DJ Hut to close brick and mortar store – shift to online only…


A staple of the DC music community, DJ Hut, was the bearer of bad news yesterday in a message to its fans on Facebook:

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.

Dj Hut Crew

I am not a DJ but am a big fan of DJ Hut, as a collector of vinyl/owner of a record player, and fan of the turntablism craft. I would also work with my homies Seth and Saj to rent tables from those guys for them to play at parties we would put on around DC. The guys there were always mad cool, like Stylus Chris and the crew. Be sure to stop by before they close and continue to support online. It’s a sad rainy Friday. And only a couple weeks away from Record Store Day on April 18.
