It seems like Newegg is finally on its way to officially enter the Canadian market with the launch of their .ca domain. We have asked Newegg for comment regarding this and are expecting an official statement from them by next week.
Without a doubt this is a boon for Canadian customers as Newegg has always been just a bit too far away with their amazing selection and great prices. Now, instead of being out of our reach it seem like they are on their way into direct competition with the etailers here in Canada. This could lead to a major shakeup of the Canadian retailer scene in the near future.
Well from what I heard, it will ship FROM Canada :)
This is going to be difficult for DC / NCIX as NewEgg already has a reputation and I'm sure the NewEgg people are aware of NCIX/DC - As far as prices, well I don't know their prices will be any better than DC, we'll just have to wait and see.
I hope it happens but I guess we will see. They supposedly owned the domain in 2005 and the rep posted that newegg.ca will be live any day now. Three years later it resurfaces. I checked that site daily for a week and got annoyed.
Today NCIX is in the same league for prices, egg just has more selection.

Search newegg from Google Canada, the sponsored result is newegg.ca. I think they're serious this time.
I will give newegg a try, if I don't like them, I'll gladly go back to NCIX and just price match it. That is if the product is cheaper at newegg.
