Nineteen Eighty Nine was fantastic to work with. My point of contact, Andrew, was unbelievable. He was incredibly patient, reliable and efficient. Often times, he would fix problems before I even had time to write an email to let him know that there was a problem.

I think that they are a hidden gem and I wish that more agencies were like Nineteen Eighty Nine. Anyone who has the opportunity to work with this agency will be incredibly fortunate.

Every issue we ran into was not only resolved but resolved quickly.

I've work with a ton of talented people over the years but Andrew and his team are amongst the best of the best.

I'm already working with their team on additional projects. 6 out of 5 stars.

Diamonds Direct®

Nineteen Eighty Nine was amazing to work with for our Shopify project Andrew was extremely responsive, helpful and did a fantastic job on our website design and implementation. The turnaround time on work was more impressive than any other web designers we have worked with. If I asked for any edits or changes, they were taken care of right away and always executed correctly. They were a pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend working with this company and will definitely be working with them in the future. Very impressed - thanks Andrew!

Regent Park Collective

I want to express our sincere appreciation for the hand-holding provided by Andrew as we made our first foray into Shopify land. We almost went with another web-designer, until further searches led us to Shopify Experts... what a concept!

Andrew provided guidance, and it always felt like he was personally invested in ensuring that our site was developed and designed to the highest standard. For this, we are very grateful. We continue to receive daily compliments on the look and feel of our site.

Thank you 1989!

Nineteen Eighty Nine is incredible! They were able to do what others said couldn't be done on Shopify. Andrew created our custom store and also contributed valuable ideas to improve our overall business. We couldn't be happier, and will continue to work with them as we grow!


Andrew is actually the best. He's incredibly responsive, detailed, reasonably priced, and FAST. My store is quite complicated since it involves renting multiple items after a person buys a membership, and Andrew really helped me understand the options for how we could bring it to life, and the tradeoffs with each. I'll absolutely continue to work with him going forward.

I needed to migrate my store, platform and card processing & I need to do it fast. I contacted 5 Shopify experts at 5 PM on a Friday. Nineteen Eighty Nine got back to me the next morning. Others got back to me 4-5 days later. I had already gone ahead with Andrew at Nineteen Eighty Nine. They did it all including coming up with and implementing some very good ideas of theirs, that improved the site. We made our 3 week deadline with everything working. Their after support was more than 1st class. What impressed me was that Andrew had an innate understanding that the function of an e-commerce site is to sell goods and not a design exercise. I am completely satisfied with them and when needed will use them again. Maxim

If you are looking for someone to migrate your store, look no further!! I used Nineteen Eighty Nine to migrate my large store from Bigcommerce to Shopify. I wanted someone who could transfer all my customer's accounts and order history as well as my loyalty program and affiliate programs without any change. I was told by several companies that what I wanted couldn't be done. Not only was Andrew able to accommodate all my requests, but he made it even better than I had imagined. He responded to my questions and concerns very quickly, even in the late evening hours. When the work was done, he continued to offer me support with little things that I needed fixed or needed instruction on how to edit. I even messed up my theme and while he was on vacation, he took time to fix it for me quickly! I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Nineteen Eighty Nine to help you with your website needs. He is very knowledgeable and will make you feel comfortable with the changes you are making to your business. Sales are up and I could not be happier!!


Andrew is awesome to work with! Great communication and completed the job faster than expected! Would highly recommend! He assisted us with duplicating our current shopify store and set up TradeGecko. Would definitely work with Andrew again!

Kama Kits

Andrew was incredibly helpful the entire way through our project. I had originally given a pretty ambitious timeline and Andrew met it with no problems. When I came back with edits, new content and questions he was so quick to respond and explain everything to me. In the end I had a lot of specific asks for the site and he met all expectations.

Master of Ceremonies

Andrew and his team are fantastic at what they do. I needed a site built in a matter of days and he more than delivered on the brief. I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a professional to help with all things Shopify!


The team at Nineteen Eighty Nine were very knowledgeable and helpful not only of how to execute what I wanted the site to look like but also providing suggestions and optimizing the use of available features Shopify offers. Their ability to translate the concept of my brand to the look, feel and user interface of the site was amazing. I would recommend going with them to build your site regardless of what it's used for, they will be able to more than just help!


We would highly recommended Nineteen Eighty Nine for website and e-commerce development. We love our Shopify store and Andrew was very enjoyable to work with.

Golf For A Cure

It was a pleasure for Avison Young to work with Nineteen Eighty Nine. Andrew created a great Shopify website for our annual Golf For A Cure charity golf tournament. With his direction, we raised over $50,000 for the Melanoma Network of Canada. Andrew led us through the process of taking everything online for the first time with ease. He streamlined our payment, registration, and sponsorship process - which allowed our committee to focus on the other important aspects of planning and managing the event. We also received numerous compliments from past participants who appreciated the improved changes to our sign up and payment process.
