Lakeside Company, primarily owned by Benjamin Rogers, is a consumer
electronics distributor and retailer which originally sold radios, televisions,
and stereo equipment. The said company started in 1977 with a single store.
The business did well and the company expanded thereafter at the rate of
one new store every two or three years. Presently, six stores are in operation,
three in Richmond with one in each of the three nearby cities: Charlottesville,
Fredericksburg, and Petersburg. The first five stores were set up in rented
spaces within small shopping centers while the most recent store was located
in a building Lakeside itself constructed; adjacent to a new shopping mall on
the east side of Richmond. In addition, Lakeside owns a warehouse which also
provides office space for the companys administrative staff.
