Poolwerx‘s West Lakes franchise has been named South Australia’s best pool shop for the fifth year in a row at the South Australian Swimming Pool and Spa Association (SPASA) Awards.

The franchisees, Peter and Heather Clarke, also took out the silver medal for Technician of the Year, making this year’s awards their 10th and 11th respective SPASA Awards since they began operating in 1993.

Peter said the store has continued to experience solid growth despite this year being the toughest economically for many small business owners. “We have maintained steady growth of about 15 to 20 per cent each year and forecast this trend to continue in the coming year.”

“The business growth has come from building a strong and honest relationship with all of our clients – whether they are a regular, casual or walk-in to our retail store. Our honest approach has allowed us to gain the trust of our clients and repeat business,” he said.
