Time To Celebrate

Rivertowne Antique Center Hits 17-Year Milestone

June 18, 2021

Unlike the noisy Cicadas that appear once in 17 years, the Rivertowne Antique Center in Columbia, Pa., is hitting 17 but has been open since June 2004 and is celebrating the benchmark with a big anniversary sale on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, June 25, 26 and 27.
“Due to the COVID restrictions last June, we were closed, and unable to conduct our traditional anniversary sale event,” stated co-owner Georgia Townsend. “Now we want to make some noise and thank our loyal customers for helping us during the past year.” During this special sale weekend, Rivertowne shoppers can find great discounts of up to 50 percent off items in the store.
Located along the banks of the Susquehanna River in the historic Bachman-Forry tobacco warehouse, Rivertowne is Columbia’s longest operating antique center and set the stage back in 2004 for what now has become one of the hottest antiques, collectibles and vintage shopping destinations in the region.
Today, Rivertowne is home to 80 quality dealers and consignors displaying a vast selection of authentic 18th-, 19th- and early 20th-century items, including painted country furniture, folk art, Americana, primitives, glassware, stoneware, trade signs, general store items, mid-century and industrial pieces and decorative smalls.
“There’s a buzz in the air, and the word is out about the great variety of shops now in Columbia,” said co-owner Ron Madar. “We’re proud to have been one of the sparks that got it started and pleased to have seen the re-development over the past 17 years. We look forward to continued growth here in Columbia. Come visit the quality multi-dealer shop, ‘down by the river.’”
Rivertowne Antique Center is conveniently located off Route 30. Shop goers can take the Columbia/Marietta exit and the new Front Street/River Road downtown bypass or follow Third Street into town, turn right on Locust, go a block and a half, and turn left on Bank Avenue. There is plenty of free parking. The address is 125 Bank Ave., Columbia. Gift Certificates, layaway and shipping are available. Dealers and decorators are always welcome.
