The Place

Posted in Dealer Spotlight

Andrea Small 2297Andrea Reedy The place to go for hot tubs in Medina, Ohio is The Place, located at 2377 Medina Road.

Starting in business in 1967, Ray and Donetta Klubnik, were the first Troy-Bilt rototiller dealer in the world.   Ray and Donetta had five children, all of which made their careers in the family business.  

As the second generation took the lead and the market changed, the equipment dealership was sold and The Place expanded into hot tubs, hearth, outdoor cooking, and recently patio furniture.  Their 30,000 square foot facility houses 75 hot tubs, 25 burning fireplaces displays, a wide variety of grills, a nine-bay service shop and warehousing. 

“We make it easy, we are the experts, and we offer the best brands. We aren’t satisfied until our clients are!” states Andrea Reedy, President.  She knows that most of her business comes from repeat clients or referrals for these very reasons. “We educate the client” says Andrea. “We give them the tools to make their decision, supporting them before and after their purchase.   Our aftercare program includes Spa Classes where they learn to minimize maintenance and maximize enjoyment!”

The Place focuses on the WELLNESS aspect of hot tubs and swim spas.  Andrea will be speaking at the Global Center for Heath Innovation during the Global Wellness Day Celebration, in June, and the Get Fit Healthy Living Expo, in December, on the health benefits of warm water.  Both events are being held in Cleveland Ohio.  “People need to know that hot tubs aren’t just for relaxation and romance.  Swim spas offer so much more than swimming pools.  Hot tubs and swim spas are wonderful venues for exercise and health improvement.  The benefits of adding warm water to a wellness lifestyle are amazing.  Individuals, families, and communities can improve health and happiness by ‘getting themselves into hot water’ “laughs Andrea.

Another thing that makes Andrea and The Place so successful is her willingness to take a hard look at what they are doing and how it’s being done.   “Like an automobile dealership, we recondition and sell ‘Certified Pre-Owned’units.”  This is one of the many ideas she gets from her brother Ray Klubnik, President of Hot Tub Liquidators in Las Vegas.  “Ray worked in the family business for twenty years and then bravely opened his own store in Las Vegas.  We are very grateful he brought in spas 25 years ago and for his ideas today.” Andrea says with a smile.

The Place has been with Nordic for 25 of their 50 years in business.  “This year is quite a year of celebration for us with our 50th Anniversary!” exclaims Andrea.  “Nordic is easy to work with and they make a great product.  Warranty issues are extremely low.  I know when we sell a Nordic; we are going to have a very satisfied client!”

What advice would Andrea give to other dealers?  “Continue learning and refining your systems!” 

Join Andrea and her Sales Team as they host a Nordic Truckload Sale Event from Thursday through Saturday, June 15 – 17, 2017!  Stop in and get into some hot water with The Place and Nordic!
