FORT WAYNE, Ind. (WANE) – A former hub for roller skating in Fort Wayne that closed down eight years ago reopened its doors Monday morning– this time as a one-stop shop for antiques and vintage goods.
The historic Roller Dome South on Bluffton Road has been transformed into an antique mall fittingly named “The Rink”. It was announced in May that local businessman Alex Haggard acquired the 23,000-square-foot space with plans to celebrate its beloved history, starting with the name.
“The Rink” has the same owners as Vintage Treasures Antique Mall on West Coliseum Boulevard. Similar to their first store, “The Rink” hosts vendors from all over northeast Indiana.
Customers can even write on a special wall in the store that will feature names and dates of fond memories at the former skating rink.
Check out what “The Rink” has to offer any day of the week. Store hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday.
