Who Says Size Matters?

    Grand & Toy introduces Website Design & Hosting:
    A new service that enables small businesses to make a big impact online

    TORONTO, April 3 /CNW/ - In today's fast-paced business world, customers
expect every company - large or small - to have an online presence. And with
more than two million small businesses across Canada(1), having a professional
website is not a luxury, but a necessity in order to stay competitive. To show
that they understand and support the needs of Canadian small businesses, Grand
& Toy has launched Website Design & Hosting services, an easy and affordable
way for entrepreneurs and smaller organizations from coast-to-coast to be
available 24/7.
    "At Grand & Toy we know that time and money are limited for small
business owners, but we also know the potential of growing that business with
a simple website offering. That is why with our new Website Design & Hosting
services, small businesses can have a site that looks as professional as the
large corporations at a fraction of the cost," said David Addison, General
Manager, Services, Grand & Toy. "More than 70 per cent of Canadians use the
Internet regularly(2) for everything from gathering information to making
purchases, so companies that are not available to their customers online are
simply losing business to the competition."
    Whether a company needs to update an existing website, or create a brand
new one, Grand & Toy can deliver an impactful, customized website design in a
matter of a few weeks, for as little $499.95 CDN. In addition to design
services, Grand & Toy also offers affordable hosting plans starting at
$11.95 CDN per month. From basic plans to premium offerings, Grand & Toy has
an option that's perfect for everyone.
    With easy-to-use tools that help build and grow an online business, 24/7
technical support and network monitoring, and a 99.9 per cent uptime
guarantee, Grand & Toy will ensure that every website is available whenever a
customer needs it.
