Shop of Athens, Georgia is owned by Jory Stubblefield. Jory states that what really makes The Louver Shop unique is that “It has an extensive array of products all in one location. It’s great for the customers because they don’t have to traipse all over town to find the perfect window covering solution.”
Jory is originally from South Carolina (but feels he is a true Georgia native now) and attended school there to learn radio and TV broadcasting. After he graduated, Jory was employed by Eastern Airlines until they went out of business. Luckily, Jory had a very close family friend who was part of The Louver Shop team in Georgia. In 1992, Jory’s friend extended an offer for Jory to come on board as an installer for The Louver Shop. Over time, Jory’s responsibilities grew to include customer service, troubleshooting, and sales. In 2007 an opportunity to become an owner had become available and Jory stepped into that role eagerly.
Jory says that his favorite thing about his job is the flexibility. “I’m always meeting lots of interesting people and helping them so I’m never bored. What I like best is working with customers who buying their first home who haven’t accumulated a lot of knowledge yet. It’s very rewarding to be able to assist them by passing on all I’ve learned.”
Continues Jory, “I like to take the customer’s fear away. I like to make sure that they know that I won’t allow them make a design mistake and I won’t let them purchase something they don’t need.”
Jory goes on to say he enjoys still being able to do some installations. He likes being involved “with the entire spectrum.” “I really love the positive reinforcement and feedback that I get from the people I help. Many times I end up helping multiple generations of the same family as they grow and move into their own homes or when they refer me to one another – grandparents, parents, kids, in laws – it’s a great part of the job!”
Jory says that his client focused goal is to never hear the words, “Oh, I didn’t know it was going to look like that…” Jory explains, “I want to hear, ‘it’s perfect! It’s really changed my home or the whole room!’ I over explain and over communicate and I don’t use jargon because I want my customers to know exactly what to expect. I want completely satisfied customers who refer me or call me again.”
Jory says that the products that are popular are “some of everything. People call me and think that they want a certain item. So I make sure to ask good questions and listen to their answers so that I can make sure that they get the product that they really want and need. However, I do find that Plantation Shutters (of natural or Louverwood) are probably the most popular item among my customers.”
Jory explains, “I believe that my job is to be an assistant buyer to the client, not just a salesperson.”
Jory is quite involved in his community and he especially enjoys all sorts of performing. Jory began playing the guitar at 13 years old and he still sings and plays with his brother at a live venue near where they grew up. Jory is also a vocalist with his church choir and they do a variety of outreach at life care facilities, nursing homes, and retirement communities. Jory participates in local community theatre productions as an actor or a technical director. It’s a chance to use his education, he says.
Jory says that there a many things that he loves about the region. “It’s my community and I really like the diversity. I am never bored living here. The people are so friendly, there are lots of different income levels, and lots of different nationalities. I enjoy meeting all of them and I treat every home that I walk into as if it were my own. Every customer, no matter their background, receives my full attention.”
Jory achieved The Louver Shop’s President’s Club status several times over the years but he says that there are other awards that are just as meaningful to him like a 1st place in a karaoke contest and a 3rd place finish in a horseshoe competition. He is also proud of running and finishing the Peach Tree Road Race 10K but he says that being a grandfather is the most rewarding thing in his life. When it comes to his job, Jory states that his best reward is a happy customer.
