A ‘best-selling’ computer company is coming to Southampton next month – but only for two days.

Raspberry Pi is setting up shop in Westquay’s pop-up store on the third level.

From April 7 to April 8 visitors can browse low-cost, high-quality computers and accessories, and receive advice and expertise from staff.

Oli Wilkin, head of retail, said: “We are delighted to bring our pop-up store experience to Southampton.

“We always enjoy meeting our fans and giving people the opportunity to get hands-on with Raspberry Pi.

“Since we launched our first bricks-and-mortar store in Cambridge over four years ago, we have sold well over 19,000 computers, held nearly two hundred free workshops, and helped thousands of people to get started with our amazing low-cost, credit card-sized computer.

“We hope that lots of people will come down and see us on April 7 and 8.”
