Thanks Blossom.

Incidentally I read this on the BBC this morning about Black Friday:

"It said that the "overwhelming majority" - some 87% of those goods - were cheaper at other times of year."

"An LG 60 inch TV was advertised at £799 by Amazon on Black Friday. By the end of December it was £150 cheaper"

For us it's a case of needs must, so hoping to find a bargain now.
Paul.

They don't appear to have an English version of the site - best I can do
is to translate it

Thanks for that Steve, that will do nicely but very surprising that they don't offer an option on their site for English. Confused

BTW there local store is not actually on 1st April Street, it's in the side road opposite LIDL. Smile

Haven't been in but thought it was on the corner when I drove past - though
admittedly I was paying more attention to the road Anxious

Had a squint at a few shops and the current favorite is Scandia with a 49 inch LG 4K HDR Smart TV for 389 euros.
Did not know about Public so will have a look there tomorrow.
Will have another look in Stephanis as the salesman said they will not get details of their Black Friday TV's, models and prices, until tomorrow and not able to sell them until Friday.
Seems to be a lot of Strong TV's and Thompson TV's about but have no idea about quality. Anybody got one?
Thanks to all that replied.
Paul.

I have bought from Scandia in the past - no problems and good after service.

Thomson TV's - one of the best sellers in France and a 120-yr old company -
yep I never knew that either [

Did a bit of Googling this morning and found this:

Turns out they are made by Vestel in Turkey. Japanese firm Hitachi no longer make TVs. Doesn't mean they are bad or course but maybe a tad unproven?
Did not see a Hitachi TV anywhere else yesterday.

No idea also about Public and we have bought several things from Scandia in the past and always found the salesman helpful. So they are still the front runner at the moment.

Scandia charge 25 euros for delivery and installation (which I would normally do myself), but for that they remove the old equipment which for me is 2 old very heavy plasma screens. So worth it.

Will do a final check today.

Paul.

Settled on the LG from Scania for 389. Public had exact same model for 449.
Nice looking shop so will stay on the ‘to visit ‘ list.
Thanks again for all the feedback.
