Shopping for tech stuff in So Cal is great because we get all the latest
gear the minute it gets off the boat from Asia. Staples and Best Buy do
not have the selection they once did as electronics sales shift more onto
the Internet. People on the East Coast pay more for the same stuff
because it must be shipped across America first. Sadly, Fry's
Electronics (shown above) has
gone out of business
due to things like Amazon.com stealing their
sales and the Coranovirus pandemic closing their stores. SAD. RIP you
kooky retail electronics wonderland. You might try the
Best Buy at La Brea and Santa Monica
strictly online shopping I recommend NewEgg.com.
There are several other sites that are just as good but New Egg is in Whittier.
That's in LA just 12 miles from downtown. They can deliver almost anything
in a day or two even with the cheapest shipping. Plus they get everything
new and nifty the minute it comes off the boat from Asia. Long Beach is
where all the Asian imports enter America. Why buy from an East Coast site
that must ship electronics cross country just to get back to where it was
originally imported? I have heard that their customer support is poor
but I have never used it, so you might want to think twice about
spending thousands of dollars there but for smaller purchases I would
definitely reco it.
