In the fall of 2007, HBCWeb moved from downtown winnipeg into a new office space, located on the most popular strip in the city, Corydon Avenue. The building is comprised of two houses that had been built together, into one. Before taking ownership, the building was used as a wedding dress shop and bridal boutique. It featured wall-to-wall carpet, with big chandeliers hanging everywhere and mirrors everywhere. Now obviously this wasn't the ideal setup to spawn creativity, so the company founders went to work. Carpet was ripped out, replaced by hardwoods, walls were put up and painted, and the building was transformed into a seriously cool place to work in everyday.

While building my business, I could not have imagined how crutial a website would possibly be. I did my research and recieved multiple bids from dozens of potential website companies. I chose HBCWeb.com in the end because of their endless resourses, the quality of their existing websites and the personability of their staff. From the inital contact, the web development managerwas professional and was able to answer my questions and concerns efficantly and with great knowledge of the field.
Throughout the actual production of my site RoundersNetwork.com, HBCWeb.com's staff was there to hold my hand every step of the way. While I completly believe in my business model, I am not versed on the technical sides of web design/production. I couldn't have imagined how much work goes into making a website. The production team were completely at my disposal, making sure I understood what was going on and how each step is completed.
As I look forward to the future I have complete confidence in HBCWeb.com and what they can do for my business ventures. I have already began working with them on building my next website.
