At the start of the first lockdown in March 2020, Computer Division quickly responded to the needs of the local area by providing computers to people for free, allowing them to keep in touch with family members and carry out essential tasks like ordering food online. The shop also provided a delivery service to customers in quarantine.
Computer Division Director, Azam Haider said:
“In partnership with other businesses in our street, we wanted to help others. From the start of the pandemic, we received donations of laptops and devices from people in the local area. We then gave them back out to others in need through working closely with our Stirling Aid foodbank.”
“Also, our shop neighbour and friend, Claire from The Hemp Room Café also gave away free coffee and soup to those who were out and about. Together we were able to keep our customers and community safe and connected.”
