This blog post will be a fascinating account of how Best Buy Portland was born – from it’s humble beginnings in 1902, to the giant corporation that it is today. We’ll take you on a little tour through time as we explore the 12 most interesting reasons people like Best Buy Portland.
Number One: We’re a family-owned business. Our founder, George T. Williams, was the son of pioneer settlers who’d trekked across land to Oregon from the east coast in 1852 and settled on what’s now known as Portland’s East Side. Early on, he needed some way to make money so he asked his dad if they could open up a little shop for selling groceries next door – you know just like how it is when you walk into Safeway these days? So that led to him opening up a store with all kinds of general goods and dried herbs..and eventually became our very first Best Buy!
Number Two: For over 100 years we’ve been providing employment opportunities here in town. That started back when George’s dad, James, was a store clerk. And then in 1891 when he opened up his first store on the corner of Northeast 11th and Flanders Street – that became our flagship location! The original tenant did all sorts of things from manufacturing farm implements to general dry goods.
Number Three: We’re always innovating and never resting on our laurels. Well over 100 years ago we were selling telephone services before there were even telephones around (that started back in 1915). After electronics came out in the 1940s, one day someone said ‘hey why don’t you sell these?” That led us to becoming an authorized retailer for major manufacturers like Sony® Panasonic®, LG®, Samsung®, Audio-Technica™ AKG®, JBL®, and much more.
Number Nine: You can tell we’re not your average retail store because of our commitment to personal customer service. We believe that the way people are treated is the most important part of what they buy! That’s why Best Buy has been a pioneer in this area since day one, with Geek Squad® providing experts who could troubleshoot any problem for customers – even those as simple as setting up Wi-Fi or Bluetooth connections on their devices.
We’ve always wanted everyone, regardless of income level, to be able to afford the latest technology. It all started back in 1984 when we introduced Home Introduction Centers (HIC) which allowed us to bring live product demonstrations into low-income neighborhoods.
Best Buy Portland’s Geek Squad® is the nation’s number one computer repair service. We’re fast and we get it done right, which means you won’t need to worry about your device being down for long! With a wide range of services available from setup to data recovery – plus lifetime warranties on our work with no hidden fees or charges – there’s never been a better time than now to turn to Best Buy.
We LOVE that technology has advanced so quickly and yet people are still looking for physical stores where they can touch things before buying them! Our selection here includes all the latest devices in every category–from tablets and laptops through phones, home theater systems, TVs–and everything else under-the-sun. You can find the latest in tech, including wearables and VR gear right here.
The number one reason we think our customers love Best Buy is because of our amazing employees giving their best at all times to provide a great customer experience. Who wouldn’t want to feel like family when visiting? And not just staff: There’s something about being able to chat with someone nearby in the store who’s trying to help you find what you need (or just has some great recommendations) that can’t be replaced.
Efficiency is another reason people are loyal customers at Best Buy–we know how busy life gets, so we’re always looking for ways to make shopping easier and more enjoyable.

Plus, our customer service is always available via phone, online chat or email so we’re here to make sure your experience is the best it can be.
