Frequently Asked Questions

What is the process for pop-up retail?

Pop-up retailing is a contemporary and low risk way of trading in high footfall areas such as shopping centres.

  • Mobile kiosks or RMUs offer a great platform to get the best out of your business. They are stylish and highly flexible retailing option.
  • If you already have a kiosk or are looking to build one, we offer a range of mall space sizes and locations. We encourage you to speak to us before you start the kiosk design so we can advise on the venue’s design criteria.
  • If you are looking for a larger space, it is also possible to open up a pop-up shop in an inline unit. Please contact us for current opportunities.

We will liaise with you and the venue and provide support in obtaining the relevant documentation in order to start trading. Use the booking form above to book pop-up retail space at atria Watford.

Who can be a retailer?

Our pop-up retail service is tailored to our individual clients, which includes start-up businesses, established brands and online retailers. We also offer inline retailers the opportunity to expand their customer base. We do this by directing shoppers to their inline store, promoting seasonal product lines and/or attracting a different demographic than usual.

Are there benefits to using a centre kiosk/RMU?

Our integrated kiosk service will allow you to test new products and services in a low risk environment. The flexibility of our short-term leases can give you the confidence you need to get started with kiosk retailing!

Our mobile kiosks/RMUs allow you to meet face to face with prospective customers, which is particularly useful if you are an online business. Kiosks can help to increase brand awareness as well as drive consumer engagement. To use one of our kiosks, please contact us to book pop-up retail space at atria Watford Shopping Centre.
