  • It was such a great decision for us to go in, actually see and touch and experience the spa for ourselves.

    - Teresa Cole

  • Our Optima is also much quieter than our previous spa. Very easy to maintain as well. Would recommend to anyone looking for a very high quality spa.

    - Tanner Family

  • The most important part of our purchasing process was going into the dealer and getting a real idea of what the best options were for us.

    - Michael C.

  • I went through the Yellow Pages for Spa Dealers and went to them and the spas didn't compare, they didn't compare at all.

  • About
  • Staff
  • Services

The Great Escape started in 1971 as a small, one-man company selling pool supplies door-to-door south of Chicago. Today, over forty years later, our modest one-man business has grown into the largest home leisure retailer in the Midwest.

Over the years, we've remained a family-run business, and that's something we're very proud of. In fact, the same folks who once walked door-to-door in our early years are the same ones who own and operate our Great Escape stores today.

We love the products we sell because they bring joy to the people they buy them. Many of our sales members are certified by Sundance so we can give you all the information you need to make the very best decision.

Come find us in the Edens Shopping Plaza, next to Carson Pirie Scott. You won’t be disappointed!
Here in Wilmette, we’ve truly got a ton of experience across the board. Between Mickey (patio), Ian (pools), Wayne (fitness) and Doug (spas/fitness), we’ve got over 15 years each of retail experience to help match you with the perfect product. 

Our Outstanding Staff

Doug Pearson — Store Manager

Doug Pearson is the Manager at The Great Escape in Wilmette. He's worked for the company for 10 years now. Along with an MBA from Northwestern, he's studied a thing or two about spas, like Sundance Spas and fitness, so they’re his product specialties. It’s really great to be able to represent the top brand in any category, like Sundance in spas. Not only that, we sell them at the lowest price in the nation and get to hear back from customers how much these products have truly impacted the their quality of life. Fun fact: customers say he looks like Terry Bradshaw. Come on in and tell him what you think of his celebrity doppelganger.


Mickey Simon — Store Manager

Mickey Simon is the Manager at the Wilmette The Great Escape. He is in his 16th year at The Great Escape and received a bachelor’s degree from the University of South Florida. He says the best part of his job is meeting different people every day and helping them find exactly what they want or need for their situation. When they come back and tell him how well the party went or how happy they are with everything they’ve bought over the years, that is satisfying.


What makes The Great Escape unique? We’ve got different product categories for the different seasons of the year. This makes our business model much more competitive than stand alone stores who have to keep their in-season prices high to cover the cost of overhead in the off season. So when you come to our store, you know you’re going to get the lowest price. The Great Escape has been around for over 45 years because it hires sales professionals with experience.
