Local pool store offering huge discounts

Pool Store offering discounts

Ty’s Pooles – Hillsborough County – Friday, 8.16.19

It is not standard practice here at Tampa News Force to offer unsolicited advertising in the form of a news story, but we recently found out about this swimming pool store north of Raymond James Stadium offering ridiculous discounts and it’s been a very hot summer here in the luxurious paradise we call Tampa Bay. So we thought maybe this is something that could benefit our loyal readers who deserve some relief from the relentless heat and humidity that has turned this God-forsaken waking nightmare into even more of a post-apocalyptic hellscape than usual. Also, the owner of the pool store paid me under the table and my editors have no idea because they will publish this without even reading it.

Ty Poole, owner of Ty’s Pooles in Carrollwood is having a sale to reduce inventory of some of their less popular swimming pool options. I asked why that would be necessary, since I assume that the inventory for a company that sells swimming pools would consist of a collection of blue print-style plans that they take to the customer’s home and use to install the pool on their property, and not a warehouse full of completely constructed swimming pools. Ty stared at me for an uncomfortably long time, whimpered, and said, “You have no idea how the swimming pool sales game is played”, before running out the back door into an absolutely enormous warehouse.

Anyway, here are the pools they have for sale…
