Pop-up Sleaford

Pop-up Sleaford is a shared-shop run by young entrepreneurs and start-ups to get their first experience of trading in a retail shop. Jenny Sherlock, owner of the unit which was formerly "Soft options" (3-4 Market Place, Sleaford), approached us during Sleaford's Teenage Market at Halloween. She was so impressed with the quality and vibrancy of the stalls present that she invited us to take on the empty shop from November 2015 to February 2016.

The shop was located alongside the market place car park in central Sleaford, opposite the main entrance to St Deny's church.

Temporary Shop

Thanks to her generosity, Pop-Up Sleaford was brought to life as a Christmas/Gift Shop. It was an opportunity for young entrepreneurs and start-up retailers to share a shop and gain real-world skills in a retail environment. The traders share the staffing of the shop on a rota basis, and the offering was focused on Christmas items, unique gifts and handmade crafts.

If you want to know more about the concept, which we hope will be of interest to other local landlords with vacant property, check out our dedicated Pop-up Sleaford Facebook page.

Pop-up Sleaford Now Closed!

The grand opening of Pop-Up Sleaford took place at 10am on Saturday 7th November at the shop, 3-4 Market Place. Even if you missed the launch we hope you made it along, had a look round, support our traders and bought something.

Further news about Pop-up Sleaford will be added in future.
