For all of your gadget shopping needs in the UAE.


Store Layout

Similar to Sharaf DG, Jacky’s branch in Dubai Mall was pretty much similarly sized and looked just as congested. Of course, I had no problem in locating any category of products because everything was almost in front of me. Within 3 minutes I had walked from corner to corner, see all sorts of electronics in between.

Staff

Thankfully there wasn’t as much staff as Sharaf DG to crown their store even further. Once again these guys knew where each category of products were, and when I couldn’t find the Canon EOS 600D, I was immediately apologized to and was referred to some other EOS cameras within the same price range and other alternatives from Nikon.

Products

As I mentioned above, apart from the Canon EOS 600D, Jacky’s had everything else in stock and on display.

Ambience

Honestly, the experience at Jacky’s was similar to Sharaf DG, except I saw less yellow colors around the place. A lot of people in a place that’s oozing gadgets at every corner doesn’t make for a free-flowing shop.

About

From auditing to editing, I now test and analyze the latest gadgets and games instead of the latest financial statements. Both jobs are equally intense and rewarding. When I'm not burning up hardware in the name of science, you'll find me nuking in DOTA 2 or engineering in TF2.

    Isn’t the DCC branch of SharafDG larger than its Dubai Mall branch? I noticed this about 2 years back when looking for cooking appliances, the Dubai Mall branch either did not have them or had a very small section with limited items. Having said that, why not opt for the Times Square branch?

    other than DCC most of the Sharaf-DG staff either inexperienced or not willing to explain.Bitter experience from newly opened Abudhabi Mall outlet.The store doesn’t have stock of new gadgets and the offers they promote are on pretty old models. Jackey’s is little bit better in customer dealing experience.To buy any gadget, donn go to carrefour as they are already exhausted with so many quires from visitors
