Meet Our Team

Jimmy Titone

Hi, I’m Jimmy Titone and I’m the manager at The Great Escape Peoria. I’ve worked for The Great Escape for 20 years now, and while I work in all areas of the store, my favorite department is patio furniture. There are so many possibilities to transform your backyard into another living space! I love the products we sell because they are just plain fun, and they make people happy. We don’t really sell any life necessities, so many people have put off buying that new hot tub or pool until they could afford it.

The best part of my job is watching people get excited when they make their purchase and it gives me joy to help them achieve that dream. To make a really great customer shopping experience, I try to really listen. I want to help you buy something you really want, not something I like. You’re making a long term investment and I want you to be happy with your purchase.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time with my wife and kids at home in our hot tub. When time allows, we also enjoy quality family time traveling, especially to Disney World.

Welcome to The Great Escape, your big toy store for the home. We’ve got everything you want to make your neighbors jealous. At The Great Escape in Peoria, we boast one of the largest outdoor pool displays available. When you visit us, you’ll be able to get an even better picture of what your pool will look like in your own backyard. It’s the only one of it’s kind in the Midwest!

Come visit us at the corner of War Memorial Drive and Rt. 6, in the same shopping center as Home Depot and Gander Mountain.
