When Best Pool Service moved north on Lake Avenue in St. James it , but signs placed in its windows indicate it will soon be filled – by another pool store.
Signs in the windows that read "Empty Store Coming Soon" as late as the end of last week have been replaced by ones that read "Coming Soon Discount Pool Supply."
No information on Discount's opening date is available.
Best moved to 543 Lake Avenue, across the street from St. James Elementary. While the move began late last year the store has yet to open its doors in its new spot.
Owner James Best said in an interview with Smithtown Patch in November of last year that and business was continuing to increase.
“I do think it’s going to be good for us, we outgrew this place three years ago,” Best said. “I think moving will take us to the next level, this way we’ll have a better view for the customer to look at because we’re kind of cramped here.”
