Almost There!

Happy Monday everyone! With a lot of hard work these past few days, we are edging closer to being able open our showroom once again. Our display units for the showroom are arriving on Tuesday (finally!) so we will be busy getting everything assembled and displayed. With that, the entire physical move will be complete and we will theoretically be ready to open the doors. The bad news is: it looks like we may have to delay our opening day as we are waiting on a few bits of paperwork to get wrapped up with the city. We are aiming for to Saturday Oct. 22nd – keep an eye on our website or social media as we will update that information mid week.

In other news, we took a large step forwards in telecommunications technology and entered the 19th century by finally getting operational telephone lines. This did take quite a lot longer than we anticipated so we do apologize for any inconvenience! Our new number is listed on the contact page so be sure to update your speed dial – if that is still a thing?

Thanksgiving Weekend

Just a quick reminder that all orders placed after 4:00PM Friday, October 7th will ship the following Tuesday, October 11th due to Thanksgiving Holiday in Canada. Our showroom is still closed but getting closer to being ready. Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!

No More McGarrigle

Today, Thursday, September 29th is our LAST DAY at Unit G-1, 2231 McGarrigle Road. Our showroom looks empty with very green walls. If you still need anything for your project, we will still be here until 5:00PM. As we have mentioned, our new building construction is running a little behind schedule, so our showroom will be closed for a few weeks while we get everything organized in the new place. (As you can see in the photo, doors would be nice!)

During this time local customers may place an order through the website and select the “Local Pickup” shipping option – which is free or charge. We apologize for any inconvenience! Orders placed for local pickup will receive an email to arrange a pickup time with one of our staff outside at the 2052 Boxwood Road location. All orders shipping out will move as per normal, we do not expect any delays. Please do not hesitate to email Sales if you have any questions concerning how your order will be handled.

During the move our telephone system will be down and, unfortunately, due to the unique way our telecom operators work in this region, we are unable to keep our current telephone number. The new number will made available as soon as it is up and operational. In the mean time we ask that if you are trying to get in touch with us, you do so by email or social media – these will continue to operate uninterrupted.

Also, don’t forgot that tomorrow, Friday, September 30th is our last day for our Moving Sale. Take advantage of the free shipping (Standard shipping within Canada) on all orders over $150.00 before applicable taxes.

Just Arrived Today

The newest product released by the Raspberry Pi Foundation just showed up today – and Yes, we do have a few in stock. The Official Raspberry Pi Starter kit is billed as a premium Raspberry Pi Starter Kit – and they are not kidding around. All you need to get this “mini computer in a box” up and running is some electricity and a monitor – that’s it! Everything else is included in this extremely well packaged kit.

It is worth noting that the price point is definitely higher than most Raspberry Pi Starter Kits on the market but, once you factor in everything that it comes with, it is well worth it. The components are all of very high quality; The keyboard and mouse have a great feel and are definitely something worth having, the book is well written, and everything else just works. All in all, a great kit for someone who just wants to plug it all together with no messing about.

Are you interested in picking one up? We have had an extremely limited quantity on hand so jump on over to the product page to place the order. Please note: Due to the extremely low number available we will have to limit these to one unit per customer and they will not be eligible for our free shipping promotion.

1 Week Left – The Move

With just over 1 week until we move, you may notice that the showroom is starting to look a bit sparse. We apologize for the inconvenience but you will still be able to pick up all your items needed for any project! Thursday, September 29th will be our last day in our current space (Unit G-1, 2231 McGarrigle Road). There won’t be anything to view in the showroom that day but feel free to stop by to pick up anything from our website – we will still have inventory on hand. Friday, September 30th the showroom will be closed for cleaning as we say goodbye by 12pm (Noon).

As some of you may know, our new building at 2052 Boxwood Road has been delayed due to weather. Rainy days caused the finishing of the roof to pushed back a week, and unfortunately, a convertible office doesn’t make much sense in this rainy climate! That being said, we will continue to ship orders as per normal but our showroom will be unavailable for a couple weeks while things are finished up. Local pickup will also still be available, but only during select times. Please email sales@bc-robotics.com if you have any questions concerning local pickup.

Also, don’t forget: our Moving Sale runs until September 30th at midnight!
