A swimming pool supply company will splash into Columbia County next month as it expands into Evans.
Leslie’s Poolmart Inc., an Arizona-based retailer specializing in pool and spa supplies, is adding a store at 4324 Washington Road, next to Five Guys Burgers and Fries.
A soft opening for the store will be held during the first week in March, with a grand opening planned for the week of March 22, Lyndsay Clements, the company’s director of marketing and strategic planning, said in an e-mail.
“We try to place our stores where the pool owners are and see an opportunity with this new area,” she said.
The new store is about 2,400 square feet and will employ three to four people, Clements said.
A Leslie’s store at 2825 Washington Road in Augusta will remain open, Clements said.
