Atlanta Pop-Up Shops Grand Opening This Weekend

Atlanta’s pop-up shops invite new businesses to our city!

This weekend a number of pop-up shops are scheduled to open along the Auburn Avenue and Edgewood Avenue corridor.  What exactly is a pop-up shop you might ask?  The pop-up retail style is a California based project that invites small retail boutiques and restaurants to open their businesses in districts that may have been left vacant for many years.  The idea is to offer these businesses low cost and or short term leases in order to populate the district and then eventually attracting other businesses to follow suite.

For many years there have been upward of 30 vacant buildings in this particular area and this Saturday, June 7th 2014 a dozen or so pop-ups will open their doors giving this once desolate district a vibrant revival.  Between 4 p.m and 9 p.m there will be a launch party with tons of free giveaways, live music, food and drinks.  With Auburn and Edgewood intersection being only a short walk from Atlanta’s “NEW” Street car route, this is already shaping up to be a promising future for Atlanta’s continued growth all the while supporting small businesses in the area.
