To celebrate the Raspberry Pi Store’s third birthday, we decided to pop up in three different cities around the UK. And for our first trip, we’re going big.
Metrocentre in Gateshead is Europe’s biggest shopping centre. And despite its being home to more than 300 different stores, we are definitely about to become the best one there. Albeit for a short time.
Why should I pop by?
The Raspberry Pi pop-up store will give people of all ages and abilities the chance to get hands-on with technology.
Whether you’re a parent whose children have started coding at school or you’re looking to do something cool with sensors and LEDs, come down and meet the team from Raspberry Pi. They will be able to tell you exactly what you need, and direct you to free resources to help you get started with whatever project you have in mind.
Where is it happening?
We are so excited to be popping up in the vast, sweeping halls of the ginormous Metrocentre.
When is it happening?
Saturday 28 May
10:00 – 18:00
Sunday 29 May
11:00 – 17:00
What can I buy?
We will have stock of Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W. Please be aware that we’re limiting these to one of these computers per person. Note that the limit is one of any, not one of each, so you won’t be able to purchase one Raspberry Pi 4 and also one Raspberry Pi Zero 2 W, just as you won’t be able to purchase one 2GB Raspberry Pi 4 and one 4GB Raspberry Pi 4 — you can only buy one of any of these computers. We’ve decided to do this to try to ensure that everyone who has made the trip to Metrocentre can pick up a Raspberry Pi.
We’ll also have stock of Raspberry Pi 400 and Raspberry Pi Pico, and there’s no restriction on these: fill yer boots! There will be plenty of other good stuff on sale too, from T-shirts to mugs, magazines, books, and accessories.
