When Bill Scheff of Great Windows decided to retire from the window treatment business, the first person he approached about purchasing the business was Leo Mesquita. Leo had worked in Maryland as Bill’s manufacturer’s representative for his successful window treatment business. Having worked together for seven years, the two formed a good business relationship. “Whenever I would encounter any type of problem, Leo was my go-to guy at the factory,” says Bill. “He always provided the best possible service to me, and I was confident it would translate to the business.” “When Bill decided to retire, he knew I would want to come to Florida and take over his business,” says Leo. “I have always wanted to own my own business, and I sure wanted to get away from the snow!” So Leo moved to Amelia Island and bought the company in 2013, changing the name to Great Window Shades. “We have professional customer care representatives and we provide custom service for our clients. We come to your home or business, measure your windows, and provide free consultation on various window treatments and their application. We are a full-service company and employ all our own people.” “Whether you’re looking for window shades, wood blinds, vertical blinds, plantation shutters, cornices, remote-controlled shades, or any other alternative window treatment, Great Window Shades has exactly what you need,” states Leo. “We will gladly come to you with samples in hand!” For more information, call (904) 261-3340 or visit
