Hello, Raleigh-Durham maker community.
We made the difficult decision to close TechShop Raleigh-Durham effective Saturday, April 20, 2013.
Amazing people and projects came together over the past several years, and it was a joy to see skills developed and dreams come true. Unfortunately, this location in Raleigh-Durham did not allow us to generate the number of members and the level of activity we needed to support our talented staff and maintain the facilities.
Members have been contacted directly, and we are in the process of refunding members for unused or pre-paid memberships and classes. We are making every effort to contact people with unused gift vouchers or coupons. Gift voucher holders and RDU members who would like to gift their remaining membership or classes to friends or family near other TechShop locations should contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
We consider the RDU members and staff to be part of the TechShop family, and we would like nothing more than to have you continue the pursuit of your dreams at a future TechShop location near you. The greater Raleigh-Durham area remains an attractive area for TechShop, should the right combination of factors come together at a later time.
