Another One Bites the Dust...

It's a sad, sad day for us vinyl enthusiasts in the DC area (...the one's who liked to actually hit a brick-and-mortar from time-to-time; and get a close-up look, feel and audial sample of what we were about to drop our hard earned $$$ on). First the old Capitol City Records went away; and now, even after it's revival and remodeling after a vicious fire and major smoke/water damage back in August of 2007; the DJ Hut is now on the way out, too.

This came through on the B-Berry, this afternoon:

DJ Hut friends and customers,

We have some sad and disappointing news to share with you. DJ Hut can no longer battle the dual headwind of the demise of the music retail industry and the economic downturn. As a result, we are forced to shut down the store and go strictly online at the end of April. Effective immediately, all vinyl records, CDs, DVDs and books will be liquidated at the rate of 20% off the regular price.

We would like to thank you for your support over the last 7 years at the store and we look forward to your continued support in the future online.

Best, DJ Hut Crew

At least they'll still be peddling wares on the net; but, that does nothing for me when I need a trusty location to bring my Tech 12's when they need repairs or a tune-up. And, having just been in there a few weeks ago, it's a real shame that they have to close down the shop. It was looking REALLY sweet after the post-blayze remodeling, with the fresh hardwood floors and new display-hardware. Plus, there was nothing like shopping for and sampling their wax, while inhaling that enchanting scent of freshly baked Subway bread...

So, if you're in the market for any "records, CDs, DVDs and books" be sure to drop-by and show some love, while getting a 20% break at the same time.

Peace out, DJ Hut...thanks for everything!!!
