@adafruit at the @thinkgeek #ThinkGeekIRL store in Herald Square – retail assessment team :)
The Adafruit retail assessment team lined up at 10:30am at the THINKGEEK grand opening in Times Square, NYC. Ladyada, Vance and John are researching retail store environments, turn out for events like this and more. We mostly wanted the pin and patch (photos below) 🙂
Officially opening on Friday, May 13th, 2016. Only a short walk from Times Square (or maybe a huge jump if the thought of Times Square brings out the Hulk in you).
Broadway & 33rd
New York, NY 10001
(In the lower level of the 33rd and Broadway Gamestop)
