History of Made in Akron

From 2009-2010, Made in Akron was a retail boutique in Highland Square that celebrated small businesses and local artists.

Sadly, the economic problems of the day limited our opportunities and we closed the store in the fall of 2010.

Made in Akron re-launched in late 2023 with a renewed energy & commitment to help local small businesses, musicians, artists and non-profits (aka our "Owners") succeed.
