City Computer officially began operation on June 1st, 2004 at 104 East Main Forest City in a small corner building near the center of town. After 8 months of growth it outgrew that location and operations were moved to a larger building on the same block. Within 9 more months another move was necessitated due to continuing growth and on November 1st, 2005 City Computer opened the doors to its newly purchased and renovated facilities on 159 West Main Street in Forest City.

Since 2005, City Computer has been honored with awards every year in the "Best of Rutherford County" featurette published by the local newspaper "The Daily Courier".
