Where to Shop Apple Gadgets and Accessories During Quarantine
Need a gadget upgrade?
(SPOT.ph) The enhanced community quarantine has forced many to transition to a work-from-home setup, and while it might be nice being able to stay home even on workdays, it can be tricky when you don't have the proper tools. If you're worried about not being able to go out to shop for gadgets and accessories when what you have at home seem to be giving up, don't worry: Power Mac Center, Switch, and Beyond The Box are offering pick-up or delivery services so you can get your Apple (and even non-Apple!) needs during quarantine.
Power Mac Center
Need a phone or laptop upgrade? You can shop phones, tablets, chargers, speakers, earbuds, and more when you browse through Power Mac Center's website. Just place your order, pay through their accepted payment methods, and input all the necessary details for shipping. Delivery takes a maximum of seven days upon payment. If you happen to live in the Quezon City area, Power Mac Center also accepts pick-up orders at their Eastwood branch. If you're in Makati, you can also opt to pick up your items in their Greenbelt 3 store. Take note that their stores will only entertain those who have already placed an order online—they also have a Viber community where you can place an order!
Switch has set up a Viber community where customers can join and inquire about the availability of the gadget or accessory they want to purchase. Note that only selected items are available, but they're hoping to make their full range of gadgets and accessories available soon. Apart from the Viber community, you can also place an order through Switch's Facebook page or Instagram account. Take note that their operating hours are from Monday to Friday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Delivery fee is P300 and takes about four to five days after payment confirmation. They accept credit and debit card payments as well as online bank transfer, checks, GCash, and EmailPay. You may also opt to pay for cash, but only if you're picking up your item from their stores.
Beyond the Box
Beyond the Box has a "Work From Home Essentials" collection that you can shop if you're looking for things that can make your remote-work experience a bit easier. All you have to do is send a message directly to their Facebook page to get their latest product list so you can see what items are available. You may also place your order through their page. If the item you were planning to buy isn't in the list, you can let their representative know so they can inform you when they stock up. They accept payments made through bank transfer, debit and credit card, GCash, GrabPay, Coins.ph, and over-the-counter payments (Cebuana Lhuillier, M Lhuillier, 7-Eleven). Take note that Beyond the Box only accepts orders for pick-up.
