Having your very own pop-up shop is great for a whole range of reasons. Not only does it give you a chance to test out the market for your goods in the physical space, as it’s temporary, it doesn’t come with the same amount of stress. You can try out all sorts of different locations and venues, as well as earning a little bit of extra money in the holiday seasons when people are more likely to go shopping.
When it comes to choosing a venue, there are a few things that you need to consider before you start viewing potential premises. It’s always best to sit down and make a list of things that you need in a venue, as well as things that you want to avoid.
Are you looking for a venue that is close to where you live? If this is your first pop-up event, testing it out on the locals is a great way to get started. You’ll also need to pick an area that gets a good footfall of traffic throughout the day in order to increase your chances of getting some sales. There’s no point in setting up shop in a quiet residential area.
How are customers getting to your shop? Is it all foot traffic? If so, are there good transport links available nearby? If you want to host a special event in your shop, you will need to ensure that it is easy for everyone to get there. Considering parking is also a good idea at this stage.
What type of items do you want to sell? What vision do you have for the space that they’re in? The style of the venue that you choose will reflect on you and your products, so you need to make sure that it matches in with your theme. There are spaces of all kinds available for pop-up hire, so take your time in searching until you find the one that feels right for you.
Choosing the perfect pop-up location takes careful thought and planning. Don’t just hire the first vacant space that you see – you might end up with somewhere that looks great at first but doesn’t provide you with the footfall that you need. There are lots of different pop-up venues for hire in London, so you really can go for any type of style you desire.
Having a pop-up shop that’s located in a shopping centre guarantees that there will be a certain number of people passing by that are there for one reason only – to do some shopping. These are generally slightly more expensive than others, but you may get a good deal if the shop is only going to be vacant for a short time.
Do you have an eclectic collection of items to sell? It so, then hiring a private apartment might be just the venue you need. If promoted well enough, people will still find their way to your store, and it can really stand out due to the uniqueness of the venue.
Have you spotted a vacant shop on your local high street? If so, then it’s the perfect opportunity for you to set-up a pop-up shop. Not only is it located in your local area, but high street stores get a good amount of traffic from people who won’t be able to resist seeing what you’re selling.
Galleries make excellent pop-up shops. Not only are they unique in their design, they are more readily available than vacant shops and can give your pop-up a cool and sophisticated feel. They are also very versatile as they are used to hosting a range of different events and activities throughout the year.
It’s easy to get excited about the opening of your shop, but there are still things that you won’t be able to do without. Making sure that you have a good working list before you open will help to ensure that the whole experience goes smoothly.
Do you have contents and liability insurance? If not, you’ll need some. In many cases it will be a condition of your lease for the pop-up, so you won’t be able to set up shop without it. Insurance will protect you and your products from any unforeseen circumstances.
2) Hire Staff
It’s tempting to think that you’ll be able to manage your pop-up by yourself, but if you want to be open for as many hours as possible then hiring some staff is a must. It’s always a good idea to have two people working during peak times, and it means that you can enjoy a day off once in a while.
3) Have a Launch Party
One of the best ways to let everyone know about the arrival of your pop-up is by having an opening party. This gives you something a little bit extra to promote, and you’re sure to bring in the crowds. Organising a little bit of bubbly and some exclusive money off on the night to entice people in.
4) Set Shop Policies
It might only be a temporary shop, but you’ll still need firm policies in place. Keep your opening hours the same and clearly advertise them. Make sure that all staff know and stick to your refund policy as well. Having all of this well documented will make running your store so much easier.
Opening a pop-up store isn’t something that you’re going to be able to do overnight. It takes a lot of hard work and a good level of research to ensure that you’re ready for all that it entails. However, with the right venue in a good location, you’ll soon discover the benefits that having a physical store can bring, even if it is for a short period of time.
The best events for pop-up venues in London tend to be product launches and short-term restaurants, exhibitions, and experiences. Pop-ups tend to be short and memorable, so if you’re looking to introduce a new product to the market or test a new restaurant idea, a pop-up venue will be perfect. Some large fashion brands will organise pop-up shops to try their products with a new audience, to make a splash in the press with a fun event, or even to sell last season’s clothes at a discount.
The most important part of finding the perfect venue hire for a pop-up event in London is whether you need footfall. If the success of your pop-up relies on people walking past and coming in, you’ll want to choose an area of London that has a lot of people (so Zone 1 is ideal, or high-streets in Zone 2+), and a specific venue that faces onto a busy street. If your event is ticketed or invite only you might want to choose a venue that is exactly opposite!
As pop-up events tend to be short-term hires, you will probably be likely be hiring a venue by the day or week, so make sure you factor that into your budget. Depending on the area of London that the venue is in, the size of the space and the amenities they provide the cost is likely to vary a lot, so make sure you ask your venue manager lots of questions about their facilities before you agree a price. The more detail you know in advance, the more likely you are to find the perfect venue!
If you’re planning to organise a pop-up event, the best preparation you can do is to go to some pop-ups and see what you like. Virtually every area of London hosts different kinds of pop-ups, from restaurants, to fashion, to charity events. It’s tempting to pick a central part of London and although the footfall is very high, if you’re organising a small event that will cater to local people, why not try the hub of a high residential area like Hackney or Shepherd’s Bush?
Depending on the style of pop-up you’d like to organise, you may need a very specific style of venue or you could be more flexible. If you’re providing catering and drinks, you’ll need a kitchen and bar area, and enough space for everyone to eat. Some restaurants, cafés and bars offer exclusive hires for pop-up events, and you’ll know you will have all the equipment you need. If you are organising a fashion pop-up or product launch, you might want to prioritise a venue with high footfall and large windows – so a high street shop or gallery would be perfect.
