Newegg Still Working Hard to Launch UK Store @ CES 2016
John Williamson / 6 years ago
CES 2016: Newegg is one of the largest stockists of computer hardware in the USA and offers a huge range of products at competitive prices. This means the consumer usually has some sort of pricing war between Newegg, Amazon and other stores, which results in impressive discounts. Some time ago, the company revealed their plans to enter the UK market and offer a rival to Scan, Overclockers, Aria, Amazon and more! However, there hasn’t been a lot of progress in this area despite the US website allowing you to purchase items in GBP. While this might seem like a good idea, you’re still purchasing the items from a US outlet, and any product is bound by a hefty delivery charge and import duty. Once you take this into account, the final cost will be significantly more than a UK retailer.
Even though Newegg’s UK representative couldn’t give a definitive answer on the UK site’s progress, he did mention that it’s being worked on and developments should be announced this year. Without saying too much, I’m pretty sure you can see at what I’m hinting at and I cannot wait to see how this might shake up the PC hardware market in the UK.
