Chris’ Quote For This Profile:
“You would think I’d be great at pool & darts, considering my family owns a billiard & darts retail store. But we sell hot tubs as well, and I must admit…I’m better at sitting in one of those than I am at shooting pool or darts!”
Office Manager, Swimming Pool Sales Manager
Shirley has been with the company since its start in 1993. She started off being the store’s darts expert and grew into being the most knowledgeable person at the store in pool & spa chemistry. She also is still to this day our top salesperson in both In-Ground & Above Ground Swimming Pools. Shirley does it all! And if you’ve ever been waited on by her, we’re sure you’ll agree her knowledge and candor is something to be appreciated! Thank you, Shirley, for your dedication to this company for the past 25+ years!

Jon Minville…We’re willing to bet NO ONE knows more about hot tubs and how to troubleshoot and fix them than Mr. Minville, here!!!

In 2005, Jon joined our company and took over for Chris Melanson as our lead technician. He is both appreciated and loved by our customers and we wouldn’t be where we are as a company if it wasn’t for Jon. He has the knowledge and experience to service and repair all brands of hot tubs, not just the ones we sell. You’re the man, buddy!

Judy & Bryan Melanson
Judy and Bryan first opened the doors of Pools & Cues & Spas, Too, in Auburn, in 1993. Judy started in the swimming pool industry in 1973 and was co-owner of a successful swimming pool business in another part of Massachusetts until 1991. Bryan was the manager of a large retail chain and an avid pool player who loved everything to do with Billiards. After the two married in 1992, they then decided to form Pools & Cues. Since then, the two have persevered through business’ good times and bad and today, Pools & Cues & Spas, Too is one of the most successful and largest Swimming Pool, Hot Tub, Billiards & Darts retail stores in Massachusetts. They are great people to work for and great people in general!
