PcPools Reports Increase in 'Staycations' for Small Business Owners June 16, 2011 03:33 PM

St. Paul, MN June 16th 2011 - Pc Pools, one of America’s leading direct marketers of above ground pools and pool supplies for residential and commercial pool owners reports that according to the 2011 Business Vacation Monitor only 46% of US small business owners plan on taking a summer vacation this year. This number has declined significantly in recent years and is leading to a continued vacation trend called a 'Staycation.'


Marketing Director Ted Robinson had this to say, "For small business owners, like all Americans, taking a week long family vacation is a luxury that's simply not always feasible.  Increased travel costs and the rise in gas prices make it harding than ever to take a week off.  Additionally, pressure on small business owners to turn a profit is higher than ever, making it difficult to simply drop everything and leave their business for a week." 


Robinson continued, "This increased demand at work has put stress on the American small business owner and has lead to an increase in 'Staycations.'  The premise behind a Staycation is to allow a homeowner to escape the rigors of the day by setting up a vacation in their own backyard by buying an above ground pool.  The affordability combined with the increased leisure time spent with ones family is leading to more small business owners taking the Staycation route with an above ground pool.  Due to this we at Pc Pools anticipate to see a continued increase in above ground pools setups for some time."
