The company employs approximately 3,500 associates across the country during the swimming pool season.
"Leslie's is proud to be opening new store locations this year to serve our customers and add jobs throughout the country," said Larry Hayward, CEO, Leslie's Poolmart, Inc. "Our new stores will offer customers an expansive selection of swimming pool supplies, pool equipment and recreational items. Leslie's associates serve as a valuable resource for swimming pool owners and provide detailed, knowledgeable information needed for their pool care."
All Leslie's stores offer free water tests in store. Testing the pool water ensures a clean, clear pool. Customers are encouraged to take a sample of their water into a local Leslie's store to get complete test results, which helps to ensure the water is balanced on all aspects.
