CANTON − For decades, Quonset Hut was a haven for music lovers − vinyl records, 8-tracks, cassette tapes, compact discs.
Opening in 1969, it also served as a hippie boutique specializing in jewelry, clothing and smoker’s needs, as well as once being the only local supplier of Levi’s jeans. And despite different locations, changing trends and shifts in music technology, Quonset Hut has survived through adaptation, variety and creativity.
Moving in 2019 from the 3200 block of Cleveland Avenue NW to the 3700 block of the same street, Quonset Hut maintains ties to its history with a sizeable and curated vinyl record collection and a smoke shop for ages 21 and older featuring hookah, e-cigarettes, vaporizers and other items.
However, it also offers disc golf, pickleball and dart equipment; jewelry made of sterling silver, copper, brass and semi-precious stones; candles and incense; teas, herbs and spices; skateboards; tied-dyed shirts and other clothing; adult toys for ages 18 and older; metaphysical items such as essential oils and crystals; and other unique and assorted gifts.
Quonset Hut’s evolution is continuing with a grand opening event from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday to unveil its new, multi-purpose community event space next to the store at 3775 Cleveland Ave. NW at the corner of 38th Street NW. A ribbon cutting ceremony is scheduled for noon.
Parking will be at Quonset Hut with overflow spaces at 3757 Cleveland Ave. NW.
