    Sounded to me like they lost their lease and took it as an omen to GTHO.

    Marina complex is under new ownership and raised rents significantly on everyone there. PDC isn't the only business there that can't afford the new rent.

    Sad face. We really liked them and were planning a trip this summer to Pompano.

    Not only were they the best shop in the area, they were one of the best I've ever used. :(

    Sounds like they are blaming competitors.

    Is South Florida Dive HQ going to be affected in the same way or are they the house operation for Sands Harbor? Have 2 trips scheduled down there this year. Sad to see Pompano close, it was one of the best shops I’ve ever been in.

    That's really too bad. It's been a few years, but I really enjoyed my experiences with PDC
