Computer hardware retailer NCIX files for bankruptcy

First signs of trouble in July

North American and Canadian shoppers have probably heard the popular online and retailer computer hardware NCIX before. Founded as Netlink Computer Burnaby, British Columbia, the retailer was a local store before becoming the online giant it's better known as today. Before bankrupting, NCIX opened several retail stores in British Columbia and Ontario and a distribution center in California.

At the moment we don't know what caused the bankruptcy, but first signs of trouble had already appeared in July when NCIX closed all its retail locations in Ontario. Few months after, NCIX closed a bunch of retail stores in its home market of British Columbia as well. By the end of November, all NCIX retail outlets had closed. The company also stopped fulfilling online orders around and opened a thread on its forums for users that wanted request refunds and cancellations.

A few days ago, news began circulating on forums that NCIX had filed for bankruptcy. The proof can be found by searching for NCIX's registered name, Netlink Computer Inc., in the government of British Columbia's court services' database. Where NCIX went wrong is still open to debate. Competition from Amazon and Newegg could be the cause.
