    "do you think I can find a photo-shop like yours at bestbuy?"

    "do you think I can find at best buy this photo-shop you have?"

    "do you think I can find at bestbuy a photo-shop like the one you have?"

    The only usable one is the first.

    The others, while not actually grammatically wrong, are not good English. They read like poor translations or the uncertainty of a non-native writer.

    What do you mean by "photo-shop"? if you mean digital photograph editing software I would say something like this:



    "Do you think I can find photo-shop software like yours at Bestbuy?"
