    The ever-popular American IT online store Newegg is heading for a sister-store in Canada. Newegg draws hits from all over the world for having the broadest range of IT products and at some very attractive prices, in close to 99 percent of the orders placed in the US, deliveries were approved within 24 hours of placing orders.

    The entry of Newegg into Canada could shake up the Canadian online retail sphere and promises to bring the best available prices to Canadian buyers. With expansion being a key company policy for Newegg, starting off with a Newegg Mall in the United States, and now the store in Canada, we can tell the company is aggressively expanding. The site is currently at a construction stage, another URL to keep handy is www.newegg.ca

    It could make NCIX a little more competetive eh? Sometimes their prices are better...but for what I've looked for on NCIXUS most of the time Newegg beats em.

    Very cool, I am glad they're spreading out...I've had an overall great experience with Newegg...one tip for most, CALL them, don't do the online contact stuff...it can take days for what you can solve in minutes over the phone! Hopefully that's the same for the guys' up north!

    Actually, I'm surprised Newegg didn't go worldwide years ago. I bet Canada has NEVER seen customer service like Newegg will bring to them.

    For most budding American companies with big global dreams, Canada is the safest first step.

    Easy there, killer. :laugh: What I meant is that Newegg has the best customer service I've ever experienced, and maybe Canadians will appreciate a great customer service model like Newegg has. I've bought from NCIX, and their customer service was not steller..

    It would, but it may be very hard to enter our market. We have a whole heap of stores which offer very good prices as it is (ATM some prices we have are better than newegg, and thats after the conversion from usd to aud)

    I don't know about their American presence but in Canada, I've had some pretty great experience with NCIX's customer service. I guess it may vary from individual to individual but, I don't have a single complaint. All of my issues were taken care of very promptly and however I don't doubt Newegg's ability to provide quality service, I don't see how they can be much better than NCIX.

    It would be nice to see newegg.eu followed by newegg.uk, newegg.au, newegg.cn.....and newegg.in :eek:

    I'm a joke too, laugh at me. Making people laugh is a talent.

    Should be interesting, I hope they can offer "like" USA pricing since our currencies have been on just about exactly on par for like 8 months.. Nicx.ca has horrible pricing where they can.. they also do not always label things correctly...

    I bought a 90' angle adaptor for $20 thinking I was getting a pair of them for my wc'ing system but it turns out it was a bit labeled wrong like happens with other products aswell. actually that one said single and pair it showed 2 in the picture aswell, so since theres no returns on WC'in stuff I have 1 90" angle barb that I paid 20$ for lol.

    Yeah competition never hurts :D

    I was just refering it it from their perspective...it might be hard for them to move in. For us....its cheaper parts :D!

    You're right about the individual experience. I just know that Newegg has always gone out of their way during RMA's etc. Though I don't order much from them now, because I live in TN and get killed in sales tax.

    Fair enough. As a regular customer of NCIX though, I still definitely want to check out Newegg when they finally come here. I'm pretty excited about it actually. The only downside I can think of is that Newegg (so I hear) loves to use UPS. Unfortunately, UPS service in Canada is garbage. Lost packages, damaged goods...just overall terrible experience in general with UPS.

    I won't be surprised if they even use those 'Ice Road Truckers' to deliver stuff considering they do anything to ship things fast.
