POOL Together to Close in February

Almost six months after its soft opening in July, POOL Together announced it will close its doors on Feb. 5.

The indie co-op was the brain child (and trust fund baby -- at an estimated $3 million) of a California investor, real estate developer and retail consultant, who took over the defunct-Mervyn's on the corner of Main Street and Stapley Drive in Mesa in July. 

Twenty nine merchants who currently occupy the indie co-op space (down from 53 merchants at the marketplace's peak) were given closure notice on Wednesday, reported the East Valley Tribune, and will have until Feb. 13 to vacate.

POOL Together will be open until Feb. 5, Monday through Saturday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., with limited hours during its final days.
