The upcoming initiative providing local independents with the opportunity to open a pop up shop in Eldon Square this Christmas
An exciting new pop up opportunity is emerging in Newcastle City Centre. The Eldon Square Pop Up Shop, will be located in Eldon Square Shopping Centre and aims to become a platform for emerging independent businesses to test the high street for as little as one week.
Offering over 1.35 million square feet of retail space, Eldon Square is a thriving shopping centre with a range of established and independent occupiers. The new pop up shop, opening in November 2022 on Eldon Way, will provide growing retailers with the opportunity to build a physical customer base and create brand awareness. The initiative also hopes to promote the excitement of shopping locally with brands born in Newcastle and beyond.
The initiative has been designed with independent businesses in mind and is available to rent at a simple all inclusive price that covers rent, utilities, business rates, service charge and social media promotion. The concept focuses on making joining the high street as simple as possible.
Asset Manager, Chloe Prince from APAM, commented: “The Pop Up Shop is a great opportunity for new and local retailers to trial a fantastic centre. We are looking forward to seeing new amenities in the centre which will further widen the consumer space and continue to provide a diverse and exciting offering at Eldon Square.”
Naomi Osborne acting Marketing Manager at Eldon Square added: “We’re delighted to welcome The Eldon Square Pop Up Shop to Eldon Way this November. We are always looking for new ways to ensure that Eldon Square is a place for retailers at all stages of their journeys and the Pop Up Shop, in partnership with Barker Proudlove, is something a little bit different. Shoppers will have the chance to experience something that they’ve not seen in the centre before and gain exposure to an array of exciting, growing retailers, many from the local area”.
Retail property consultants Barker Proudlove are ecstatic to be adding Newcastle to their range of pop up shop locations. Jessica Swain, from Barker Proudlove and Contemporary by Barker Proudlove, who specialises in creating these unique opportunities, said “We are always so proud to launch a new pop up shop location and this one is no different. To be able to offer an opportunity to businesses across Newcastle is incredibly exciting. We hope a huge range of businesses will be in touch to discuss popping up in the iconic Eldon Square Shopping Centre! If there is a perfect time and location to test the high street this really is it.”
