How did Spokane's Huppins become a major national electonics retailer? 

Company CEO and President Murray Huppin will talk about the company's four-generation history and growth at the next Executive Connect Breakfast, at 7:30 a.m. March 22.

The event is at the Spokane Club's Georgian Ballroom.

Consumers today think of Huppins and its online site, OneCall, as an established electronics brand. The company's early roots, however, were in clothing retail and pawnbroking.

Huppin's moved into electronics completely in the 1970s, and launched OneCall in 1994.

OneCall was ranked in Internet Retailer’s Top 20 Consumer Electronics retailer web sites of 2008. Tickets are $30 and can be bought at the Connect Northwest registration page.
