In 1974, after furiously peddling 8-track tapes out of a 1962 green chevy van (160,000 miles plus) for one and a half years, Jan Fichman & his father Jack had a thought. Maybe it would be a great idea to open a retail store (and stay in one place) and sell music and cool stuff, allowing Jan to return to college and pursue a degree in medicine.(Okay, Jan really wanted to go to frat parties every weekend & persue good-looking women. Still….)
And so 7th Heaven was born. A unique, anti-authoritarian store that has always catered to those people looking for something….different. Trends have changed & 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 & necessary tools for those leading an alternative lifestyle.
