Best Products Co., Inc., left an indelible mark on the financial and cultural landscape of Virginia. The catalog showroom company that started in Richmond, Virginia, would go on to reach over $2 billion in sales, generated in hundreds of stores across the nation. The success of the company would not have been possible without the leadership of its founders, Sydney and Frances Lewis. The inseparable husband-and-wife team lead their company to the top ranks of business with groundbreaking ideas, and innovative advertising. Their catalog showroom idea would change the retail world forever. The couple passionately worked side by side, not only in business, but also as they served the community. Sydney and Frances gave generously to philanthropic organizations, supported the arts, and in the process changed the face of the commonwealth.
