|More than twenty years ago, Henry and Judy Dodrer decided to make a career change. Henry was a machinist and an auctioneer. Judy's dream was to open an antique mall. After spending several months looking for the right site to house antiques and to hold auctions, Henry and Judy found a 30-year old building in Westminster, Maryland that met their specifications. On July 31, 1994, the Westminster Antique Mall opened for business with 34 dealers in house. By September all available space was filled. The success story continued for Henry and Judy as the mall expanded in September 1997, making it the largest antique mall in Maryland.
Henry and Judy have created an impressive handicapped accessible mall with more than 25,000 square feet of antiques and collectibles. Today, more than 165 dealers proudly display their specialties in attractively arranged booths. Their creativity in this well designed mall evokes a pleasant feeling as one browses . Customers comment that they like the music from the 40's, 50's, and 60's; and that it makes them feel like dancing down the aisles. Benches are strategically placed around the mall for added comfort and convenience while the customer contemplates the purchase of that much sought after find. Warm, friendly and knowledgeable staff is readily available for assistance. Henry and Judy attribute their success to "hard work, good dealers and the good Lord." Come visit Westminster Antique Mall soon. The mall is open 7 days a week. Monday through Saturday from 10:00 AM until 6:00 PM, and Sundays 12:00 Noon until 6:00 PM. Closed Christmas day, New Years day, Easter Sunday, 4th of July, Labor Day, & Thanksgiving day.
