Well Kruz we will head out there for a geek expedition when they open this summer. Perhaps we will get Sagath too and we can get a nerdfest on the go.

Sweet. Quicker shipping for us Quebec residents and we STILL only pay one tax!

Ground shipping via CP and Puro may become a viable solution.
Express is already overnight from Vancouver, so I expect no changes here.

FFUUUUU!!!

While shipping speedups are nice, I doubt I'll order from NCIX anymore due to the HST. I'll probably be able to walk into Canada Computers and get it for the same price and not have to have the hassle of shipping, or order from Bewawa and get free shipping.

Or you could price match with NCIX, and get their good service...

THIS. IS. AWESOME! Who wants to pay NCIX a visit with me when they're open? Maybe we'll see Esther and Linus!

I wonder where they'll be located. I'm guessing close to Bewawa.

@SKYMTL. We've talked bout Bewawa a bit here. Yea they're a legit company. They have a warehouse and customers can go pick up what they ordered from there, or they can have it delivered for free if you live in the GTA. It's same day delivery too.

Slightly off topic, but who did Linus marry? Or did he get engaged to someone?

Yeah, while I'm sure there's other motivations as well, this smacks of looking towards the Ontario sales that will doubtlessly be hurt by the HST. Me, I'm just gearing up for one last nice order this month, and hopefully that'll hold me over for awhile. Be interesting to see how the other Ontario stores react to this.

Yeah this is some news for some I can imagine. About time NCIX starts expanding east..
Well Memory Express also opening soon in Vancouver, and they PM too. This could be good competition for NCIX..
