Pop-up shops like the Winter Wonderland Experience are a growing national trend. But you may be thinking what exactly is a pop-up shop?  "A pop-up shop is any temporary space set up to do sales in a retail mode" according to an industry expert Ian Hutchinson.The pop-up shop industry is a recent emerging industry doing about "50 billion dollars" according to the American Marketing Association.  The growth of the pop-up industry is being driven by the exorbitant rents and overhead expenses associated with the traditional retail or brick and mortar store business. This industry characteristically experiences small 2% to 4% profit margins on average.

Most revenue for many retailers are made during popular shopping seasons like back-to-school and Christmas Holiday seasons. Pop-up shops afford even major brands like Fendi and Ikea a way to set up shop during peak selling seasons.  This is a more affordable way to do specialized or themed temporary shopping outlets. It helps retailers to avoid expenses incurred during slower shopping seasons.
With these driving factors in mind we can easily see how the Winter Wonderland Experience, masterminded by the B.E.S.T. Networking Group, is not only a fun event but provides a real service for the community.  Community residents can shop locally patronizing emerging area businesses and enjoy an entertaining and cultural shopping experience.

Winter Wonderland Experience attendees also can participate and watch enlivening events taking place at the pop-up shop venue like its first "Kids Dance Competition."  Ms. Duke chimes in with elated assurance "this will be a great competition to come out and watch area children dance their hearts out!"

Merchants can on the other hand:

  • connect with customers cultivating business rapport
  •  see and discern customer interests
  • test their new products
  • record a list of prospective customers to create an email or online database
  • build their brand awareness and of course...
  • sell their merchandise or market their services

Founder Marsha Duke, sums up the event as based on 3 essential goals: 1. showcase vendors talents and products to new customers; 2. Expand their clientele; and 3. take advantage of the peak Christmas Holiday shopping season to bring local shoppers and business people together in a low cost and positive fun experience.

Marsha Duke further reveals "at B.E.S.T we use this time to create a successful platform for them to maximize the opportunities the season brings for the most exposure and to gain a vast amount of new customers and clientele."

The Winter Wonderland Experience is creating a sense of excitement and urgency to shop during the Holiday season.  Having access to creative merchants, not easily accessible during other times of the year, tends to create more of an urgent desire to buy now.

The B.E.S.T. Networking Group's Winter Wonderland Experience, is an excellent way to take advantage of the heightened Holiday Shopping season.  To attend or become a vendor at this promising pop-up shop event please Click Here
