In 1974, after furiously peddling 8-track tapes out of a 1962 green Chevy van (160,000 miles plus), Jan Fichman & his father Jack had an idea: open a retail store that sells music and other cool stuff.
This record store in Kansas City allowed Jan to return to college and pursue a degree in medicine. (Okay, Jan really wanted to go to frat parties every weekend and pursue good-looking women. Still…)
And so, 7th Heaven was born: a unique, alternative life style record store that has always catered to those people looking for something…. different
Since 1974, trends have changed, and 7th Heaven changes with them. Out goes hair-metal, in comes gangsta-rap; out goes turquoise rings, in comes body jewelry.
All the while, 7th Heaven has stayed committed to providing the fun and necessary tools for those leading an alternative lifestyle.
