Award-Winning Imagine Backyard Living Announces Grand Opening of New East Valley Factory Outlet Location

Imagine Backyard Living, the # 1 volume single store Jacuzzi Hot Tubs and Sundance Spas dealer in the world is excited to announce the grand opening of its first factory outlet showroom. This expansive location will open on March 2, 2018, and is located off the I-10 between Ray Road and Chandler Boulevard in Phoenix. Visitors to the new concept will encounter a huge selection of new 2018 hot tubs and swim spas. Plus 2017 and 2018 factory overstocks, Red Tags, and even pre-owned models, which will all be at outlet clearance prices.

“This is an exciting opportunity for us to be in a location close to the East Valley that has easy freeway access from Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, Gilbert, Ahwatukee, San Tan and Maricopa,” said David Ghiz, President, and Owner of Imagine Backyard Living. “It’s an easy drive from Sun Lakes, Queen Creek, and Gold Canyon as well. It was important for us to find the right spot so we can make the incredible product from Jacuzzi, Sundance, and Hydropool available to a broader base of customers. But not only that, we have made arrangements with these legendary manufactures to use this location as a factory outlet. Not only will we have a huge selection new models, but we will assist the manufacturers with clearing out factory overstocks and Red Tags so the discounts will be incredible” says Ghiz. “Both locations will have access to the inventory so it will go very fast. We are suggesting customers take the model they want when they see it so they don’t lose out”.

“After the Grand Opening festivities, we are considering only being open Fridays thru Mondays so we can have the middle of the week to deliver what was sold and restock the store with new product”, says Ghiz. “This is an entirely new concept for the industry and we will have to be nimble so we can meet our goal of providing an exceptional experience for our customers and having the hot tubs and swim spas they want when they want them.”

Founded in 2014, Imagine Backyard Living has experienced rapid growth and success, quickly establishing itself as one of the most innovative outdoor living retailers in the U.S. The company’s commitment to excellence and creating an outstanding customer experience has been recognized with several prestigious awards from Jacuzzi and Sundance Spas, the industry’s two leading brands. Imagine Backyard Living received the coveted Presidents Award — which recognizes the Number One Single-Store Dealer in the World in terms of sales — from Jacuzzi in 2015, 2016 and 2017, and from Sundance in 2016 and 2017. These consecutive honors are unprecedented among dual dealers of Jacuzzi and Sundance. Imagine Backyard Living is the first dealer to ever win the President’s Award from both brands in the same year. The company has also received the Exceptional Customer Service Award and the Gold Award for ranking in the top 10 percent of sales worldwide from both Jacuzzi and Sundance.

Imagine Backyard Living’s success has been fueled by a team of experienced and dedicated professionals. David Ghiz, who has been in the industry for nearly 35 years, previously worked with his two brothers to build Paddock Pools into the largest pool and backyard living company in the U.S. After selling Paddock Pools in 2005, David selected some of the best members of the team to form the core of Imagine Backyard Living. With these employees’ knowledge, experience and commitment to the customer, as well as Imagine Backyard Living’s partnerships with several highly respected brands, the company is poised to continue growing and building its reputation as a leader in the hot tub and outdoor living industry.

The new Imagine Backyard Living showroom will be located at 14647 S. 50th St., Suite B-150, Phoenix, Ariz. 85044 (next to At Home Fitness). For more information on the grand opening, please call Imagine Backyard Living at 480-607-3529.
