Newegg.com En Route Canada

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.caSource: Hardware Canucks

I think you have it backwards there imperialreign. In the summer we save on the A/C and in the winter you just need to turn up your overclock a little ;)

If they want to compete with Ncix, it will have to be the same prices, and lower on some things.

What is in the water these days in Canada?

Back on topic,... the last 2 orders I have made from Newegg (in the past 3 months) has been shipped from Ontario, so I think the egg has been thinking of this for a while.

UPS isnt bad at all. I Thought the same thing when they changed from defacto fed ex to ups. Even where I Work, UPS is cheaper and quicker. You can still choose FED EX if you want, but the price is higher.

Eskimos are up here in Canada and Alaska silly :P Antarctica only has scientists and not much elses, it can get as cold as -50 to like -100c maybe even lower down there with up to 190km/h wind gusts :O. theres like a mini Village for scientists down there.

Eskimos nowadays dont live in Igloos anymore, they have nice warm houses and even computers! lol Still have snow for most of the year up North though.

Hey you have a right to feel however you want, sorry you didn't like my comment.. I meant no offense, glad I got ya to your 17th post though! I like my rock at TPU though, between that and the real world, my life is quite good thank you! :toast:

I still think Newegg is making a good move, like others said sure it's long overdue, and may be rough at first, in the long run you guys will like more competition and better prices just as much as we do...sure we all can bitch about it, at the end of the day, if you can get the better product at a better price...what are you really going to do? If I can't afford to get it from the local guy, I will get it from the cheaper guy. Please don't hate me for my purchasing choices! :roll:

Your going to know soon enough because were going to be forced to ship it south in the near future. We can thank our politicians for signing NAFTA, just another give away. Between us and the Mexicans were going to keep your Industries humming along.
I have one question to ask and this topic for me is over. We ship alot of your energy needs such as oil hydro electric, and uranium. Most of our Lumber Mills and OSB plants are permanantly shut down and all were shipping south is raw logs for your mills, and don't tell me no one has heard of the Softwood duty and how the US of A has crippled our wood industry.What do we get back in return? BestBuy, Newegg, Costco,Wallmart I will say this tho, I wouldn't leave this country for anything. North America is the greatest place in the world to live. The information we get up here is that even the American people are starting to wonder about Bush and the boys and all the rights that you have had for the last couple of hundred years all coming to a socialist end. Thanks for letting me have the Freedom to rant not like some socialist up above who thought it much easier to kick me out of the forum then to put in a good rebuttal.

Hmm, well you're not shipping much for logs to montana then, at least 90% of all our major mills have shut down in the last 5 years,...the one or two that are open have been utilizing burned wood from major fires HERE in the last decade...maybe a small portion comes to us, and they've cut on staff to the point of minimal output..the lumber industry is sad nonetheless.

Icrush, you have the right to your points, think just like you stated of me and others, are more from one perspective or view...you see your side, we see our side...it is what it is to both sides. Just don't attack those of us that are not running these companines, organizations, I don't personally take your money, you don't personally take mine, but we both feed off of eachother's economies in one way or another..it may hit home a little harder to some than others though. Glad you're willing to stand up for what you believe in, glad you stand behind your beliefs, you are proud of who you are and where you come from, noone can take that away from you! :toast:

AND THAT INLCUDES NEWEGG! LoL! J/K! Had to toss that one in to lighten up the mood...:D

Ati was bought out by Amd (American), just the shell is sitting up here. Corsair is American buying and using Samsung memory chips.

I didn't want to prolong this. Here's a little lesson on the agreement of NAFTA. If the Canadadian Government allows the sale of water that opens up the (pardon the pun) the flood gates. Our country has no right to turn off the taps even in an emergency where our people could be harmed. NAFTA states we have to supply a certain amount of water no mater what the consequences are from then on. That is why their is such a strong pressure to get the taps flowing south. One of your politicians running for President talked about opening up the agreement which would have opened up a can of worms, was silenced from talking that rhetoric because now that the people have a better understanding of the NAFTA deal here in Canada, it could be written up to not benefit the Americans as much.

Open market economy. There's nothing you can do except mass protest/riot with a nationalistic overtone. :ohwell:

Canada sells the most Uranium in the world. According to intelligence reports I have read, that Uranium in Iran, came from Canada. A shady business they run, when they enable certain countries the key component to make nukes. So don't act high and mighty because you are in Canada. They have many rediculous, protectionist policies in Canada. Just look at how they try to protect their culture by making it illegal to show more than a certain percentage of foreign media content. :shadedshu

Why would someone worry about their country's culture being forgotten? It just keeps your country stale and self indulgent.
