If you're looking for that perfect technological gift for someone or if you just want to pick up something for yourself, here are some of the best places to go around Oklahoma City.
1. Best Buy
Locations: 5801 N May, 7202 S I-35 Service Rd (Crossroads)
and 2135 W Memorial Rd (Quail Springs)
2. SearsSears is a first thought for appliances, tools or automotive needs, but it also has a fairly nice electronics selection. Of course, you have the good news-bad news of the attentive employee, always there when you have a question but also always there when you just want to browse. But the stores offer a very comfortable shopping experience, much more so than the crowds you'll face at a Best Buy or Wal-Mart, and with the unfortunate closure of Circuit City, Sears jumps on to my list.
Locations: 4400 S. Western Ave., 6909 E. Reno Ave. (Heritage Park Mall/Midwest City), 3201 W. Main St. (Norman) and 2501 W. Memorial Rd. (Quail Springs)
3. TargetOf course you won't find the appliances here, but Target's electronics department is surprisingly extensive. All the gadgets you could want and some good prices put Target on the list. A comfortable shopping atmosphere and generally good customer service puts them higher than others. Once again, you won't find clerks with unending electronics knowledge, but they can still be occasionally helpful.
Locations: 800 SW 44th St, 5400 N May Ave (Quail Springs)
and 7305 SE 29th St (Midwest City)
4. Wal-MartYes, yes, it's Wal-Mart. But it's tough to ignore the fact you'll find some good deals here on electronics. Not to mention the fact that Wal-Mart is typically very good about returns should you have problems. Cameras, televisions, DVD players, computers, game systems, portable electronics... Wal-Mart has it all. They have a tendency to put returned items on the shelf, something I personally dislike, but overall it's a quick electronics source.
Locations: Numerous. Check this map.
5. Conn'sYou have all of the options at Conn's, from computers and gaming to audio/video, cameras, appliances and more. It's a one stop shop for the big stuff, and there's a nice selection of high-end products as well as bargains to be had.
Locations: 3315 NW Expressway #B&C
7301 South Pennsylvania
and 1600 S. Broadway (Edmond)
