Price Smart. Limited selection but definitely the best prices on the island. Or bring in your checked bag - it's worth the schlep.

Prices at "AMC Unicon" near Ling's weren't bad either (the one near Price Smart closed). We bought our microwave and a vacuum there.

I think we've been in that store too. At the time we were pricing large appliances to furnish a unit in Palma Real that we were considering.

We bought most of our appliances for our home at PriceSmart. We also bought much of our teak furniture (outdoor and indoor) at Home & Nature which is on the same road as PriceSmart. Many other things such as bedding and curtains, we brought over in our suitcases. (We get to take 4 free suitcases at 75lbs each for each United flight - so we take advantage of that).

We've already reached out to Act1966. Since he owns all of them he has agreed to rent us one when they're not on the island:)

We we went to Home and Nature yesterday. What a great store and very accommodating staff. We put a number of pieces on hold. Thank you for the recommendation!

There is a large Chinese wholesaler in Ponton that is open to the public. Good prices for what you are looking for. Be prepared to spend an hour or 2 navigating the place
