Hello all!

If you have been paying attention to our social media channels over the past few weeks you may have noticed something.

We are opening a Canadian location in Vancouver! This will allow us to give even better service to all of our Canadian customers without dealing with the horrors of international shipping.

Here are a couple photos of the construction and stay tuned for more announcements!

Oh man, I have a friend who is going to be thrilled about this. The aforementioned fees have kept him from ordering for about 5 years now. Not much longer. Big%20Smile

VERY nice! Us end users always love pics, keep them coming. Maybe a video or two of your stores like that, I haven't run across any pics like that of other outlets, or any videos of your spots you have all bundled with DS gear that looks so nice and sweet.

One last note .... Has our good Canadian neighbors to the north finally been conquered? If they haven't already, they gotta' be on their last legs by now!

Can't even explain how pumped I am about this! Bought my first real gaming PC from you guys about 5 years ago and had it shipped to Canada. As good as the system was, I wasn't sure if I could justify all those border fees again.

So excited that it's no longer an issue!

Best thing about the show-room is that they've arranged the cases from smallest to largest toward the back... Otherwise they'd put the Aventum up front and no one would see anything else.   

(BTW, I see there are no chairs... I wonder why... )

That makes sense Alex.

For future reference that may help canadian customers, I know dell offers this financial thing where they debited straight out of your bank account. So without a credit check, that may be an option ( I work in a bank, typically speaking debiting from bank is considered low risk ).   


Do you think that might be something that can be offered to us canadians?

I'll inform the team, but we might not be able to do something like that as we are not as large as Dell.
