  • 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

  • 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 check us out at the corner of US-30 and Taft St. in Merrillville, 1.5 miles west of I-65.

Here at the Merrillville location, we’ve got a full-time sales team with over 80 years of combined experience and it shows: we really try to give everyone that comes through the door the best customer experience each and every time. But don’t just think it’s only our fulltime staff that’s awesome, our part-time crew is just as friendly and well-trained to assist with any needs, as well.
