A Message From The CEO & Founder, Bob Cole
To the diehards who've been with us since the beginning, way back in '79 (you know who you are) and to all the new recruits. To the legions of cinema buffs, music lovers and early adopters who refused to compromise, and the car music freaks who helped push our mobile electronics department to #1 in the country. To all you jazz, blues, and classical music aficionados, including of course, you wonderful rockers. Most of all, to the many families who live to have fun together: I thank you, and we all thank you. Our stores have been - and always will be - your stores. You not only make us look good, you make what we do the best job in the world.
