Can anyone reccomend or give me any information on a good electrical shop in PDC or any of the resorts near by i may be interested in buying an I Pad or camera during our stay there.
Thanks

Don't bother.
It will be the same price or less at home if you buy it over the internet plus you will have full consumer protection unlike Lanza.
Surely you have read about the number of rip offs in electronic shop in Lanza?!

Absolutely right. I live in Lanzarote, but get electronic stuff from UK.

Hi
No such thing as a good electrical shop in the resorts......at best you will merely buy a sub-standard piece of rubbish.......at worst you may buy an empty box AND find your credit/debit card details cloned and used to make major purchases here or further afield :( :(
Plenty of threads on here and other websites warning people of the dangers of using these shops.......ignore them at your own risk :evil: :evil:

And, as I'm sure you meant to add Lanzalocal, it isn't a problem confined to Lanzarote - you can get the same treatment almost anywhere people are in a holiday mood somewhere claiming "duty free" or "low tax ".

No, there are several perfectly good shops for electrical and electronics items, such as Milar which is like Currys.
