Under the Simply Spotlight

Episode 4

By Barry Donnelly

Over on our Instagram page (@simplycomputing.ca),  we have been sharing photos showcasing the cities our stores are located in. In February we featured Abbotsford and in March we showcased some great photos from Vancouver. This month our attention turns to the Okanagan and our featured city is Kelowna. In conjunction with this, we also want to turn our Simply Spotlight to Ken, our Kelowna store manager.
