Thriving Retail Community
Downtown Piqua remains a thriving retail area with 150-year history. Early downtown retailers sold their good and services to travelers on the Miami and Erie Canal. Today those same storefronts have been restored to appear much as they did to canal boat travelers. The general stores have been replaced by an assortment of specialty retail, jewelers, clothing, sporting goods and gifts. Downtown Piqua is home to over 200 retail and service businesses.
