The Raspberry Pi Store in Cambridge, UK turns three today. And because we had to have a lockdown birthday last year, we wanted to do something extra-special to mark our third.
In our three short years, we’ve hosted 135 Raspberry Pi workshops (it would have been more without lockdown!) and we’ve sold more than 10,000 computers.
So what are the three surprises?
Seeing as so many of you loved visiting the pop-up store we hosted on Oxford Street in London last year (photos below), we have decided to triple the fun with three pop-ups throughout 2022: one for each year our flagship store has been open.
We listened to what you said, and will be venturing north to Newcastle first and then Edinburgh, before heading back to the capital’s most famous shopping street for the third and final event, because we had such a good time there before.
What can we buy at the pop-up stores?
Back in November 2021, we welcomed hundreds of you through the door of our first ever pop-up store. We sold hundreds of Raspberry Pi computers over the two days we were open, with Raspberry Pi Pico and Zero 2 W units selling out on the first day of trading. (Lesson learned: we’ll bring more with us next time.)
No matter which site you visit, you’ll get the proper Cambridge store experience. You’ll be able to handle and sample merchandise at workstations in store, and our knowledgeable staff will be there to help you learn, play, and shop.
We’ll be selling everything from our most powerful computers, Raspberry Pi 4 and Raspberry Pi 400, to our tiniest ones, along with everything in between. Tonnes of official accessories and peripherals like camera modules, power supplies and cases will also be on sale. Plus we’ll have some wearable merchandise so you can advertise that you’re team Raspberry Pi via the visual medium of fashion.
