Whenever I go to a mall, I always make it a point to visit all the gadgets shops inside whether I buy something or not. It’s been my habit and I never get tired of it, especially nowadays when I have to be updated on which products are already available here in the Philippine market. I went to the newly-opened East wing of the EDSA Shangri-La Mall recently, and this new retail outlet caught my attention.
Pismo Digital Lifestyle is not just another retail store that offers the usual stuff you’ll find in other gadget shops. They also sell other novelties that you wouldn’t just find anywhere else. What I thought would be a 5-minute “I’m just looking around” store visit was extended to an hour as I tested and played with their items on display.
Not all stores have demo units for potential customers to check out with. Pismo has the latest smartphones from the top brands on display like the BlackBerry Z10 and Q10, Sony Experia and HTC phone models. If you’re looking for tablets, they also have Apple’s iPads and Samsung Galaxy Tabs you can tinker with.
Cases are also available in the store to protect your previous smartphones and tablets with style.
I love bags! I’ve been scouting for a new bag to house my MacBook, iPad and other accessories. Pismo has a lot of these on their shelves.
Lomography enthusiasts can buy their new cameras here. Underwater cameras from Pentax are also on sale.
Audiophiles will surely appreciate the headphones and speakers being shown here in Pismo. You can find both wired and wireless speakers for your portable media player or to complement the HD TV in your living room.
And speaking of headphones, look what they have here.
These Diamond Tears headphones from Monster look stunning! A fashionista should have a pair of these beauties. I tested one of them with my iPod and they sound very good.
Quite surprised to see they have toys here, and this made my stay in Pismo a lot longer.
One of the staff demonstrated the Parrot AR.Drone and controlled it with an iPad Mini. So cool!!! I’ll be writing a separate post about it soon!
The Pismo staff are very friendly and courteous. I noticed how patient they were in explaining their products to the customers. And they don’t seem to be snobbish like other high end shops in the metro. They welcome everyone visiting their store.
If you happen to be in the Ortigas area, visit Pismo Digital Lifestyle and check out their goods. You don’t have to buy anything, but if you do, they can assure you that your shopping experience with them will be a pleasurable one.
