Tandy

Not that I thought much of them for various reasons but I thought they went bust?
I stumbled on this a couple of days ago and while they don't list any stores, it seems that Tandy is actually still alive!
http://www.tandyonline.co.uk/
Not a great deal on the site (typical Tandy limited selection) but it seems that they are still alive and attempting to sell their limited stock.

Re: Tandy

Ah, that would explain it then. In that case I don't think I'll bother buying anything.. don't wanna support carphone warehouse.. although I'm tempted by the fact that they sell the pi and RS have a delay of 4 weeks..

If you want a pi,  Cool Components is a good place to go.  (http://www.coolcomponents.co.uk/catalog/raspberry-c-23_142.htmll)

Re: Tandy

Yeah but at Tandy its £29.99 inc vat + £1 P&P.
At Cool components it's £26.99 + vat (£32.3Cool + P&P. Bit steep that although it looks like a good site.

Re: Tandy

Brands survive online after the stores close. Woolworth, Littlewoods and Tchibo are a few that spring to mind.
