This might help: The MagPi 57 stock locations - https://www.google.com/maps/d/viewer?mi ... sp=sharing

I wish I'd known about it yesterday.

I spent most of the day looking for a copy but everywhere was unfortunately sold out. Are there any plans to sell the voice hat in the future ?

Thanks Nikki x

My advice is to think of less "geeky" locations.
For example, I went to two stores in Leicester, both stocked it but had sold out (Sainsburys and WH Smith).

I went to a small town further afield (Ashby) which I wouldn't suggest has much call for tinkering with little computers, the hobbies there seem to be getting drunk and fighting. Regardless, Tesco Extra had three copies on the shelf - so I bought two!

Ashby sounds remarkably like Ascot, other than we also have horse racing.
But, unlike Ashby-de-la-Zouch-beside-the-Sea, none of the nearby Tescos had it. The small one in the high street, Martin's Heron, Warfield, The Meadows, ... - zilch. Irritating.

Amazingly, today (22/05/17) I sighted (and didn't buy) a copy of Magpi 57 on the magazine rack at Tesco's, Roborough, Plymouth!

Ashby de la Zouch has a large Schneider office building, I've been there for training courses, plenty of geeks there.

OK, then they have geeks that missed out on the magazine ;)

Probably accelerating as quickly as possible away from Ashby de la Zouch.

Wait, are you telling me that there are shops in Ashby?
I just drive around it as a shortcut to Darby!
