Founded in France in 1954, Fnac became not only one of the most popular electronics and cultural goods chains in Europe, but also in other areas of the world, with almost 200 stores in different countries, including Brazil, Qatar, and Morrocco.
Fnac is a brand that ingeniously bet not only in the offer of great products but also on the shopping experience, with stores that are designed to make the client feel welcome and at home, with warmer lights and better-looking displays than stores like Miró and Media Markt, which make customers feel like they are shopping at a warehouse.
Fnac is one of the coolest stores to shop at, not only because of quality of electronic goods they offer but also because of their rich offer in books, music, accessories, and merchandising.
At Fnac you will find a team of specialized salespeople that can guide you through the world of big screen TVs, tablets, IPads, iPhones, desktop computers, laptops, smartwatches, GPS systems, e-readers, headphones, and more, and you will also find comfortable little nooks with sofas, if you feel like grabbing a book and relaxing for a moment while you flip through the pages.
Address: Arenas de Barcelona shopping mall at Gran Via de Les Corts Catalanes, Diagonal Mar shopping mall at Avinguda Diagonal, 3, El Triangle shopping mall at Plaça de Catalunya, 4, and L’Illa shopping mall at Avinguda Diagonal, 549.
If you need to buy a new computer or any other kind of electronics, we suggest that you take some time to find the best fit for you. Do online research, read reviews from real users and learn about the qualities and defects of some of the products you have in mind. When you feel that you have found the item in question, don’t just buy the first one you see but instead compare prices between the stores and online to guarantee that you will get the best deal possible.
