History[edit]

Parent company PCM started out as a mail-order catalog company in 1987 at Marina del Rey, CA in the residence of its co-founders, brothers Sam and Frank Khulusi. PCM started out under the name "Creative Computers" and was the number one mail-order reseller of Amiga computers from Commodore International until its closure on April 1994. That same year, PCM obtained authorization to sell Apple computers. The company moved to a 35,000 sq ft (3,300 m2) distribution center with 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) of office space. In the first quarter of 1995, the company filed for initial public offering and listed on the NASDAQ in April 1995. After a year of growth, PCM launched MacMall.com.
