    Question Electronics and Other Home Items

    We are thinking about moving to the North Coast area next year. We will be bringing a container but all our electronics are 220 so we will need new stuff. Are there any stores (in Santiago maybe) like an American style Circuit City or simply electronics stores that carry good quality stuff for a decent price?

    By the way, I read that Costco is in Santiage. Any truth to that?

    Thanks for the help.

    Pricesmart are in Santiago, think Cosco but much smaller.

    For the widest selection and maybe best pricing, you will need to travel to Santo Domingo. All depends on your needs? You might find Santiago is fine.

    This topic has been discussed many, many times.

    For the electronics that you really want to keep, you can buy converters that will operate them properly here.

    Not necessarily.
    It all depends what power supply you'll have.
    We have two systems in our house (110 /220 V), although both have 60 Hz.
    For many electric devices this does not matter, some motors may heat up however.
