Pie Shop to Open Soon in Augusta
Last week, Colleen Hall turned in her notice after working as a radiation therapist for 25 years.
“I’ve been treating cancer patients for this long, now I care for people’s bodies in a different way,” she said.
By feeding them pie, of course. Hall started selling her pies under the name “The Pie Hole” in Augusta last year and is now getting ready to open a brick-and-mortar pie shop of the same name. The shop will be located at 3604 Veranda Dr, next to Boardroom Clothing Company.
Hall said she is aiming to open the shop in mid-July.
“There’s not a dedicated pie shop in Augusta,” Hall said. “I got really inspired by that reality…it’s become very popular in bigger cities.”
Hall’s pies and breads are set apart by her use of freshly-milled organic wheat. The pies range from savory to sweet—Hall tells people she does dinner and dessert—and the Augusta Market mainstay has found most success with the lemon berry pie.
“It was our biggest hit throughout the whole summer last year,” she said. “People are already looking for it again.”
The small shop will be designed primarily for people to come in and out quickly, although there will be seating for around 10 people. Hall said it will have a “coffee shop feel,” and she plans to serve coffee from Buona Caffe.
