Is Pacific Mall all its hyped up to be when it comes to tech deals?

Everyone says that Pacific Mall has great deals and if you're looking for a cell phone or some gadget you gotta go to Pacific Mall. Now I'm usually on top of my game when it comes to finding great deals across the gta when it comes to electronic gadgets and such but I've never bought a single item from Pacific Mall apart from food. Am I missing something here?

Has P Mall ever had good deals on anything? Every time I go there it's either crap being sold for too much and decent stuff being sold for way too much.

there is nothing there now. Canada computers has moved out of pmall. The tech stores left in there are completely crap with junk items at astronomical prices and they don't allow price matching. The cellphone cases and accessories can be bought on DX and ebay for 1/5th of the price. I only go there for the snacks on the 2nd level.

Ive been there a couple of times and couldn't stand the place. Cramped little crappy stores, no good deals that I could find personally, funny smell throughout the place. The only reason I would go to Pacific Mall ever again personally is to eat at mongolian grill outside. But even then, I would rather go to the one by lawrence and don mills just to avoid the honda indy 500 / bumper cars in the pacific mall parking lot.

No. There are no tech deals at Pacific Mall. I actually find them to be quite over priced. The only edge Pacific Mall has is that the stores import certain tech gadgets from Asia that aren't available otherwise in Canada.

Only for bubble tea.

Also needs to be moved to Shopping Discussion forum.

You're biased. You worked there so it's obvious you got bored of Pacific Mall quickly. Like how I'm biased because I used to go every week to play at Orbit...

Now Pacific Mall is only good for snacks and chilling around with friends. Can't even buy DVDs there :(

I only go to PMall just for those waffle thingies. The circle ones haha...
Egg waffles! <3



Lets see I bought R4, PS2 games, laptop, and a cellphone case there. All at a great price for bargaining, well more like I just annoyed the crap out of them and they gave me a bigger discount.
Yes I purchased a laptop, it was a Fujitsu! Truth be told this was all in the past though, now I don't know what to buy there...
I love Witcher 3!!

I wouldn't buy a laptop there. Too much gray market stuff and warrantee through the retailer is always iffy.

Glad I'm not missing out on any incredible saving at Pacific Mall! On a different note, I brushed shoulders with Seal there one Saturday a few years back...He looked like he was in a hurry so I didn't bother him for an autograph. lol
