They also sell accessories for other Apple products, like iPods and iPhones. MacMall is a wholly owned subsidiary of PC Mall, which is a NASDAQ traded company.
Its parent company PC Mall, started out as a mail-order catalog company in 1987 at Marina del Rey, CA in the residence of its co-founders brothers Sam and Frank Khulusi. Started out under the name "Creative Computers" before changing it to its current name PC Mall, was the number one mail-order reseller of Amiga computers from Commodore International until its closure on April 1994. The closure of Commodore didn't come too rough as the company obtained authorization to sell Apple computers early that year. With the new partnership and much optimism, the company moved to a 35,000 sq ft (3,300 m2) distribution center with 15,000 sq ft (1,400 m2) of office space. In the first quarter of 1995, the company filed for initial public offering(IPO) and went public in April 1995. After a year of robust growth, the company launched the website MacMall.com to add to its already-burgeoning sales.
MacMall is the biggest online revenue-earner for PC Mall and its subsidiaries. At the end of 2010, total net sales of MacMall amounted to approximately US$200 million, which was 15% of the company’s US$1.3 billion revenue for the year-end.
