I don't know how NCIX actually is, but as a person with access to a Microcenter only a few minutes away - it must suck for a local computer parts retailer to close.

So wait... The stores closed. They're shutting down the whole thing or taking steps towards reorganizing so they don't have to? The article is very slim.

Not too sure on that. The site is still up. Most of the store locations have now been taken over by Canada Computers.

NCIX hasn't made a statement yet, but The WAN Show (Linus Tech Tips podcast) made it seem like there was no hope and they're most likely just shutting down entirely.

Like Wolf said; Canada Computers took over a number of the physical locations.
