Meet Our Team

Tim Schopper

Hello there, my name is Tim Schopper and I'm the manager at our Gurnee location. I've been with The Great Escape for 12 years.

I love my job because we carry high quality, great looking, long lasting products at the best price in the industry. The best part of my job is having and creating repeat customers who have come to appreciate our advice to handle their needs. No product or request is too small and all my staff is willing to pitch in as needed.

In my free time you can find me enjoying sports. I'm a huge Bears, Cubs and Bulls fan!

Here at The Great Escape in Gurnee, you’re visiting not only the largest dealer of name brand pools, spas, patio furniture and billiards in the industry, but also a store with an extremely experienced staff. The Gurnee store boasts over 75 years of experience in the industry, and we put it to use to help you find exactly what you’re looking for.

We like to get to know our customers and keep them coming back for years and years. Let us show you how we can offer big box prices with that mom and pop store care and attention to service. Come find us at the corner of Grand and Almond, a half mile west of Gurnee Mills.
