St. Catharines is a growing city, constantly adapting and changing to meet new trends and experiences for the community and visitors. Just like the always changing city we live in, technology is something that never stands still. St. Catharines’ Design District is bursting with businesses that specialize in technology, from the latest electronic devices to home appliance technology and even new features in the automotive industry. Gibbys Electronic Supermarket has become known for providing top quality home electronics and the largest selection of car audio components in the Niagara Region and across Canada. In 1964 Gibbys Audio Video opened its doors in St.Catharines as an appliance repair facility, then gradually a video rental outlet. Finally, Gibbys emerged as a home electronics, audio/video store.

This marked the beginning of an exciting journey to national recognition for Gibbys across Canada. FSD Robotics specializes in automation and robotics parts and services.
