Astro Biz: Atomic Boys Shop-O-Rama

IMG_0646Many businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring them regularly on Seattle Astronomy.

Today’s Astro Biz is Atomic Boys Shop-O-Rama, just a short hop and a skip from Seattle Astronomy World Headquarters in West Seattle. When we originally cooked up the idea for the Astro Biz series we thought it would be mostly about the names. But Atomic Boys is so, well, spacey that they definitely count. Their shop sign has space and astronomy symbols on it, their “open” sign includes a ringed planet and a star, and their stock of retro toys includes some cool rockets and robots.

This week marks a nice milestone for Atomic Boys, which has now been open for business for seven years, and they’re throwing a party this Saturday, March 28. Drop by the shop for discounts, drawings, and a chance to win a giant gumball machine. There’s also a rumor that the robot from Lost in Space will be there. Warning, Will Robinson! The fun will be from 10 a.m. until 6 p.m. Atomic Boys is at 4311 SW Admiral Way, just east of the Admiral Junction.
