Just to let you know that the new FactoryDirect.ca store opened in Ottawa on St. Laurent and Donald. I noticed it while biking in the area.

factorydirect.ca Canada's Computer Liquidator is your computer peripherals retail and wholesale computer liquidation source. 9 Stores in Ontario, Canada.http://www.factorydirect.ca/static/index.htm

It seems to be some sort of discount electronics store. I've never shopped there, even online. One of my PC friends mentioned they would be opening a store here.

Factory Direct used to be a good shop, but they recently started carrying really junkie, refurbished personal electronic equipment, moving away from value-priced computer components.

Stay away. I bought a couple of refurbed Logitech USB headsets and both of them were broken. Calls and emails to the company about setting up an RMA went unanswered.

Yeah, I'll have to check it out and see what it's like. My PC friends seem to have a bit more cheaper tastes than I do, and I saw a sign about "Final Sales" or something to that effect, so I do have some reservations. But it is a brick and motar store so it shouldn't be hard to contact them, you just go to the store.

stores like that are good for buying very cheap recordable media and for almost throw away items like usb hubs
usually things like hubs are so cheap you can afford to buy 2 and keep one for spare

Yeah, I've shopped a few times at TigerDirect.ca. Haven't had any problems. Bought a conference phone from there at work. TigerDirect.ca has a lot good things.

The selections is rather old... but good if you want to build cheap stuff.

I don't know how long a computer store like that can survive, it offers really cheap and possibly hard to find parts for older computers. But local shops in Ottawa and the region have been struggling a lot.
