Fantastic! Can’t wait to make a visit ?

Nice!

That POS is running a PI right?

Avatar

Why do you call it POS?

Avatar

Point of Sale, the system running the cash register.

Avatar

POS = Point Of Sale terminal. Not what you were thinking it stood for… ;)

The business processing acronym is the one that first came to my mind as well, rather than the other.

Well! It is a difficult time to be PC.

Congratulations! Also, those red and white keyboards and mice look gorgeous, will they be available to buy online?

Avatar

Those red and white keyboards are indeed gorgeous. I do hope they go on sale!

Can’t wait to visit it! Need to find an excuse to take a trip to Cambridge…

Avatar

A few weeks ago I was just looking for a store selling Raspberry Pi in Cambridge! Wonderful news!

Avatar

Fantabulous!

Cool

That is great news.

Avatar

This is absolutely brilliant. Well done!

Avatar

Nice. But the MPEG keys I’ve ordered and paid online two weeks ago didn’t arrive yet….

Please check your spam folder. If you email us at the address you’ve been given, we’ll also check that the email address you provided in the first place was the correct one (a surprising number of customers mistype their addresses!)

A great substitute for what we used to go to Radio Shack for!

Avatar

Wow, excellent even though I’m not living in the UK, but I liked the store.

Avatar

Sound Great. Hope to see more Rs.PI stores all around the world

Avatar

This is great news. I hope it’s a huge success and you can open more stores around the country.

Avatar

This is great news – nothing like a ‘hands on ‘ geek shopping experience

Avatar

Great, pity very far from where I live. Are you going to have Pi Genius Bar similar to a well known brand’s stores?
:-)

On a more serious note, looks great, well done!

Avatar

No that is a computer shop I’ll happily walk into. And spend LOADS!

Avatar

I really hope you start selling those keyboards and mice to the public at large soon, they look great!

Avatar

+1!

The keyboards look great! Can those “spakkity-clackities” (keyboards) be bought online as well?

Avatar

The keyboards with matching mice are on sale now! They are already out of stock at a bunch of resellers, so you might want to get one soon…

I agree, those keyboards and mice look great, especially for a small class.
I hope they go on sale soon.

Avatar

I will be visiting on Sunday. Now, if I can just stay OUT of Ed’s Diner while I am in Grand Arcade I will be proud of myself.

Avatar

Now I want to go to England!

Avatar

Having just paid my first visit, I can say that this is a truly fab shop! Lots of nice demo stations to play with – I had a go at using Scratch to blink an LED and then did the same on another station but with Python.

The red and white keyboards are, indeed gorgeous and include a USB hub with three USB ports. They are on sale in the shop (£23, I think).

Plenty of other interesting stuff on sale including a nice “maker” section with soldering irons, stripboard, solderless breadboards, jumper wires etc. And lots of add-ons from Adafruit and Pimoroni plus all the books and magazines you could want.

Great fun – I’m going to have come back with my kids soon!

Avatar

Correction: keyboard is only £18!

I’m pleased to see this: Since the demise of the ‘Maplin’ high street electronics chain in the UK there hasn’t been anywhere that I can just spontaneously go into to buy a Pi: I do fear for the long term success of the store when it has such a narrow remit – Maplin sold a lot more than just a fair range of Pis and accessories and still weren’t able to keep going. I wish you the best of luck, though, and hopefully we’ll eventually see one of these in every major city.

Avatar

Maplins was full of stuff you could buy online loads cheaper. It was staffed by people with very little product knowledge. There really was no reason to go in there unless you were desperate. This is entirely different.

Avatar

Our favorite programs from British TV are Midsomer Murders, Shetland, and Vera. Now that there is a Raspberry Pi Store in Cambridge, we have a reason to book a trip this summer. Can you recommend an agent?

Please let me know if a store might be planned in the Dallas, Texas, USA area!

Congratulations!

Avatar

Great shop. Any chance you could open one in Leeds or Bradford.
I have had the pi 3b+ for bit now and looking to do with it games/cctv/etc.
Youtube videos are great but not the same as a face to face chat. With maplin not on high street anymore this would be a big help.

Avatar

I recommend you go to a local ‘Raspberry Jam’ where you will find lots of people eager to chat and give advice. There are a number in your part of the world. Alternatively, seek out a makerspace.

Better than Apple Store!

True Dat!

Woo hoo! Can’t wait to visit – looks good!
