Electronic devices such as:
- TV sets
- sound systems
are the essentials of modern daily life. They all need to be updated when the time comes. If you are a foreigner in Lithuania and new to electronic appliances shopping in this country you will quickly realize that there are no big and famous electronics chains in Europe or America like MediaMarkt, Euronics, or B&H.
You may want to know what shops serve you the electronic products that you want for prices worth paying.
There are many online retailers for electronics and fewer stores that you can visit and see the product before you buy.
Before buying what you need make sure that it is available in the market. If you will buy a popular brand and a model it will not be a problem for you to find what you are looking for. In case you are looking for a less popular specific product, there are chances that you may not find it easily. It is always a good idea to keep in mind second or third options in case you cannot find your first choice available in Lithuania.
Price comparison sites
The best way to check if the availability and the price of the item you are looking for is to use a local price comparison site.
There are two main price comparison websites in Lithuania that give you the comfort of checking the price of the product you want to buy from the different stores.
When entering the product name and model into the search box you get a list of shops and the prices of the product you want to buy. Sometimes there may be up to twenty shops on the list offering the electronics product you want to buy. All you need to click on the link and check the delivery options before you buy.
Mostly, the electronics shops listed with the offered prices do not have physical stores nearby or at all. Buying from a trusted shop would be good for preventing possible future problems especially taking into consideration the language barrier you have.
