We first opened the doors of Lake & Local at 104 S. Main Street in downtown Greensboro, Georgia, on January 4, 2022. Our building is huge and includes the beautiful gated palm garden, encompassing nearly 5,000 square feet of space.
We have put a lot of blood, sweat, and tears into this building and garden, and have loved being here, but it's time to make some changes.
Over the past 15 months in business, we have become known for our fun events - charcuterie classes, candle-making, ladies night events, game nights, various craft workshops, and so much more. Retail has become secondary.
In January of this year, we shifted our retail to one side of our storefront and moved our workshop space to the other side, instead of using the back room. We've had a few workshops in the front of the building and it has worked out very well.
We knew we needed to make some changes, though. The building and garden have become too much for us to manage. Through a lot of prayer, we have decided to move our business to a smaller location and give up the garden.
Honestly, it was a really hard decision. We absolutely love our current building and the garden, and have thoroughly enjoyed breathing life into it and seeing the community enjoy it. Now that we have made the decision, however, we are very excited about what the future holds for Lake & Local and our amazing customers.
As of June 2023, our new location will be right down the road, walking distance from our current building, at 111 N. Main Street, conveniently located across the street from The Yesterday Cafe.
We'll turn the front of our building into a workshop space with a small retail section in the back. Our primary offering will be our classes and workshops, which, to be quite honest, is our favorite thing about our business.
We will still carry products representative of our name, particularly products that are made in-house: shirts, tumblers, Lake Oconee merch, UGA merch, Greensboro merch, candles, and wine, along with seasonal items on occasion.
We look forward to growing alongside you, and sincerely hope you understand and respect our decision and support us through these changes.
