DIY franchise closing in CSRA; other location remains

An Evans franchisee decided to close up shop after three years in business.

April Barbin and Lindsay Gay posted on Facebook that they were closing their AR Workshop. According to their website, they are cousins by marriage and best friends.

AR Workshop opened originally in the shopping center outside the Riverwood Subdivision late in the last decade and the owners sold in April and June of 2021. https://augustabusinessdaily.com/evans-diy-business-sold-to-new-owners/

They are located next door to Rooted Coffeehouse at 3116 William Few Parkway and offer hands-on classes for creating custom, charming home decor from raw materials.

They provide an instructor-led workshop and custom wood plank signs, framed signs, canvas pillows, round signs, lazy Susan’s, centerpiece boxes, canvas tote bags, and more! AR Workshop offers theme nights like birthday parties, girls’ nights out, team building, and other group functions.

Nailed It DIY, an Evans competitor, opened in the fall of 2022 across from the Lady A Park in Evans.

The North Augusta AR Workshop will remain open. They are owned by a different franchisee, a familiar North Augusta businesswoman and her daughter. Janet Baumgardner and her husband, Jeff have owned Comfort Keepers for about 20 years in North Augusta.

Janet and her daughter, Jessica Boyd own and operate the North Augusta AR Workshop on 434 Georgia Avenue in the same strip center as Your Pie in the heart of North Augusta.
