Lebanon finally got itself a real online shopping website! Mizalla.com
Mizalla, who launched their service just today, are promising to be an online mall where business owners can setup their virtual store to sell their goods online (check their “Businesses” page), which means the range of available items (mainly electronics) is expected to expand.
I’m still not sure how do their prices compare to the market but I’ll make sure to let you know about it. Meanwhile do check their website, it’s really worth a shot.
I compared prices between Mizalla and Khoury Home, and they were both selling TV’s and surround systems at the same price.
However, you can get some computer accessories like external hard drives and SD card for a cheaper price at PCandParts.com. For example a Seagate 1TB external hard drive is selling for $132 at Mizalla, while it sells for $112.2 at PC and Parts ($102+vat).
Still when it came to digital cameras, PC and Parts turned to be a bit more expensive.
So prices are very close to what’s available in the market.
It’s better to buy SD memory cards from PC and Parts. 16GB cards class 4 are priced at $41.8 from PC and Parts while class 2 16GB cards are priced at $37.5 from Mizalla. Note that class 4 cards are twice as fast as class 2.
I’ll stop the comparisons as I guess you now have an idea.
