About JP

JP custom draperies entered the Calgary marketplace 37 years ago. Owned by Don and Kathleen Coombes for 25 of those years, they built an untarnished reputation for excellent customer care and satisfaction, second to none.

JP was acquired by GiCor in December 2009, and Don and Kathleen remain dedicated and determined to offer nothing less than excellence in service and attention to their clients – some of which include three generations of the same family. From concept to completion they pay diligent attention to every detail, ensuring the transformation of each home into a unique statement as the true reflection of the owner.
