Richmond, Virginia (PRWEB) December 28, 2013
In 1975, David Shoaf saw the need to expand his wood stove business to include other products that warmed and relaxed people on cold winter days. At that time almost all Hot Tubs were manufactured on the West Coast, so to avoid exorbitant shipping costs he started manufacturing Spas and Hot Tubs right here in Richmond Virginia. By manufacturing them to East Coast standards they quickly became a premium brand, built to the highest standards. Over the years the products received many awards and much recognition from all over the world. The addition of products like a full line of Swim Spas and several complete lines of Spas, gave Barefoot Spas more choices than most on the East Coast.
In 2001, David was diagnosed with cancer and knew he did not have much time to realize his dream of providing a premium quality spa at a wholesale price. David knew the consumer did not need a dealer or the markup associated with a dealer overhead. He was a pioneer in our business in many ways. One of the last things David did before his death was to completely redesign the entire Barefoot Spa and Swim spa lineup into the premium molds we still use today.
We at Barefoot Spas are committed to living up to the standards set by Mr. Shoaf. We remember the dream he had of everyone being able to buy a premium quality spa at a wholesale price. Over the past 39 years this brand has come a long way from the dream of our founder, to the reality of one of the best and most complete line of Spas and Swim Spas available in the world.
