Akron is a small town but it is near other towns such as Ephrata and Lititz. Shops and companies in Akron include Weiser's, a small grocery store with excellent fresh doughnuts, Royer's, a drug and gift store, as well as other small stores. We also have a small pizza/bar resturant and a road side barbeque trailer. Brewsters is the barbeque trailer has the best brisket and does catering as well. I have lived here for 16 years and love the town and all it has to offer.
