About The Good Guys
One of the major players within the Australian retailer market, The Good Guys’ heritage begins back in 1952 as Ian Muir’s Radio and Electrical Centre in Essendon, Victoria. Following interstate expansions, the business was relabelled as Mighty Muir in 1992, before undergoing another change in 1998 to The Good Guys. In 2016, JB Hi-Fi officially purchased The Good Guys chain, with The Good Guys currently operating close to 100 stores around Australia to help consumers with their electrical purchases.
