Meet Our Team

Dan Arthur

Hi there, I’m Dan Arthur and I’m the manager at the Algonquin The Great Escape. My 15 years with The Great Escape comes with several certificates of training from Brunswick Billiards, Jacuzzi and Sundance Spas, among others. My specialty is water products. I am very well-versed in pools and hot tubs.

I love what we sell, because it’s the cream of the crop. With big names like Brunswick, Jacuzzi, Aqua Leader, Tropitone, and Precor, we can sell proudly and with confidence. The fact that we service all of our products is a huge benefit to customers. Between our quality products and great service, we have generated a phenomenal repeat business and that brings me great satisfaction.

The best part of my job is getting to talk with (and hopefully helping) a wide variety of people. And that’s how I make the experience great for my customers. I take great satisfaction when I can actually solve a problem for a customer, or at least put them on the right path to get their problem solved and they really appreciate it.

In my spare time, I enjoy playing guitar and singing, hitting the links, watching hockey (or should I say, "Hawkey". Go Hawks!) and spending time with my family.

What makes the Great Escape special?
Here at the Algonquin store, we think it’s our 48+ year track record of being the best and biggest leisure retailer in the nation. We have the best, most well known products in every category we sell, all at the lowest prices.

And what makes our store unique? We have a store with over 50,000 square feet and an indoor pool and play park! Not only that, but with a combined staff experience of over 75 years in the industry, we’re ready to put our collective know-how to work for you. We are at 2421 S. Randall Rd, exactly 1 mile south of The Algonquin Commons, ½ mile north of Huntley Rd.
