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.
