Pop-Up Stores Help Drive Retail Success
Pop-up store are not exactly new, however what is new and very profitable, are the world’s leading retailers taking the pop-up store, or flash store as some refer to them as, to a whole new level.
With pop-up retail shops being appearing for special events as well as seasonal pop up stores, they may be around in the same location for as little as 3 days to as long as 3 months.
Today’s Pop-Up Store Revolution
What is differentiating today’s pop-up stores is that every major retailer, including the online giants such as Amazon, Target are investing in them. Heck, even Facebook is utilizing pop-up stores. This of course is leading to more significant design advancements to the point that today’s pop-up store is a very sophisticated design that embraces your brand identity while providing sophisticated traffic flow management in a small mobile space that is highly tuned for the exact market, purpose, location and event being targeted.
Our unique pop-up store designs with modular features allow retailers to target each event and location perfectly with maximum impact including easy installation and take down. These mobile stores are perfect for temporary seasonal space, long weekend events, fairs, conventions, shows, festivals and a wide range of neighbourhood events.
Usually situated in high foot traffic locations and events, pop-up stores require expertise and design planning that manages traffic flow, engages customers, while attracting new customers.
