To our #TeamHOMAGE family:

HOMAGE was created 13 years ago from a love of storytelling and a passion for bringing people together. Our connection to the community is deeply important to us; it sustains us and gives us purpose.

On Sunday, March 15, Ohio Governor Mike DeWine and Director of the Ohio Department of Health, Dr. Amy Acton, made the difficult decision to close bars and restaurants within the state of Ohio in an effort to protect against further spread of COVID-19.

We at HOMAGE also feel the need to do our part, and so, in the interest of safety, we have made the decision to close all HOMAGE retail stores in Columbus, Cleveland and Cincinnati for the foreseeable future.

While we’re going to miss seeing you every day, we feel this is the best choice to maintain the health and well-being of our all-stars and the communities that we serve.

In the meantime, our online store and distribution center will remain open with enhanced cleaning procedures in place. In addition, our customer experience team will continue to assist. As the situation evolves, we will keep you informed of any additional changes.

As author John Green writes, “There is no Them. There are only facets of Us.” In the midst of these extraordinary circumstances, we must come together as one community to take care of each other as we look to the future with hope and optimism.
