Magnolia Thunderpussy, with a name intended to be remembered, originally sold records in the 1970s for $2.99 and $3.99 before the onset of VHS, cassettes and CDs.
“There were record stores on every corner, almost more than bars.”
- Charles Kubat
Kubat and his daughter, Charlotte Kubat-Vishak, take a break from operating the store for a picture. In 1969, Kubat founded the store at its original location at 11th Avenue and High Street, but it has since moved to High Street and near 4th Street.
When confronted with the demolition of other local businesses just blocks away, Hall said in an interview with The Lantern in 2016 that “… We honestly don’t really want to try to struggle through [construction] again.” Used Kids decided to relocate further off campus to its current location on Summit Street in order to avoid the strain High Street construction would have on business.
