Dear Valued Customers:
Update: Durham Regional Council has announced mandatory mask wearing in indoor spaces. Based on the current information we have, certain persons will be exempted from the mask laws. Node-1 Computers will not discriminate against persons with regard to mask wearing. We respect your right to privacy and trust in your discretion to identify yourself as exempt. Basically it is not our business what your physical or mental health issues are, nor do we want to harass or cause extra stress in these troublesome times to persons with exempted conditions. Please note our views do not affect access to the mall, at this time we do not know what their policies and procedures will be.
Update: As there has been some loosening of restrictions, the Midtown Centre is now open to public access on limited hours. This means we are now publicly accessible and open extended hours. We are committed to our customers and their needs as such we are committed to opening Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. as we see how things are progressing. If things are returning quickly we will be returning to Monday to Thursday 9-5 and Friday 9-4, in compliance to mall restrictions and our normal hours.
**Update: Following advice from Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health, on April 3, 2020, Ontario updated the list of essential businesses that can remain open. The restrictions are aimed at further reducing contact between people and stopping the spread of COVID-19. By 11:59 p.m. Saturday, April 4, 2020, businesses that are not identified on this list must close their physical locations.
Node-1 Computers is committed to our community and customers during this time of hardship and as an identified essential service will continue to support security/surveillance systems and computing products. At this time due to restrictions, our store location has limited public access. We are in store normal business days (Monday to Friday) at 9 to 11 or later as demand requires. If you contact us during these hours we will assess your needs and arrange to give you the required support. Outside of these hours we may not be immediately available; but if you leave a message or email us we will be checking both during our normal business hours and responding accordingly.
As a measure against the spread of COVID-19, Ontario Premier Doug Ford has ordered all non-essential businesses to close as of 11:59pm Tuesday, March 24, for at least 14 days. Ontario Government has released lists of essential services, considering that IT and security services are essential services, our company will maintain those services unless otherwise notified. In order to reduce the risk of spread of COVID-19 our retail operations are publicly inaccessible until receive further notice. You can feel free to leave a message at our phone 905-436-6626 or contact us via email or our contact page. We will be returning calls and messages, and supporting all we can a safe and controlled manner.
We hope you, your families and employees are doing well and keeping safe.
