Huge Deals Direct is a division of Think Tank Internet. But what is really important is that it is a family business. A family business that is now on its fourth generation.

A Little History: It all began in San Francisco in the first half of the last century with my father’s store on Market Street in San Francisco. I began working in the store when I was 12 years old. I worked in the basement unloading the clothes when they came in and ticketing them. I worked there until I was old enough to get a job somewhere else so I did not have to work as hard. I worked in retail during college and later worked for the manufacturer Koret of California. Now I can see what a wonderful background it truly was. Moving Right Along:

Time passed, business and family grew and then something totally revolutionary came along, Desktop computers and the Internet. I was hooked from day one. I realized that I could reach customers all over the world from my desktop computer. I learned to sell on E-Bay which was soon followed by Amazon, Newegg, Rakutan, Sears. etc. I loved the opportunities these venues represented but as time went on the limitations began to grow. None of these venues allow you to truly service your customers. They want no contact. I saw this as a serious impediment to growth. I believe that customers want to know who they are buying from, they want to feel safe and they want their questions answered. Today:


I have created Huge Deals Direct to be a family run store for the 21st century. We offer the convenience of shopping online with the benefits of a real store. Today I am joined by my grandsons (the fourth generation) in meeting the shopping needs of today’s consumers. SO please come shop with us and tell us how you like the store. If you have questions, we are here to help.
