Our history starts in 1989 when our local family began as a computer retailer then known as CCC Computer and operating from flea markets, mall kiosks and home. In January 1994 Tom opened our first retail location at 153 Simcoe St. S. and we changed our name Node-1 Computers. In 2002 the store was moved to 149 Simcoe St. S. In 2010 we moved again to 150 Simcoe St. S. Just shy of the 26th anniversary of our store opening we moved once again to the Midtown Centre on December 10, 2019. The company is still owned and operated by Ron and Richard now at 150 Simcoe St. S., Tom has since retired, we are brothers and still inhabitants of the local area. We have a vested stake in your satisfaction.
