The store with a rocket in its logo is going to blast off early next year. Parris and Kent Sadow have just announced that they’ll close their Admiral District toys-and-candy shop (Max and Quinn’s) Atomic Boys (Shop-o-Rama) early next year:
Since 2008, Atomic Boys has provided West Seattle with retro toys, games, novelties and an extensive selection of the candy “you grew up with”. It’s been our pleasure to see our customers, young and old, rediscover these things and introduce them to the next generation.
After much deliberation, we have decided to close our storefront on Admiral Way when our lease ends at the end of January. Along with our sons, whom the store is named after, we have enjoyed being an active part of the business community and watching the various generations of kids grow up from elementary school to college age by being that “local shop” they look forward to going to. And as all things grow and develop, we are also considering new opportunities and exciting ideas.
Atomic Boys has plenty of new merchandise for holiday shopping as well as great deals and will be closing out back-stock and any remaining stock in January in a blow-out sale!
Thank you, West Seattle, for a super cool, fab, outta-sight nine years….and stay tuned!
