Appliances, Electronics and Hardware stores
Electronics, hardware and kitchen appliances are available in Thailand with the same brands you find at home. Like with everything else that is imported in Thailand, however, they are subject to high import taxes, which makes the familiar brands less attractive. There are many local brands available at significantly lower prices. Thailand is major hub for the production of electronics so it makes sense to consider locally produced items. The most popular chains and stores are:
Powerbuy is a large electronics chain selling anything from camera’s to vacuum cleaners. They have a large selection and good service and even include a three year guarantee. You can find Powerbuy in Central Stores, Zen Stores and some Tops supermarkets.
Home Pro (http://www.homepro.co.th)
Home Pro is a large DYI and hardware store with many branches around Bangkok. They are well stocked and offer many services such as personalised assistance at your home. They are naturally most focused on DYI items but have electronics and appliances as well.
