Akron, NY is a close-knit town that allows you to enjoy the peace of the countryside yet has its benefits of a metropolitan area as it sits only 25 miles outside of the City of Buffalo and just 15 miles away from good shopping areas. The town is proud of its many local businesses that service many parts of the country such as Ford Gum, Perry's Ice Cream, and Whiting Door. The town also offers the enjoyment of Akron Falls Park and has proud Native American culture tied to the Seneca Nation.
Review Akron
There are a few manufacturing company here so the jobs are there.
Small town with the necessity. More mom-and pop stores than chain. yes. We can get pretty much what we need in our town.
