Pacific Sales is a wholly owned subsidiary of Best Buy. They were originally opened with one store in Torrance, California. They offer high to mid range appliances as well as an assortment of home electronics and other home improvement products.[2] When the company was purchased by Best Buy in 2006, the decision was made to keep the brand and company intact, unlike other companies such as Magnolia who was absorbed into the Best Buy brand. Since then, the company has opened over 35 stores in California, Nevada and Arizona, and had opened stores within existing Best Buy stores in Texas and Hawaii as well as California, Nevada, Oregon, Georgia, and Arizona to offer higher end appliances than are currently available in Best Buy.[3] As of July 2013, they operate 36 full-assortment stores (those carrying major appliances as well as home electronics and home improvement) in California, Nevada, Arizona and Texas. In addition to these 36, they also operate 55 appliance-only stores located within existing Best Buy locations in California, Arizona, Hawaii, Texas, Minnesota, Virginia, Maryland, Georgia, and Iowa.[4] Much of the business Pacific Sales does is in bulk as well as builder/contractor sales.
