Galerías Preciados, S.A. was a Spanish chain of department stores founded in 1943 by José "Pepín" Fernández Rodríguez. Named after the street on which it stood, Galerías Preciados was, along with El Corte Inglés, one of the economic motors of the retail industry in post-war Spain.

In 1995, the company went into receivership and was subsequently adjudicated to its main rival.[1]
