Purchasing Beds, lamps, refrigerator, etc. in Cali

Hi Folks,
Finally I move to Cali next week. Does anyone living in Cali have any suggestions where I should buy everything that I need to furnish the apartment that is rented. I will need beds,refrigerator, stove,couch...everything for the apartment.

Thank you,

Nancy

There are many places but maybe start at Exito for appliances and La 14 (many around the city) which although primarily a grocery store also has many household items.

Also you should visit the malls, like Chipichape, Unicentro, Palmetto, Cosmocentro and Holguines, and more I can't remember:

There's a home depot type store Homecenter in the mall El Ingenio:

Often it is hard to find good quality furniture at a good price.  If you can wait you can get furniture built at a reasonable cost, you need to find an "ebanistería".

Also you can find second-hand furniture shops, this one is across the street from the Biblioteca Departamental on Avenida Roosevelt, Calle 5 24A-91, in this picture here:

In Cali there is an area of town where dozens of furniture stores line the streets, one next to the other.  When I lived in Cali with my wife she took me there and we walked around and looked at the options and I picked out my favorites for bedroom and living room furniture.  It was nothing fancy, but it was clean, new, and solid at a reasonable price.  We bought our appliances, TVs, mattress, etc. at a place like Carrefour or Exito as the previous poster mentioned.

Where you depends on whether you want used or new.

I recommend used.

Well I'm originally from Cali but grew up in Usa
Exito is excellent store they have some Sales in refrigerators till Monday.
I know course my sister in Cali sed they had to buy a new fridge you can check other stuff too

Hi I'm Louis originally from Cali living in Houston.
Exito is a very good store they have a refrigerator sale now.
And you can look for other stuff as well

I always liked Alcosto. Exito is good, the K Mart of Colombia. Alcosto has better quality at a fair price.
