In 1949, when Samuel Wurtzel opened Ward's—Richmond, Virginia's first retail television store—his goal was to provide the community with a
new technology that would change the face of consumer electronics forever. More than 50 years, over 600 stores and several name changes later,
the technology continues to change, but Circuit City's commitment to our customers remains strong.
When was Circuit City formed?
Circuit City was founded in 1949 as Wards Company, Inc., the brainchild of Samuel S. Wurtzel. With only 2 percent of U.S. homes owning
a television in 1949, Wards TV was able to capitalize on the dawn of the TV era. Wards continued to expand through the following decades and was renamed Circuit City in 1984.
