Odd Pop-Ups

Offbeat, eccentric pop-up shops spark consumer interest

Implications - Pop-up retail has taken off over the last couple of years, with the majority of them fashion- or restaurant-based. Now, however, more pop-ups are taking on offbeat themes, including playgrounds, roller rinks and puppy eateries. As more businesses and organizations begin to recognize the advantages of pop-ups—low costs, flexibility and a chance to spread a message in key locations—more of these eccentric establishments are sure to pop up in diverse and disparate markets.
