Local people and small businesses are to get the chance to run their own shop in Wallingford. South Oxfordshire District Council is working with Flashop UK to bring a pop-up shop initiative to the centre of Wallingford between April and October 2015.
The pop-up shop will provide people with an opportunity to take a short term commercial lease which will give them a taste of running a town centre shop. It will be a great chance to trial ideas and products to a new audience while helping to attract more people to visit their local high street.
It is hoped that this project will help start-up retail businesses, people who are presently retailing from home and would like to try running a shop, and existing shop keepers who would like to try Wallingford out as a possible location for their business.
Anyone interested in taking a pop-up shop in Wallingford should contact Iain Nicholson on Iain@prbi.co.uk or 07930 453883.
