Edinburgh shoppers queue out the door for unusual technology pop-up

Huge queues were spotted running through the Edinburgh St James Quarter on Friday as technology lovers waited to get inside an unusual pop-up shop. 

The long lines stretched all the way out of the door at the shopping centre as cult computer brand Raspberry Pi opened a temporary shop for two days.

Although not well-known to everyone, the digital brand is hugely popular with those who know their stuff when it comes to IT, selling personal computers and other hardware.

Currently on a pop-up tour in the UK, the company has taken over the digitally connected pop-up space Sook in the St James Quarter, to show locals their new products.

Able to meet customers face to face and demonstrate their new tech, the idea seemed to be proving extremely popular in the capital as shoppers waited for some time to get inside. 

Oli Wilkin from Raspberry Pi commented: “Having used Sook a few times now, we’ve always found them to be very supportive of what we are looking to achieve from our pop-up stores. The process is incredibly versatile and easy for us to work with
