History of Best Buy

Richard M. Schulze and a business partner opened an electronics store selling high-fidelity stereos in 1966 named ‘Sound of Music.’ The first store was financed with Schulze’s savings and from the second mortgage took on his family’s home.

In the following year, the company acquired Kencraft Hi-Fi Company and Bergo Company. Schulze bought out his business partner and had three stores in 1969.

The most profitable and largest store was destroyed by a tornado, but the stock room was intact. He decided to have a ‘Tornado Sale’ while spending the remaining marketing budget on advertising that promises ‘Best Buy’ on everything. It was in 1983 that the company was renamed Best Buy Company, Inc.

Best Buy was a public company in 1985 and later debuted on the New York Stock Exchange two years after. One of the important milestones of the company is when it reached US$1 billion in annual revenues.

The company was added to (Standard & Poor’s) S&P 500. The company acquired multiple companies in America and in Canada.

It was reported that it was purchased for US$377 million continued to operate as an independent subsidiary from Best Buy Canada.
