AR Stoneworks celebrated its 2nd anniversary in a big way recently, with complimentary food and drinks, activities for the kids, and special one-day pricing on hot tubs and in-ground pools.
Hundreds came out to see what was new at the outdoor-living store, and for a chance to win some great prizes. While there, they also enjoyed a little Belgard brick oven pizza, as well as products from event sponsors, Chili's, Buffalo Wild Wings, and Budweiser of Clarksville.
Owner, P.J. Shortt took a moment to thank all his sponsors, Five Star Media Group, and most importantly, his customers.
“We have been in business for eight years,” Shortt said. “This is our second year as AR Stoneworks. We basically offer a turnkey solution for your stay-cation area. We do swimming pools, outdoor kitchens, grottoes, waterfalls, fire features, so anything outside-related, we offer it.”
Shortt says, a lot of people don't want to travel right now, they would rather spend the money to make their backyard special.
“The stay-cation trend has become a real niche,” Shortt said. “Also today, we partnered up with Five Star Media Group to end our home makeover giveaway that we have been working on for about three months. I would guess that we had about 300 – 400 people out here today. We are very thankful to all of them, and we're very excited for 2019.”
