After almost 22 years of operation, which saw great expansion through the 2000s and 2010s, NCIX has completed the closure of all their retail stores and filed for bankruptcy.

NCIX, a major Canadian electronics retailer, has now filed for bankruptcy. Established in April 1996 with a single retail store, a year later the company grew to include a website for Canada and the United States. The 2000s saw new retail and shipping centers in western Canada, followed by an expansion into eastern Canada and California (US) in the 2010s. Fortunes took a turn in mid-2017 with the closing of retail stores in eastern Canada, followed by the winding up of their remaining stores in the West.

NCIX was also one of the early pioneers of the ‘company run’ style of Youtube reviews with their NCIX Tech Tips channel, originally based on the high-energy personality of Linus Sebastian, and more recently by a team of presenters who used humor to differentiate themselves.

TechSpot is reporting that store staff has told customers to initiate a charge-back through their banks and credit card companies for any non-filled orders.

I grew up in a family surrounded by technology, starting with my father loading up games for me on a Commodore 64, and later on a 486. In the late 90's and early 00's I started learning how to tinker with Windows, while also playing around with Linux distributions, both of which gave me an interest for learning how to make software do what you want it to do, and modifying settings that aren't normally user accessible. After this I started building my own computers, and tearing laptops apart, which gave me an insight into hardware and how it works in a complete system. Now keeping up with the latest in hardware and software news is a passion of mine.
