Tucked away in east Akron, The Bomb Shelter has been showing our
customers how to fit the objects of yesterday into today’s world
since 2011. This retro, antique superstore opened with 18,000
square feet of warehouse space and a vision of finding the unique
treasures we love and bringing them to the public.
We are about giving a
second, or third, life to the things from our childhoods. With a
collection of items from over 1,000 different places around the
world, there is bound to be a reminisce of your youth. Our space
is arranged for viewing and engaging idea making— it’s a
vintage museum where everything is for sale! We focus on salvaging
and saving old buildings and houses so our customers can be
inspired to re-use and re-purpose for today.
The Bomb Shelter is a
place to relive the last century and carry its treasures into the
next so… together we may bring the past to a whole new
generation. Our guests will chuckle, stir memories, be inspired
into creativity and be educated on the benefits of reusing,
purposing, and up-cycling… all at The Bomb Shelter Store.
