Everything we do revolves around our devotion to happiness and amazing customer service
John Roberts, our CEO, was in the pub with his friend, who bet him £1 that he couldn't sell appliances online - he took up the challenge!
John launched Appliances Online, the group's first website selling white goods.
We acquired two-man delivery company, Expert Logistics. We also launched our Facebook page in 2009 (and it's been growing ever since!).
We launched our in-house video production facility. Today, the facilities have grown to include 3 studios and a small team of presenters and you'll see the video reviews across the site.
We were voted number 63 in the Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For!
We launched our brand spanking new customer service centre in Manchester city centre, creating approximately 150 new jobs. Plus, we went up a whopping 58 places in the Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For to be voted number 5!
Appliances Online re-launched as ao.com! We won the PayPal Best Large Pure Play Etailer award, hit 1 million fans on Facebook, showcased our TV adverts, and moved into our new head office. Phew! We moved up to number 4 in the Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For too!
Once again we were voted number 4 in the Times 100 Best Mid-Sized Companies to Work For, and we won the Customer Service Initiative award at the Oracle Retail Week Awards. We also floated on the London Stock Exchange.
