Established in 1982 as a "one store operation" located in Vancouver, Future Shop has since expanded to include hundreds of stores across the country, becoming Canada’s largest national retailer and e-tailer of consumer electronics.
During the late 1980s, Future Shop followed an aggressive growth strategy, rapidly expanding operations into the provinces of Alberta, Manitoba and Ontario. This strategy continued in the 1990s, as the company added new stores across the country.
Future Shop and its employees are dedicated to providing consumers with expert service and the latest digital products, including a wide selection of brand name televisions, computers, audio, entertainment software and hardware, as well as appliances – all backed by a lowest price guarantee.
Future Shop’s website, www.futureshop.ca, has been a hugely successful venture. One of the top retail sites in Canada, it sees millions of monthly visitors. Futureshop.ca also hosts an online community forum and tech blog called Tech Yeah for technology beginners and tech-savvy experts to exchange ideas, reviews, tips and other consumer electronics information (www.futureshop.ca/techyeah).
Future Shop recently introduced a new web integrated small format Futureshop.ca store concept to the Canadian market which offers consumers a seamless experience between in-person and online shopping.
