Glad to here that, there instore pick is a ****ing joke. I placed my order once in the morning, then in the evening coming home from work i went to pick up my order. Instead of just going in and out, i had to wait in the store for about an hour for them to process my order and get my order and do whatever they had to do

As an electronics sales associate, I'm kinda sad to hear about this.

Bad selection = Go out of business. You can buy Macs online. It's better than buying from a store since you can bypass the technically challenged sales rep.

Wonder what you're thinking about right now :laugh:

I'm kind of sad about them going out of business. I know the manager at the one by my house, and he always gives me discounts. I bought a Mac Mini and a 20" ACD last year in June, and he gave me 20% off, and the same on my MacBook Pro and second ACD that I bought a couple months ago.

Expected, I never shop from them, small stores (Toronto) and prices that are not competitive at all.

Good riddance. As an ex-employee I'm glad to see the place finally close up. It's been headed toward this for ages now. Hope they have some going out of business deals! :devil:

(I do however feel for all the employees that will be left jobless.)

How many macs do you buy?


also, you should try to use the word "come", over cum. I know, its longer, but "cum" makes me giggle like I was in 6th grade again.
