AVU History and Timeline
Pioneers in Consumer Electronics Since 1981
A Remarkable Odyssey
Embark with us on a nostalgic journey to 1981, where in a modest apartment’s second bedroom, the seeds of Audio Video Unlimited were sown. Our illustrious founder, fueled by an unyielding passion for technology and entertainment, began with the simple act of renting video cassettes. It wasn’t long before this humble venture blossomed into a thriving 5-store audio/video chain that became a cornerstone of the Greater Vancouver electronics marketplace.
Embracing Expansion with Purpose
As the new millennium approached, Audio Video Unlimited recognized the necessity for evolution and adaptation. In 2001, the company underwent a paradigm shift, launching an ambitious affiliation program. This initiative, an ingenious amalgam of purchasing alliances and marketing synergy, resonated deeply with retailers across Canada. They flocked to join our ever-expanding network. By 2008, our constellation had grown to an impressive 120 stores stretching across Canada from coast to coast to coast, becoming a harmonious blend of innovation, expertise, and market presence.
