Disappointed with Maplin Electronics in UK

by JonahS on Mon Feb 06, 2012 6:17 am

Maplin is my local shop for picking up kit. I was excited to see them stock Arduinos and wanted to know if Adafruit products will be there soon. I Googled and read a forum post on Maplin's company site.

All the comments supporting Adafruit are gone! :evil: Adafruit can you shed any light on this? When will I be able to get a Mintyboost at Maplin?? :D

From what I heard from someone who used to sell to Maplin, they probably wanted too much margin and 3+ month payment terms
