Why Choose The Louver Shop of Philadelphia For All Your Window Fashions?
The Louver Shop of Philadelphia, PA is owned by Gary Loconsole. Gary has been with The Louver Shop for more than four years and he loves his job. In his opinion, what sets The Louver Shop apart from the competition is the fact that it has been in business for 40 years and that its products are of the highest quality and used by homeowners all over the country.
Gary grew up in Norriston, Pennsylvania and has been in the area for 50 years. He is a “real local boy”, he says. He graduated from Norristown High School and then went on to receive the rest of his education in the “real work world” as he calls it. Gary feels that his real life, hands on experience has been an excellent education and that it has really helped him to be successful.
For Gary, The Louver Shop is a true family business. His wife works with him and handles all the paperwork while his brother works alongside him as well. His assistant has even been with him over 15 years. Gary previously ran a construction company for more than 25 years. A few years ago, he and his wife purchased shutters from The Louver Shop and in talking to the dealer they used, Gary realized that The Louver Shop would be a perfect fit for him.
One of Gary’s favorite things is meeting all the different people he deals with. He likes that everyone is a little different and what really makes him happy is that many of his customers return again and again. He especially likes that much of his business comes from referrals as well. He feels confident that the quality of The Louver Shop’s products and the great customer service is the reason behind the repeat business and all the referrals.
Gary’s goal for his clients is that they are happy with the product they choose and happy with the customer service they receive. In fact, he wants them to be happy enough to refer The Louver Shop to someone else. Says Gary, “We treat every job as if we were doing for our mom!”
Gary has found that his most popular product is the LouverWood shutter. His clients love it because it is solid (unlike the competition’s, which is hollow), the shutters have an excellent warranty and will not sag, and, if needed, are repaired for free. Gary’s customers like that the Louver Wood shutters are durable but look like real wood. They also have the “R” factor (R stands for resistance) which makes them energy efficient. They are the best on the market and Gary says that they are perfect for the extremely cold Philadelphia winters because “you can close them and light a fire in the fireplace and be warm and cozy”.Gary loves the Philadelphia area and would not change a thing about it. Having grown up here, he enjoys helping people who are new to the area find their way around and recommending services and places to go. He loves being able to pass on “some hometown warmth”, he says. He also likes that Philadelphia has four distinct seasons with Spring and Fall having what he calls “some of the most gorgeous days”. Gary is active in his community and his church. He is a member of NARI, (National Association of the Remodeling Industry) which helps people in need and he enjoys volunteering to do this. Gary spends most of his free time meeting with clients. For many of his customers, evenings and weekends are the best times for them and Gary likes to be able to accommodate them.
Gary has been recognized in many ways over the years but he feels that his greatest reward has been running a successful business for over 25 years. He is also proud of the fact that he is an involved father who has attended many soccer games and raised two kids and put them through college. He is looking forward to being a member of The Louver Shop’s President’s Club one day but his main goal is bringing “awesome products” to his customers every day.
