Our History


  • 1996 - Having an aptitude for diagnosing and fixing computers, Steve Hyde together with his partner Mary Whitman, formed Northants Computer Service.  While Steve repaired PC's above a small shop in Rushden, Mary marketed their services to local companies.

  • 1998 - The need for affordable computers was growing.  Northants Computer Service moved to larger premises in Kettering.

  • 1999 - A second shop in Market Harborough was opened.

  • 2000 to 2009 - Northants Computers became a DSA Accredited Supplier (Disabled Students's Allowance) equipping hundreds of students with their tailored PC's and other computer and specialist ergonomic equipment.  

  • 2010 - Due to conditions at the time and after much consideration, Steve and Mary agree to close the Kettering branch to concentrate fully on expanding the Market Harborough store.  

  • 2017 - Northants Computer Service introduced HomeFix, a convenient Remote PC Repair Service. This was well-received and has since become a popular customer choice.

  • 2018 - About time for a name change...  Welcome to Harborough Computers.

"We take great pleasure in supporting the community of Market Harborough and those of further afield. Like many other small independent shops in Harborough we really appreciate the value in your custom. We would like to sincerely thank everyone for their continued loyalty and support and look forward to seeing you soon."

Steve Hyde and Mary Whitman
