Where to Source Window Treatments

We are in the market for window treatments for our home. Want to hear recommendations for quality and good price providers.

1. What's the pro/con of going with a retailer (i.e. Home Depot, The Bay, Blinds To Go) versus buying them off the internet and installing ourselves (selectblindscanada.ca, blinds.ca, blindsgalore.ca, budgetblinds.ca ) Is one route much cheaper than the other? What about choices and selections of brands? Quality of material? How much are installation fee typically from the big retailers?

2. If going with a brick moter store, who would you recommend out of the following? Or are there other ones that is not on this list that's better?
- Home Depot
- Rona
- The Bay
- Lowes
- Sears
- Blinds To Go
- Costco

3. Anyone have experience with service and quality of product from those online distributors? How are their blinds quality compare to name brand (HD, Maxmarr, etc.)? Are there ones I shall stay away from?

Thanks for helping!!!
