CK Spas is proud to announce it has been inducted into the AQUA 100, an exclusive honor bestowed to just 10 North American pool and spa retailers each year. CK Spas is the first Canadian retailer to be inducted into the Aqua 100.
The AQUA 100, presented by AQUA Magazine, is an industry-leading competition designed to honor excellence in pool and spa retail. In light of the adversity specialty retailers of all kinds have faced over the past decade — the rise of online shopping, the pressure of a recession and now, the global pandemic — the AQUA 100 honors the diamonds of excellence that have not only survived, but thrived, proving once and for all the spirit of brick-and-mortar businesses will carry on.
“It’s quite an achievement to be selected for the AQUA 100,” says AQUA Magazine Executive Editor Scott Webb. “This national competition evaluates each business on a variety of measures, and the blind scoring of the judges ensures a truly worthy winner. It is the highest honor in pool and spa retail.”
The application process was rigorous, requiring entrants to provide detailed information on company history, customer service, store design, digital presence, marketing and community involvement, complete with supporting documents. Applicants were judged by an independent panel of retail experts.
We are beyond thrilled and honored to have been not only inducted into the Aqua 100, but to be the first Canadian retailers to do so. Thank-you to everyone who has supported us and continues to support us through our journey.
We'd like to thank everyone at Hydropool for all of their love and support and standing behind us. The help, knowledge and support everyone offers has been a huge part of our success and we greatly appreciate everyone over there. We are not only proud to sell Hydropool products, but proud to call much of their team family.
