Hideaway 4 opens in Hudson
It all started in 2000 with an entrepreneurial spirit and a small convenience store in Minneapolis.
When veterans returning from the Middle East started asking for hookahs and the accessories that go with them, Wael "Wally" Sakallah added a small inventory to his convenience store. Soon the smoking accessories were out-selling the rest of the inventory. The first Hideaway was opened in Dinkytown near the University of Minnesota.
