What is a Pop-Up Shop?
Pop-up shops are temporary stores that “pop up” in a specifc neighbourhood for anywhere from a few days to a few months, filling vacant storefronts and benefitting all parties involved: landlords, business owners and the community
as a whole.
Landlords make their otherwise empty space available to business owners for a certain period of time, and the result is win-win.
The business owner gets the opportunity to try out the space and the neighbourhood to see if the location is a good fit to start something more permanent and the landlord gets their space cleaned, painted and staged for the community and potential renters to consider it for future use.
The community, meanwhile, benefits by having a formerly empty space filled by a provider of goods or services, which creates foot traffic and a busier, more thriving neighbourhood.
