How do you help your customers?

By allowing people to relive old memories of things they either had or remember maybe their grandparents having. Also by bringing some comedy with some pretty dorky and also “not so PG rated” findings!

What is your business’s relationship with the city of Akron and Akronites?

We are located in Akron. I personally went to The University of Akron, have lived and worked in Akron since 2012m and now have a business here!

How do you see your business growing/evolving into the future?

I can see such a bright future at the shop just because of the pure love and passion we have in what we do. It’s enjoyable, which is something everyone needs during these times!
