The Added Touch Drapery Shop was opened March 31, 1972 in New Hartford, New York by Anne and Ray Quinn. Locally owned and operated, and unlike franchises such Budget Blinds which "trains" new franchise owners in weeks, the Quinns had extensive experience in the custom window covering trade dating back to 1972. For over 30 years Added Touch was located on Commercial Drive. In 2002 we moved to our current location at 1 Genesee Street in the village of New Hartford. Now the added touch is under new ownership, with new hours and more services. Mary Ruckel took the reigns on January 1, 2016 and has given the store "The Added Touch" that it needs to stay modern. This new ownership means great customer service, quality, customer satisfaction and exciting changes for The Added Touch.
