Jumbo is the daddy of all things electric in Dubai. Founded in 1974, it’s one of the largest Sony distributors in the world, and has 16 outlets dotted around the city. But Jumbo can also boast an enviable supporting cast of all the other leading international brands.
Such a wide selection of brands comfortably makes it the shop of choice, although it is hard to drag yourself away from the latest sleek and sexy stuff from Sony, with epic Wega televisions and Vaios aplenty. The store layout is very customer-orientated and aims to be interactive, so you can comfortably road test potential buys, such as the Playstation 3 and PSP, repeatedly if necessary. A factor to take into consideration with Sony, though, is the higher prices.
