►    Customer Feedback:  We received the following email from Grace C.:  “I love the store and all the helpful advice and friendly staff.  I’ve recommended you to 2 new customers this year and they were amazed at the service you provided.  (I wasn’t surprised)  I’ll be in soon to start purchasing for the pool opening this year and as always, it’s a pleasure to visit your store.”

►    Advertising changes on Sunday, August 17:  “Final Clearance” . But specials and everything else continues.

►    Three people found us on Yelp last week, one looked for directions.

►    In response to your requests, I have removed mil coating thickness from the Swimline cover page, and the sample tags.  I replaced that with fabric weight.  That should make comparisons between Swimline and Robelle/Target easier for you.

►    We are adding a new style one piece maple cue, just in 57” at $24.79; to give you a price point between the ramin wood one for $11.99 and the good one at $34.99.

►    A note from Marquis Spas:  “We do use different ozone units on the three different lines of spas.  All are CD ozonators. The output levels are different, coinciding with their price differential.  The Celebrity ozonators have an output range of 40-50 and the E-Series and Signatures have output ranges 50-70.  The design of the E and Sig. units are different, but the output is the same.”

►    All new jokes, courtesy of Stephanie:

–        A person with six children or a person with $6 million; who is better satisfied?  Why the person with six children of course, because the one with $6 million will always want more.

–        One winter morning, an employee explained why he had shown up for work 45 minutes late.  “It was so slippery out that for every step I took ahead; I slipped back two.”  The boss eyed him suspiciously. “Oh yeah, then how did you ever get here?!”  “I finally gave up” said the employee, “and started for home.”
