What is the history of hhgregg?
In 1955, in a small storefront on Indianapolis' north side, H. H. and Fansy Gregg first walked the sales floor of their new appliance store. The Gregg's new store featured washing machines, clothes dryers, refrigerators and outdoor grills. Not long after, the family began selling black & white and the newest color television sets, along with other electronic products.
The business was founded on personal, caring customer service. Customers enjoyed the personal service and attention to detail the store offered, and business prospered.Back to Top
