OWC will be closed Monday, September 2nd, 2013 in observance of Labor Day.
We will return to normal business operations tomorrow, September 3rd, beginning at 12:01AM CT with Live Chat. Our normal telephone support resumes at 8:00AM CT.
We wish a happy and safe holiday to all of our customers.
Today is No Pants Day, a participatory holiday that falls on the first Friday in May and has roots in Austin, TX. Since 1997, people there have been encouraged to go about their day without wearing any pants.
According to Real Austin Texas, “The idea is that the more people running around in their underwear, the more fun and joy there will be in the world for at least one day.”
What has this to do with OWC? Well, since Other World Computing has recently opened our newest location in Austin, TX we’ve decided to embrace the local customs and holidays. That means we’re taking Casual Friday to a whole new level today. As the old proverb states, “When in Rome, do as the Romans do.” So off with the pants!
For those in our Texas or Nevada locations, I’m sure today is plenty of fun – walking around like you’ve just plumb forgotten to put your pants on.
But those of us in northern Illinois are finding it a bit cold outside still for this to be comfortable.
On my drive into work, it was 39 degrees outside and raining. While I never really get a chance to show off my collection of superhero boxer shorts, trust me, no one wants to see this nerd’s cold, wet legs.
But for those of you bold enough to liberate your legs today – Happy No Pants Day to ya’ll!
All of you who want to get those great OWC products you got for Christmas set up before the new year (or to get more stuff, because we can always use more) will be glad to hear that the OWC Call Center will be open until 10:00pm CT tonight to answer your tech questions or place your last-minute orders. Additionally, Live Chat support will be open until at 10pm tonight.
We will be closed Tuesday for New Year’s Day which is a national holiday with no standard delivery services operating nationwide.
Live Chat will resume on Wednesday 1/2/13 at 12:01AM, CST, and our Sales, Technical Support, and Customer Service lines will re-open at 8:00AM.
OWC is wishing everyone a happy, healthy, and SAFE New Year!
From all of us at Other World Computing, we would like to wish all of our customers a very happy and safe holiday season.
OWC will be available for ‘last minute’ tech support, customer service, or delivery status assistance requests until 7:30 PM CST today via telephone (with our live chat option available until 8:00PM), and we will be closed tomorrow for the Christmas holiday.
Live Chat will resume on Wednesday 12/26/12 at 12:01AM, CST, and our Sales, Technical Support, and Customer Service lines will re-open at 8:00AM.
