Schulze transformed his small Sound of Music electronic store into an electronics retailing giant – Best Buy. Schulze introduced mass-merchandising techniques to the electronics marketplace and helped to transform the shopping process into a personal experience, shifting the balance of power from the salesperson to the consumer. His focus on customer service, interactive displays, and large, value-priced selections have made Best Buy the undisputed leader in the sales of electronics and accessories.
