Back in 1966, Richard Schulze opened a small shop in Saint Paul, MN with a business partner, calling it Sound of Music and selling Hi-Fi stereos. The next two decades would be a complicated dance of acquisitions, wild growth, and ever-increasing popularity. By 1983 the company had grown to seven locations and rebranded as Best Buy, greatly increasing their available product range and hewing to a commission-free business model. By 1991, Best Buy was pulling in over $1 billion annually and today features Canadian and Mexican divisions, features over 1,000 locations in all 50 states, and is the largest consumer electronics retail company in the country.
This year, most Best Buy locations will be open from 5pm through 1am on Thanksgiving in case you’ve got the hankering for some D-cell batteries after dinner, though locations in Maine, Massachusetts, and Rhode Island will be closed all day Thursday. Most locations will reopen at 8am on Black Friday for a whole new round of doorbusters while Maine locations will open at 12:01am and locations in Massachusetts and Rhode Island will open at 1am. New, SUPER-SECRET doorbusters will be revealed on both Friday AND Saturday!
