A Hyattsville resident is closing his D.C. record shop.

The Washington City Paper reports that Josh Harkavy will shut down Red Onion Records & Books in Adams Morgan on Sept. 30.

The subterranean shop, which Washington City Paper lauded in two consecutive Best Of D.C. issues, has attracted a loyal customer base since it opened in late 2006. But owner Josh Harkavy is ready to try his hand at something else.

“I’m just not really happy anymore, owning a brick-and-mortar business,” Harkavy told City Paper last week.

Harkavy says he may open a stand at a flea market, sell records through an email list or even open a mobile record shop similar to a taco truck.

You can sign up for the email list on Red Onion’s website or visit the shop at 1901 18th St. NW in Washington.
