    Unless DID are using the "Galway" model of pricing like other electrical shops here they should be under cutting everyone in Galway.

    From previous experience having bought white goods and TV etc from DID Tullamore no shop in Galway could touch them on price.

    A friend works in a distributors in Dublin and I got a dishwasher through her. With no markup she could only beat DID's price by about 25 on a 500 euro item.

    I would be surprised if there's any other electrical retailer in Galway which will match them.

    Briarhill is the name of that area and roundabout.

    Nice bright store with good demos but no real bargins at all when I was there. The traffic out of the place was nuts too. Its basically the same as Currys in my opinion. I even recognised staff from Currys.
    They did have 20 x 32" Philips HD Ready LCD TVs as early bird specials that were gone in 5 mins. They were priced at €400. I hope they come down to that price soon everywhere. I'd love one for the bedroom:cool:

    I dropped in there on Sunday - nice store, and handy location for me. Comfy couches for you to sit on and goggle at the screens which is nice!

    One comment tho: they should consider introducing one of those little roundabouts where you turn into the place (not the junction for Claregalway road, I mean the one actually in the business park).
    Driving both in and out in light traffic was a painful experience, as people were reversing and turning and doing all sorts of contortions to get in and out. I can only imagine what it would be like when busy...

    Bah humbug etc!

    I keep trying to tell my wife - 'A bargin is not bargin unless you need it' - but she just won't listen . . . we do need to upgrade some white goods so it's certainly worth a look.

    I'll keep you posted like . . .
