We are a 60-year-old family business spanning three generations and very little has changed about why and how we do business. One of our primary goals in what we sell and the service we provide is to bring people together; husbands and wives, mothers and daughters, fathers and sons, grandparents with grandkids, and families with friends. Be it pools, spas, or gathering sets, all provide an environment for families and friends to come together in fun and fellowship in an environment that promotes communication.

In the age of the internet and the couch potato, when Americans feel more alone than ever, our products have never been more relevant than they are today, or more meaningful to each family that does business with us. As a family business we understand the value of life long relationships and the need to nurture and enjoy them. Christmas Time is an obvious recognition of these values. Christmas Time at the Pool Place was born 24 years ago when Tom May asked his wife Peg to turn our otherwise dormant off-season pool stores into a Christmas wonderland. He could not have bargained for what she would do and how well she and her Christmas Time crew would do it. Christmas Time was very quick to become a seasonal institution and event in Chattanooga and Knoxville. And rather than lining boxes of ornaments and lights along walls and rows in a sterile presentation, vast amounts of time and energy were put into each unique vignette, as if that setting were our own home, knowing that it would become some family's celebration of the season. Christmas time is a very special time of year, one that we celebrate by coming together with those that we love. Christmas Time at the Pool Place recognizes both the warmth and the care that we all feel for this Holiday season and we work hard to capture its spirit in our stores. With over 25 different gorgeously themed vignettes and over 125 unique, high-quality permanent trees, there is no other store you need to visit for your holiday needs. You will also find that not only our product, our spirit, and our presentation sets us apart from the mass, but our staff and attention to you when you are visiting our stores gives us distinction. With custom designers on staff at all times, we can work closely with you to bring about the perfect theme for your home. And with knowledgeable sales staff handy to answer any questions about our vast selection of high-quality permanent trees, you are not left guessing why one may cost more than another. You will not find a staff so devoted to matching you with the perfect product to mark the holidays for you and your loved ones. From our families to yours, have a wonderful Christmas season!
