54 Year-Old Pittsburgh Pool & Hot Tub Company Continues Retail Growth
Coming April 2021, Valley Pool & Spa will be adding it’s 1st Fayette County location in Uniontown. This marks the 8th location, and the 3rd in 3 years.
PITTSBURGH, March 12, 2021 – Retail isn’t dead when it comes to Pittsburgh’s own Valley Pool & Spa. While some retailers are downsizing, specialty retail continues to find a place, especially when it’s tied to experiences. That is what’s driving the continued success and growth at Valley Pool & Spa, a proud operating division of Phoenix-based Leslie’s. The new Uniontown store will raise the bar by expanding the in-store experiences that customers have known to love, and will give pool & hot tub owners in Fayette county and parts of West Virginia a chance to experience Valley for themselves.
The new Valley Pool & Spa Uniontown store will be located in the just-built Beesontown Shoppes on West Main Street (US-40). The center is co-tenanted by Starbucks, Jersey Mikes, Primanti Bros, AT&T, Sports Clips, and Mattress Warehouse.
As an award winning staple in Pittsburgh and within the pool & spa industry since 1967, with the original location still operating and thriving on Route 30 in North Versailles. Corinne Kraft purchased the business from her grandparents in 1987, and continues to oversee and lead Valley to this day as a Senior Vice President for Leslie’s & Valley. “The team of passionate, well educated and dedicated employees is what gives Valley the edge of continued growth, allowing the business to expand for its loyal customer base.” says Kraft. Valley will now expand to over 70 full-time employees.
“Our employees are real experts in the field and we love to share our knowledge with pool & spa owners.” says Eric Cassidy, VP of Sales & Operations for Valley. “The new Uniontown store will allow us to enter a portion of Western PA that our customers have wanted us to be in for years, and this will also allow us to extend our reach into the WV market. We hope this brings joy to a lot of current, as well as future pool & spa owners” says Cassidy. “Our team can’t wait to meet new faces and help them with their pool or spa ownership.”
Along with the new store brings the expansion of Swim Spas and the exclusive MyLife Hot Tubs line. “Although aboveground pools, water treatment products, and pool supplies are the core of our business, we’re really excited to continue focusing on the growth of health and wellness products like our hot tubs and swim spas” says Cassidy. “Pools & Hot Tubs have been an outlet of relaxation for folks during the pandemic, allowing more families to be able to social distance at home and still have a good time.”
Valley is a partner of many local organizations in the areas they serve; from youth sports teams, to law enforcement, to birthday parties for kids via Beverly’s Birthdays. “I’m ecstatic to get to work on supporting local groups within the Uniontown community” says Kristin Poppa-Rosel, Marketing Director for Valley. “We work hard to ensure Valley gives back as much as we can…which is our way to show thanks to our customers and communities.” says Poppa-Rosel.
“Myself and CBRE was proud to have represented Valley Pool & Spa on their new space at Beesontown Shoppes, a prime development in the growing Uniontown market. We are confident they will have great success at this location.” comments Michelle Stewart, Vice President of Retail for CBRE.
“When we set-out to develop this shopping center, never did we imagine that we would be able to garner such an incredible tenant mix. Valley Pool & Spa is certainly an amazing coup for both the development and Uniontown.” says Herky Pollock, Owner Beesontown Shoppes and Executive Vice President for CBRE.
