Where to get things in Cebu?

11 posts in this topic

I'm kinda lost as what to do. I'm at Days Inn for the next 5 days and looked online for rentals. Unfurnished seems the best for the budget.

 

So where can I get some good deals on things. Airconditioner, Refrigerator, Pillowtop Mattress, Furniture, Household stuff.

 

What has good warranties with some decent prices?

Look in cebuclassifieds and what you can't find, make a list and ask anyone in the area for what they call a "Surplus" store if you want used items.

Asia Home Appliances. Opon Market. Take a taxi/tricycle.jeepney from or near where you are and go left at the main drag, continuing for about 3 to 4k's I guess. The transport will need to turn right before you get there and go around the back of the whole shootin match. When the vehicle is allowed a left turn, you'll travel a short distance (passing the Firestation on the right) to the main carriageway again where you'll turn left and go back towards the way you came. It's about 150 metres after that left turn, on your right. Ask for a discount, you will always get one, from my experience and they often have specials where goods are substantially reduced.

 

Or catch a taxi to Gaisano Grand Mall (Mactan) and another branch is on the 2nd floor

Sorry to put any damper at all on your info mate, but it's been my experience that this is a very bad country to buy 2nd hand goods. They ask ridiculous and high prices and the goods are often well used. (appliances especially). I'm someone, that when living in Oz all my life, I usually went to 'Op Shops' (charity based shops selling used) and bought a lot of stuff from them coz good quality is often available. I gave up here and personally found it is better value and safer to simply buy new. Only my opinion of course.

I have a friend who has an LG air conditioner for only P7,000 and it is 2 years old.

He rarely used it because he hates dry sinuses and that is the reason he is selling it as well.

It looks new and the last time I saw him use it, it did a great job of cooling.

True, I guess the only way to buy used is if you know the seller personally.

I have not bought used items here and probably am not a good gauge, I just presumed, which is the wrong way to go.

Barack's Trading (BT Surplus) in front of the Waterfront Hotel (in Lahug) on Archbishop Reyes Ave. has a pretty good selection of secondhand Japanese stuff. We bought a lot there. Very cool place.

If you're still looking in August I may have a bunch of stuff to unload myself.
