This hi-fi retailer has held the Guinness World Record for most sales per square foot of any retail outlet since 1994. The record-breaking London Bridge store was opened by Julian Richer, 58, who is managing director, when he was just 19. The London-based company has since expanded to 53 stores, which also sell home cinema and television equipment.
