Ann & Hope's ship has come in through the form of sales of discounted curtain rods and canopies. Ann & Hope sells discounted window and shower curtains, blinds, shades, rugs, and other bath and window accessories at about 10 Curtain & Bath Outlet locations in Connecticut, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island. The company also operates an e-commerce site. The regional curtain and bath retailer buys in bulk and sells its merchandise at 20% to 50% off department store prices. Founded in 1953, Ann & Hope was named after a ship that was lost at sea off the coast of Block Island, Rhode Island, in 1806.
