Shopping: Uniquely Suffolk

A. Dodson's
2948 Bridge Rd

A. Dodson’s is not just a store – it’s a destination! Unlike almost anything else in retail today, A. Dodson’s is a shopper’s oasis, where you can select from trendy clothing, distinctive home furnishings, exquisite gifts, and antiques of yesteryear. We are serious about style, yet you will find this shop unpredictable, quirky and alluring.

Born from the imagination of owner Alison Dodson Anderson, who grew up playing in the aisles of her grandfather’s general store and who has spent most of her life in retail, the shop doesn’t model perfection or prescribe one style like some retail stores. Alison and her talented staff don’t just assist the customer by selling an unprecedented mix of merchandise – furniture, table top, apparel, antiques, gifts – they provide a range of ideas. Whether searching for the perfect hostess gift on your lunch hour or hoping to furnish an entire room, you are sure to be pleased by the selection at A. Dodson’s.Let one of our personal shoppers help you find that special something or put together a complete outfit! Our friendly staff is standing by ready to enhance your shopping experience. You might just be surprised by the outcome.
