We are the UK’s leading concession specialists
PopUpShops.net is a trading name of First Franchise – the UK’s leading concession specialists. Formed in 2004, we have assisted thousands of companies launch their brands into the UK’s premier retail venues. We work with all the garden centres in the UK and our through our retail partnerships we have helped develop garden centres into “local retail destinations of choice”.
In 2010 our team launched Yankee Candles pop-up shops into the garden centre market and it was an immediate success. Since then, we successfully brought countless other brands to retail venues across the country, including children’s clothing specialist, The Clothing Outlet, and brand leader, Virgin Experience Days.
The opportunity to manage these well-known brands, on their own branded fixtures, has encouraged other companies to embrace the revolutionary pop-up shop format and we now have an extensive range of retailers and brands benefitting from these retail solutions.
The idea is simple – retail brands know their bestselling lines and store owners know what their customers want. If store owners have space for a new type of product, we put them in contact with their ideal retail brand, who supply them with the merchandise as an unmanned pop up shop. The merchandise is then positioned within a defined area of the store, under simple licence for an agreed term.
A pop-up shop brings a whole host of benefits for everyone involved. For brands, it can be the ideal way for you to establish promotional areas or to launch new products limiting risk associated with long term rental space, while maximising potential profit. New start-up businesses and well-known brands use pop up shops to test their concept by directly reaching local consumers, and benefiting from an already existing loyal customer base.
For store owners, a pop-up shop will add ‘major brand’ interest to your stores, capturing the imagination of existing customers and dramatically increasing footfall by bringing in new customers. Pop-up shops are a low cost retail solution, which generate additional profit streams and adds a new dynamic to existing product lines.
We’re are always on the lookout for the next best thing in a fast paced retail environment; we have space available for your products to be promoted in front of the right consumers almost immediately.
