Sneakers Computers began in 1995, at a time when the computer industry was just starting to become mainstream. In very little time, Sneakers Computers became so busy that they integrated new systems and parts into its product line. Word of mouth spread, and the demand became so much that within one year, Sneakers doubled in size.
Sneakers Computers is very active in the local community. We have hosted such events, such as raffling off a computer and donating the proceeds to the Woman’s Transition House, donating parts to the Big Brothers & Sisters association, and collecting computers and parts to be given to Computers For Schools. We have also gone to great lengths to help the environment, with refuse bags in hand, picking up more than a dozen full bags of litter from the shoreline of the Esquimalt Lagoon. We also understand the importance of recycling computers when they reach the end of their lifetime, and so we regularly recycle as many as possible: metals, plastic and more.
Sneakers Computers has earned the acknowledgment of several well respected organizations. Sneakers Computers has been profiled in national tech magazines, CDN Canadian Dealer News, and Profit Magazine. Sneakers Computers placed first runner up for the prestigious Business Examiner Retailer of the Year Award for 2004. In 2003, Sneakers Computers won the BBB Better Business Bureau Plaque Award for Business Ethics and Integrity. Sneakers Computers also won the 2004 BBB Better Business Bureau Torch Award (the highest honour) for Business Ethics and Integrity.
