Near Buy logo: Supporting Local commerce

Quantum Theatre has long been thankful for the privilege of guiding our patrons, friends, and family on explorations of Pittsburgh’s neighborhoods. We are thrilled to announce the Near Buy initiative, generously funded by the Richard King Mellon Foundation, a year-long opportunity for you to continue exploring our city while supporting local businesses.

Meet Our Featured Partners

CobblerWorld

Downtown

When Terina J. Hicks, owner of CobblerWorld, was laid off in 2015, she decided she would no longer work for someone else. She took a leap of faith, and with “nothing to lose and everything to gain,” her cobblers took off. With a downtown storefront and a regular presence at the Robinson Farmer’s Market, Cobbler World is a bakeshop that focuses on the nostalgic confections that many of us have grown up enjoying. The menu rotates weekly so there is always a new delicious treat to enjoy.

How to Order

Visit in-person Tuesday through Thursday at 1059 Penn Ave, Pittsburgh, PA 15222, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.

Find CobblerWorld at the Robinson Farmers Market on Steubenville Pike every Monday from 3:00 p.m. to 7:00 p.m.
