An electrical store is a shop focused on selling different electrical supplies (cable, cable channels, electric sockets etc) and electrical devices (electric meters, junction boxes, fuse boxes etc). It has additionally been used to tag shops that mainly sell "white goods" (electrical appliances like washing machines, dryers, fridges). Apart from shop=electronics such shops do not sell consumer electronics.
