I have never left without a smile on my face and style in my hand, believe me when I say that In Style Accessories is truly the best!

The office

I guess my decision was easy. If you want the best beer, drinks or food, fine dinning or burgers and piza. The office bistro is the only place in Akron that has it all and does it all well

Why 25 min.

Customers come from all over to various businesses in Akron. They may not live in or frequent 25 places in Akron. How are they supposed to vote for their favorite business if they don't know 25 other Akron Businesses? There vote should count.

Best Animal Shelter

We volunteer at Pawsibilities Humane Society of Greater Akron. We've never known such a dedicated, warmhearted, hard-working group of people whose only goal is to help the animals who are brought to the shelter. Many have been abused, abandoned, lost, or worse. They need everything -- a bath, food, comfort, security, love, a safe place to lay their heads, freedom from terror -- and most of all a loving forever home. The goal of everyone at the shelter is to make this happen. Nothing makes us happier than to see an animal "go home."
