About the

Company — TeamCareers

This USA internet company began as a home-based sole proprietorship in 1978, selling used racing bicycles through classified ads.

usa consumer history

Sales exploded in 1980 when the founder began advertising in national publications. To keep pace with demand he partnered with a small fulfillment company and revenues took a big leap when they began marketing via direct-mail.

In the mid-80s the partners began wholesaling business supplies to Digital, Wang, Prime Computer and other high-tech companies. During the early '90s they easily envisioned the Internet as a lucrative B2B sales channel.

It was several more years before the web became consumer friendly. By 1999 they owned over a thousand niche domains and began selling on the Internet.

The growing company merged with an online retailer in late 2003, and the new Board of Directors reorganized the company as USA Consumer Products
