Pinch A Penny Opens New Store in Houston, Texas
Swimming Pool Retail and Services Franchise Adds Newest Location
January 31, 2023 // Franchising.com // Houston, TX - Pinch A Penny opened its newest store in the Memorial area of Houston on Friday, January 27. The new store is located in the Lantern Lane Shopping Center at 12534 Memorial Dr., Houston, Texas 77024.
The Pinch A Penny Pool Patio Spa is owned by Houston native and resident James Vossler. Vossler and the franchise have been offering pool repair service to local customers since April 2022, and the storefront location will now be open to customers to shop for all their pool care and maintenance needs.
Before coming to Pinch A Penny, Vossler spent nearly 40 years in the commercial printing industry, starting as a young employee before eventually owning his own printing company. He primarily worked with large companies or advertising agencies specializing in B2B sales. His companies produced print collateral such as catalogs and annual reports for local and national clients.
Vossler decided to make the career transition shifting his passion for service and problem solving to the pool industry. To help serve the pools within a three-mile radius of the new store, Vossler recently hired a store manager with 24 years of experience in the industry, while his wife, Margot, will handle the store’s administrative and financial duties.
“I really believe the Memorial area is a perfect spot for a new Pinch A Penny store,” said James Vossler. “So many homeowners have pools and are in need of our services. There is no other business in the area that can offer everything Pinch A Penny does. Our experience, knowledge and superior service really separates us from anyone else in the market.”
In addition to pool supply retail, Pinch A Penny offers ongoing maintenance and repair services, including water testing and pool service. The new store is open seven days a week with operating hours from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Monday-Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Saturday, and 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.
“Memorial is a market with many pool owners who will greatly benefit from the services Pinch A Penny provides,” said Troy Lindbeck, Vice President of Operations for Pinch A Penny. “James knows the market well and it was the only location he considered for a store. He will bring a strong local presence to the store’s ownership.”
