►    If someone asks you in May, Are the pool supplies on sale now?  YES!  There are pool supplies on sale throughout the store.  Just look for the gray or yellow signs and tags.  Is the Baquacil on sale?  YES!  Just look for …..

There are a great many pool supplies on sale now.  While not as many as in April; a lot more than will be in June.  So the best time to buy is RIGHT NOW!

►    The most important Pool School is Wednesday, May 3:  Introduction to Pool Maintenance.  Tell everyone about it, particularly those who appear to not know a great deal about their pool.

►    DO NOT put chemical boxes on their side or upside down.  That makes the cover come off and spill the chemicals inside    the box and outside.  Which is huge work let alone dangerous, to clean up.

►    A very nice lady talked to me in the store Sunday.  Very nice because she spent $16,000 on patio furniture, she shops here regularly, and she was buying more that day.  She specifically mentioned Mia, Patrick, and Allison. Great job to all of you.

►    From Stephanie:

Congrats to Elaine who won the parking lot snow bank challenge!  Thank you to everyone who participated.

►    From Anne-Marie: Saturday, April 29th is the first free lunch of the season sponsored by Eric Gilbert – Tropitone Furniture.

I realize there are a lot of coupons being used, but please remember that most of them require a customer’s name on the receipt in order for them to receive their Reward$/Sense points.  Also, we have added computer numbers for 4 quarts of Liquid Solar (#8118), and Pool Opening Kits (#3557) to the little register books.

►    Humor in Uniform by Reader’s Digest:

During my class at the Defense Language Institute, a student asked another student why she chose the Air Force over the Navy.  “Simple,” said Air Force.  “Whatever goes up must come down.  But whatever goes down doesn’t necessarily have to come up.”
