POOL Market Place Closing the Doors


 "We loved all the time we spent at POOL together. Like any market place you will find good and bad. We thank POOL together's Brad Weinstock, CEO for giving us the opportunity to grow and be apart of something so great as the POOL. We met many great people and take our experiences and choose to grow with it. It is very unfortunate that POOL together has closed it's doors... the vision was absolutely a fantastic one. We look forward to our future as Desert Valley Gifts..."   ~Jen Compton, 2/06/11
