Best shops for buying electrical appliances
By Matt Clear
We reveal the best and worst shops for buying electrical appliances, according to our survey of thousands of shoppers.
Our annual shopping survey is the UK's biggest - and the results can tell you which electrical appliance shops will give you the best experience, and which you’d be better off avoiding.
You can trust our ratings because they’re based on the opinions of hundreds of customers who have recently shopped there.
Apple, Argos and Currys PC World are among the big brands included in our survey. We also have results for phone shops, as well as supermarkets that sell electrical items - such as Asda and Tesco.
You can use our results to tell you pretty much everything you need to know about the experience of shopping in a store, including what its range of products is like, the standard of its customer service, and more. So if you think you'll want help deciding on your next purchase, check the customer service star ratings to make sure you shop somewhere with great staff.
