We are a third-generation family-owned business
located in the heart of Forest, Virginia.
Proudly Serving Our Customers Since 1976
We are a unique store located in the heart of Forest, Virginia. Our store has been in the family for over 40 years, and thanks to you, our wonderful customers, we are still able to keep it that way!
The store's original founders, James and Joyce Falls, began the business under the name Quality Towel and Linen, and served the local area as an outlet store for towels and bedding where their three daughters worked also. Her daughter, Cindy (the current owner), eventually helped to expand the business to incorporate window treatments as well.
After Cindy and husband Brad purchased the business in 1994, they revamped the store and introduced the blinds and shades. With a new-found market and and expanded focus they renamed it Curtains, Blinds & Bath. Since then, the business has introduced in-stock, high-end ready-made and custom window treatments as well as custom blinds, shades and shutters. Brad and Cindy's children have since started working at the store, keeping the business a family affair!

Cindy Greer, Owner & Interior Decorator
Cindy is the amazing, dedicated, and talented owner of Curtains, Blinds & Bath. Interior decorating is one of her many passions and it shows through her work with clients! A Lynchburg native, Cindy purchased the business from her mother in 1994, after working in the original business since she was 21 years old. Cindy re-vamped the recently acquired store and began offering a custom line of window treatments and expanded with demand to bedding, shower, and more. Due to such a high demand for in-stock unique items for the window, she has been able to expand her product lines to encompass more than she ever imagined!
With over thirty years in this industry she has helped to make many homes and businesses beautiful due to her critical eye and attention to the most finite detail! From helping customers in the store, to personal consultations, and simple furniture re-arrangements, Cindy is the leader of her team and enjoys all of her jobs from concept to creation.
Brad Greer, Co-Owner
Brad is the co-owner, business master mind, and one of the most talkative team members of Curtains, Blinds & Bath. A North Carolina native, Brad moved to Lynchburg when he was in high school. He worked and commuted to the Washington D.C. area for multiple years until he and his wife Cindy purchased the business together in 1994.
Due to his ingenuity and desire to bring quality product at discount pricing to the Lynchburg area, he developed the blind and shade aspect of the business. Now accounting for a large portion of sales, their ability to incorporate this industry into the soft decorating end makes Brad and Cindy a strong duo to beat. Brad's knowledge of the blind and shade industry is extremely vast and no job is too small for him!

Lloyd Wilson, Professional Installer
Lynchburg native Lloyd Wilson has been mastering the arts of many crafts and trades throughout his life. His perfectionism, great southern charm, and personality have made him a very desirable and qualified professional installer! Working mainly in custom cabinetry throughout his adulthood, Lloyd has dealt with products that will be under the utmost scrutiny and has developed a keen eye, especially for the challenging yet breath taking plantation shutters, which do require a skilled craftsman's touch to make them just right!
Lloyd has been with Curtains, Blinds, & Bath since 2009 and enjoys every aspect of his job, from something simple, to the tricky shutters, and of course the drapery end of installing where his superb skills come into play! He represents the company in one of the most important ways as that is typically the last memory they will have and will then be able to enjoy the product. Lloyd enjoys spending time with his wife, son and new-born daughter in his free time, and please ask him about his family because he loves to brag about them (as he should)!
Spencer Greer, Installer

You will catch him with Lloyd several days a week on our installs, as Lloyd's right hand man!
Spencer is currently a Freshman at CVCC where he is training to become a welder and be the first of his siblings to leave his family's business, (or so he thinks, ha!) Spencer has also been known to be the best dressed of the family, and he has a killer head of hair.
Jasper, Store Dog
This lovable pooch is our store dog and let's face it, the only reason some of our customers come in! He's Cindy & Brad's most spoiled "child" and gets to come to work with them most days.
He's here most days, and when he's not, he's at doggie daycare with his friends. Be sure to give him lots of loving next time you stop by!
