As another successful Pop Up Shop ends, it would appear not everyone is familiar with Pop Up’s.
A Pop Up Shop is a short-term, temporary retail event that ‘pops up’ one day and disappears the next.
They are popular around the globe and also include Pop Up restaurants. Famous brands like Nike, Gucci & Samsung have operated Pop Up Shops at various locations including New York City. They are there for a limited time only.
After the devastating earthquakes in Christchurch in 2011, the Re Start container mall in Cashel Street was a ‘Pop Up Mall’. This became home for many of the CBD’s retailers while the city was rebuilt.
After we have renovated a property in Marlborough, we have a Pop Up Shop in the house. This allows people to purchase the furnishings we have used to dress the property. We also talk homewares, renovations & styling. Some people come to shop, some to chat and some to get ideas for their next project. It’s a lot of fun. As with everything, things evolve and our latest Pop Up has included free tastings of The Caker and Storm & India, free samples (kindly supplied by Storm & India) and discount vouchers for our website. Not forgetting a major furniture giveaway of a beautiful round rattan chair by Hubsch!
Everyone always asks, “when is the next one”?
2017 we had 3 Pop Up’s, 2018 we have had 1. As for 2019 – who knows? You need to keep an eye out on our Instagram & Facebook pages for details of upcoming Pop Up Shops.
We pop up one day and are gone the next!
See you at the next one…. xxx
