The Aardvark Story
Georgia native Charles Pharr, Jr., better known as Mr. Aardvark, began his career operating his family-owned thrift store in 1994, selling mostly used furniture. It was not long before he fell in love with the craftsmanship, beauty, uniqueness, long-lasting quality, and increasing value of antique furniture — the type of furniture he wanted for himself and for others to enjoy.
In 1997, Charles decided to pursue his passion full time and Aardvark Antiques was born. Encouraged by three years of success and great demand from many of his repeat customers, Charles opened a second Aardvark store in 2001. Aardvark, Jr. was born a year later, carrying unique garden accents and architectural pieces.
Known among his friends and patrons for his honesty, trustworthiness, knowledge and friendly customer service, Charles explains the “real” secret behind his business success: “I know that when people purchase something from any of my stores, they leave happy. And, I love making people happy.”
