    Big white building looks a bit like a ship ? Carpark to the side you look down to the beach and a McDonald's on the corner just befor the marina

    Re: Asian electronic shops tactics to rip off their customers

    Although passing the shop many times I have never bought anything from HARRY'S in the alley at the bottom of the top square on the San Blas, however a very close lady friend visited the shop last week on my recommendation as her Motorola phone needed a charger, at best these are 5 to 8 euros anywhere but she foolishly mentioned to Harry or whoever was tending shop that she had left her charger in the UK and needed one urgently. Totally taking advantage of the fact that she was a woman he told my lady friend that he had just one left and charged her 15-95 euro. Be very aware and if you frequent HARRY'S then question everything you consider buying as the very SAME BRANDED charger is on sale at China City for 2-95 euro, even Motorola's RP is only £4-95 in the UK. Needless to say that I will never use or recommend HARRY'S to anyone so that extra 10 euros he overcharged my friend will lose him a great deal of money and devalue his reputation in the future.

    The only place I would trust is JAP in the Arona Grand hotel LC. He's been there years, totally trustworthy.
