It’s one of those stores that’s tucked in the narrowest dead-end street. Homage is a small business that sells T-shirts (amongst other items such as collectibles and accessories). It is situated on 17 E. Brickel St., Columbus, OH 43202. Basically the business pays homage to great events, icons and greats (especially sports-related). Since it’s in the heart of Columbus’s Short North, most of the apparel are related to The Ohio State University, Columbus and Ohio in general. However, I did find various items unrelated to Ohio (such as Larry “Legend” Bird T’s and other university T’s).
I really liked the concept of this store. It doesn’t just stick some random graphics on T-shirts. The shirts have a purpose: to pay homage. So what does “paying homage” mean? Basically paying homage means paying respect. In this case, it’s to pay respect to great moments and icons in sports history.
I like the little tidbits that they sell on the side. Since it was my first time at the store, I got Robocop collectible cards, a Rah-Rag and a Homage sticker. The staff are really nice. They’re not intimidating sales people that want you just grab any random shirts. They are very helpful. I picked up a couple of shirts, but I’m definitely going back later for some more!!
