The Raspberry Pi Store in Cambridge celebrates its third anniversary today and to mark the occasion, Raspberry Pi is keen to replicate the experience with pop-up stores in various cities across the UK on dates later this year. He tried the pop-up format last year in Oxford Street, London, and now wants to replicate it in Edinburgh, London and Newcastle (the venue is technically in Gateshead, just outside Newcastle).
By visiting pop-up stores, Raspberry Pi promises you a proper Cambridge store experience. You will be able to handle and taste products at workstations and discuss items with staff members before deciding whether to make purchases. Items you’ll find include the Raspberry Pi 4, Raspberry Pi 400, and more. There will also be accessories and peripherals on sale as well as clothing, books and other merchandise.
The dates and locations for the pop-up stores are as follows:
Metropolitan Centre, Newcastle (Gateshead)
- Saturday 28 and Sunday 29 May
St James Quarter, Edinburgh
- Friday July 29 and Saturday July 30
Oxford Street, London
- Friday 29 and Saturday 30 October
Pop-up stores will be ideal for people who are familiar with Raspberry Pi and have thought about buying the company’s computers but never committed. The stores will give you the chance to get hands-on experience with the devices before you make a purchase. If you’re planning on going on the second day of the store, Raspberry Pi said they’ll bring enough of each product so that no items are already sold out by the time you arrive.
