►    Customer Feedback:  The following email was received from customer David C. in Lancaster, MA:  “It is possible I sound like a broken record (how’s that for dating myself), but you guys rock!  I did indeed open the January message, thank you very much.  So many retailers send tons of mail which should be trapped and flagged as spam emails.  Your mail will never be treated as spam on  my system.  Every chance I get, most recently being yesterday, I tell people Seasonal Specialty Store on Route 101A in Amherst is my “local” pool store because I am a valued customer, not some schmoe who walks into your store.  The 30 or so miles between Lancaster, MA and you guys is worth the trip every time.  Dennis and his extended family have me as long as I have this house and this pool.”
