18th November sees the launch of a brand new retail insurance product aimed at short term commercial tenants. Pop Up Insurance, underwritten by one of the UK’s largest insurance providers, has been developed by our team here at Popupspace.com, working with independent insurance broker WB Baxter Limited.
We believe the exciting new facility is the first of its kind. Traditionally retail insurance has been available only on an annual policy basis, meaning tenants with shorter leases have been charged annual policy premiums. Pop Up Insurance is tailored to the needs of the pop up tenant market and offers unique advantages to anyone occupying business premises on short lease terms.
Premiums start at a very low level for the minimum one month period of cover, making prices far more competitive than the traditional annual retail insurance policies. Visit Popupspace.com to find out more and ask for a quote.
We were excited to learn that Planeshop’s “flexible retailing” shop has opened its doors at Glasgow Airport. US brand Vacant – the brains behind Planeshop – is something of a pop up pioneer and has for years been transforming empty spaces into temporary retail stores. The Glasgow Airport store will provide pop up space for a variety of temporary occupiers. Planeshop describes the concept:
“Planeshop is a permanent shop with a flexible concept. Brands take over Planeshop for a limited time, so there will always be something exciting to see.”
Sportswear brand K-Swiss is the first pop up occupier of Glasgow Airport’s Planeshop – travellers with a little time to kill before they fly can visit the store from mid-October.
British fashion brand Jaeger is about to open its Boutique by Jaeger pop-up shop in London. The new store of the 126-year-old company will feature 60s inspired mini skirts, zipped coats, knits, micro tuxes, dresses and shorts with a contemporary rock ‘n’ roll vibe.
The department store chain John Lewis will be opening pop-up shops at Vintage at Goodwood, a new festival celebrating fashion, music, film and art from the 1940s to the 1980s.
Eleven empty shops across the UK are being transformed into old fashioned stores as part of the BBC’s Turn Back Time series, which examines how our high streets have changed over the years. In each pop up store, a group of modern day shopkeepers and their families will live and work in a different era of British history.
