What started as a drive-in theater over half a century ago has become a local landmark for shoppers and budding entrepreneurs from around the world. Our recently remodeled 15-acre site offers visitors a unique shopping experience under sunny Southern California skies.
Our shoppers sell everything from rare antiques & collectibles to dramatically discounted new merchandise. The Roadium is the South Bay’s favorite place to treasure hunt, find bargains, and make memories with family and friends.
General Manager | I come from the vibrant nation of Colombia, where I was raised in a family deeply ingrained with values of unwavering work ethic, utmost dedication, and profound respect for others. These principles have been the guiding force behind my journey. With over a decade of experience in various fields, including multi-million project management, private business negotiation, leasing, logistics and high standards of customer service, I have accumulated a diverse background that has enriched me to excel in different roles and contribute effectively to every endeavor I undertake. Today, I have the wonderful opportunity and honor to continue The Roadium Legacy, which is only possible through the hard work and dedication of my team. I view The Roadium as a family that strives to improve every day in any way we can– I am fortunate to have dedicated and respected employees who are committed from sunrise to sundown; to provide high-standard customer service for and to our shopper and vendors. I extend a warm and respectful "Welcome" to you from The Roadium – where each Vendor’s diligence and start-up dream becomes a lasting legacy!
Financial Controller & Human Resource Manager | I come from the transportation and non-profit side of business. With over 40 years in the accounting and human resource field, I “enjoy” the challenge of finances and people. Having been at the Roadium for almost 8 years, I have come to know that the swap meet business is composed of some of the hardest working people I have ever seen. Our vendors are the backbone of the Roadium, and being able to partner with the management team we have has been a true blessing. And a roller coaster! But like any family, we make it work, and I am proud to be a part of this dedicated group.
