A nationwide electronics retailer based in Albemarle County is celebrating 40 years in business.

Crutchfield offered one-day anniversary deals at the store on Route 29 until 8 p.m. Saturday.

Owner Bill Crutchfield started the business out of his mother's garage in 1974. After installing a stereo in his car, Crutchfield decided to create a catalogue for electronics.

“He laid out all the papers to make his catalogue there, got his print, got a loan, brought in product, and had it all down there and the first catalogue was a learning experience,” store manager Dan Peterson said.

In honor of the big day and the company's beginnings, stereo equipment vendors parked outside the Albemarle County store.

Crutchfield gave away prizes and offered car stereo discounts until the store closed Saturday night.
