PC Geeks, Simlim Square / Overpriced Items and Rude Staff
PC Geeks, Simlim Square #03 - 56 - OVERPRICED!!!
I went to simlim square to buy an extra adapter for my Sony Vaio laptop. As I reached third floor from escalator, I saw this shop PC GEEKS with few adapters hanging on the wall for display. So I approached this teenager guy sitting there to ask if he had sony vaio adapter and how much was it for. He immediately said he had and he dint even ask me the voltage or model number of my laptop. Anyway I knew I wanted 19.5V adapter, and he had it. He told me a price and I asked him if there can be any discount. He said, it’s the best price in this mall and he cannot offer any discount. As I dint have much time so I paid for it and took the invoice for the item. Thereafter, I went to 4th floor to get a VGA cable and I saw a newer version of the adapter in a shop on 4th floor. Just out of curiosity, I asked the price of adapter and to my shock, they were selling it for 30 PERCENT CHEAPER. I was really dejected and frustrated, so I went back to PC Geeks. I asked for refund of price difference or the full item return, first this guy acted so rude then he said “life is not fair” and smiled.
What a ripoff!! Lesson well learnt, I strongly advise everyone to enquire prices on 4th floor before buying any item from this shop.
