Temporary window covering company BlindsinaBox Ltd has announced that from 9 March its product will be sold by catalogue retailer Argos.
BlindsinaBox Ltd appeared on the hit BBC two show Dragons’ Den in September 2008, and secured investment from multi-millionaires Duncan Bannatyne and James Cann.
Bannatyne said: “This is one of my favourite investments, and I saw the potential immediately. I wasn’t just investing in the product but the people behind it.: Simeone, Janice and Dominic have been a pleasure to deal with and I predict they are heading for even more success”.
The new deal with Argos will see the paper blinds – which are easy to use with no need for screws or nails – stocked in all 700+ Argos stores in the UK.
Anna Protherough, textiles and blinds buyer at Argos, said: “We are delighted to be able to bring an innovative new product to the market , especially as it will make our customers’ lives easier.
This is the second time we have stocked an investment from Dragons’ Den and we are hopeful BlindsinaBox will be as successful as iTeddy, which we also carried exclusively in 2007.”
