Happy Summer Everyone! What a beautiful summer we’re having, lots of sun and warm weather!
We want to thank everyone for their support this summer. COVID-19 has certainly changed how most of us do many things in our daily lives and we’re so thankful that through it all, we’ve been able to continue to serve your pool, hot tub and billiard needs and that you’ve continued to support us.
As you know by listening to the news and seeing what’s going on at the local grocery stores, product availability is hit and miss this summer and that’s happening in the pool industry as well. While in Vermont we’re fortunate that our state is opening back up and we’re moving on with a new “normal” many other states are not as fortunate as we have been. Due to this and raw material supply issues many of the products we’re so used to finding on our shelves or being able to easily order are very hard to find and stock right now. Our manufacturers and suppliers are working with severely reduced staff, many of them, following their state guidelines and in an effort to keep their team members safe are working with only 1 or 2 people in any dept at any given time, this includes the shipping department. We know that many are working 24 hrs a day 7 days a week to try their best to meet demand. A demand that has exploded due to a desire for “Staycations” this year.
They and we are doing our absolute best to get you the products that you want and need and we ask for your continued patience and understanding as so much is out of our control at this time. We are all working together through these unprecedented times.
Thank you and we wish you all a healthy and happy summer!
