Camera / camcorder shops
Date: October 20, 2005 12:32PM
When we were in PDC this year, we noticed a lot of shops selling cameras/camcorders/electrical goods etc.
Having seen the warnings on here about being 'ripped off', we stayed well clear.
However, even without the warnings, you just wouldn't go into these shops would you ?
They look dodgy from the outside (with columns of camera boxes stuck to the wall), and from the look of them, I wouldnt trust the shopkeepers with my cat (and I haven't even got one !!).
It amazes me therefore that tourists do buy from them, and then wonder why they get ripped off.
I always go with the saying "if its too good to be true", then it probably is.
You wouldn't spend £100s in this country in a back street shop on goods without a guarantee etc, so why do it on holiday ?
Stay away !!
