►    We were just listed as the number four Marquis dealer in the Northeastern United States, based on hot tubs purchased from them since January 1, 2015.  The other dealers on the list are from Virginia, Pennsylvania, and Maryland.  Congratulations. We have become a leading dealer this year, after 14 years not being a leading dealer.  Great job.
