Arkady Teplitsky was born on 17 July 1964 in Leningrad. He graduated from Obraztsov Railway Engineers' Training School in Leningrad.
Teplitsky admitted that he and his partner were united by ''Jewish soul'' which allowed them to keep a constant part of the company since 1993. As Teplitsky said, ''because the Jewish soul also implies some moral and ethical qualities trained by parents and traditions''. To maintain ''the Jewish soul'' Teplitsky managed to come to an agreement with a Jewish religious organization which allowed him to have a small office at the Hasidic canteen in front of the Wailing Wall where palmers could have free meals. For the right to have an office Teplitsky had to maintain the canteen. People from different cities of Russia sent messages to Teplitsky's office. Texts of the messages were displayed on a big screen set in front of the Wailing Wall. Then the messages were printed out, and every morning a rabbi took the notes and put them into the Wall. But Teplitsky received not that many messages and after 5 or 6 months it became clear the project was getting too expensive. However, Teplitsky said that it had been a great pleasure, ''although the money was lost ''.

Teplitsky and other co-owners of Domovoy retail network owed to major developer Viktor Surkov rent money for 3.3 thousands of square metres for Domovoy hypermarket of household goods in Megacity mall in Samara. In 2007 the companies signed a contract for 10 years. However, a year later Domovoy met financial troubles. By April 2009, when Viktor Surkov applied to the Court of Arbitration in the Samara Region, the debt had been almost 9 million rubles. Cosidering the penalty and operating expenses, in spring 2011 the debt reached 45 million rubles. On 11 March 2011 former owner of Domovoy Teplitsky was reported to sell the failed project to another chain of stores in St. Petersburg, Na Start. According to different sources, Arkady Teplitsky and his Adamant got from 10 to 50 million dollars for Domovoy. Viktor Surkov foresaw the turn of events and repeatedly tried to get claim security: several times he demanded arrest of Domovoy's accounts and ban on using the trademark. But his applications were never accepted by court.
