What makes pop-up shops so pop-ular? Taking up residence in vacant retail spaces, find out what makes these temporary brand stores so enticing.
You may have noticed the expanding prevalence of retail pop-up stores. From high-end brands releasing exclusive collections to enterprising start-ups selling their wares, these short-term stores have been popping up everywhere. Often a lower-risk real estate investment, pop-up stores can serve as a way to incubate new ventures or incite hype around a limited release of highly coveted merch. Here are a few ideas on why pop-ups have such broad appeal and how Britten can help you create one of your own!
The greatest allure of pop-ups is their temporary nature. A limited offering creates a sense of urgency to attend and experience the short-lived retail space. Coupled with a finite inventory of coveted new collectibles and it’s easy to understand why retail pop-ups create quite a stir despite their modest square-footage.
Naturally churning out a lot of social press, capitalize on patrons posting with an interactive photo element. Large foam letters or elements by Britten are a fantastic addition that seamlessly complement branding standards and collection motifs—making them the perfect piece for a pop-up selfie.
Due to the highly transitive nature of pop-ups, brands can be intensely specific about who and where they want to target. Able to set up shop in nearly any major city with vacant retail space, a pop-up shop allows for a finely tuned campaign that targets a specific audience. Whether occupying a location in an already bustling retail boulevard or making a destination outpost from an eclectic venue, if you build it, they will come.
Mimic the glamor of iconic districts like 5th Ave or create an innovative vision of your own with Britten WoodWorks. An exacting fabricator trusted with luxury brand visions like Fendi, a Britten built pop-up interior is certain to impress and attract a target audience.
Pop-ups are typically short-term tenants, reducing some of the risk and investment costs of securing a retail location. Usually operating on an abbreviated leasing agreement, these temporary stores can occupy a location without the significant expense of long-term ownership.
An added benefit is that these temporary retail ventures can often slot into vacant storefronts and retail spaces, adding a rejuvenating dose of potential customers and life to empty retail stretches. Specializing in fully branded environments, a Britten large format print and graphics package can create the signage and stylized elements that transform a vacant space into a must-see pop-up retail space.
Along with the exclusive merchandise, much of the pop-up appeal is how it makes the customer feel. While a limited release of coveted apparel is an automatic draw, a finely curated atmosphere expresses the vision of the brand in a way that online shopping can’t replicate. Placing a premium on immersive atmosphere, a pop-up is a fully physical manifestation of the mood and motif of the collection, allowing customers to interact and connect with more than the product itself.
Pulling this presentation together requires a fabricator that understands pop-up brand activations, pop-up material production and has a proven attention for detail. From engaging giant foam letters to custom formed shelving and displays, Britten creates pop-ups for retail fashion that are sure to impress.
A pop-up thrives on its sense of exclusivity as well as its innovative interior design. Intended to promote the limited release of capsule collections or sought-after merchandise, these temporary stores also seek to create an experience for customers. Don’t leave the execution of a pop-up to chance—partner a proven fabricator. Experienced in every facet from large foam letters to full interior build outs, Britten makes retail environments and pop-up event spaces that pop!
