Lou and Hy's is the first in our Vintage Akron line, printed on tees so soft and comfortable you'll never want to take them off.

Shop Made in Akron

I Once Lived in Akron. Really.

Guaranteed to start a conversation.

Shop Made in Akron

16 S. Highland Ave, Where It All Started

Way back in early 2009, we had a simple idea:

Start a store called Made in Akron and fill it with the best locally made products.

With the dedication of amazing people like Liz Tyran, Wayne Beck, Sarah Gorring and a host of talented others, they brought Made in Akron to life.

Without them, we wouldn't be here today.

This photo was taken in the spring of 2010, when Senator Sherrod Brown stopped by the store to thank Liz and Wayne for their efforts.
