As some of you may have already noticed, SparkFun has been rolling out items in retail packaging for a while now. Initially, this was for our distributors who wanted to have some of our items nicely packaged on their shelves. For the past several months, however, we have been working with MicroCenter to establish a presence in their retail stores.
Now, it has really happened. We currently have stock in every MicroCenter store in the country (and on their website). That is, as of right now, 23 stores (with a 24th on the way). In most stores you can find our stock in the DIY section by the books (though in the Denver store we are mysteriously placed by the video games).
We are really excited to be able to have a retail offering on shelves at stores around the country. We want to make it as easy as possible to make your project ideas become reality, and when you discover you need a component you can head to MicroCenter and (hopefully) get what you need. Our retail offerings are quickly expanding at this point and we will continue to add more and more retail items as often as we can!
Reminder: We have our Intro to LilyPad Class tonight in our classroom at SparkFun Electronics starting at 6pm. We still have seats open and would love to see you there if you are in the area.
