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 as they are stylish and highly flexible. 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. However, 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 to provide support in obtaining the relevant documentation in order to start trading. Use the booking form above to book pop-up retail space at Metrocentre.
  • Who can be a retailer?
    Our pop-up retail service is tailored to our individual clients, which has included start-up businesses, established brands and online retailers. We also offer inline retailers the opportunity to expand their customer base 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?
    This is the quickest way to retail at a shopping centre since a large number of our kiosks and RMUs are already placed at high footfall spaces inside shopping centres across the UK. These kiosks can be customised with fittings and fixtures to suit your products. To use one of our kiosks, contact us through the booking form above to book pop-up retail space at Metrocentre.

    2. Method Statement
    3. Proof of Insurance
    4. Photographic ID

    The average cost of PLI is £118 a year, or £14.30 a month for a small business.
  • Are there any additional costs / business rates?
    Power usage is generally included in the rent, however, excessive requirements may result in an additional charge. Should access to water and drainage be required an additional charge is likely, you can discuss this with an Account Manager You may be liable for business rates depending on the rateable value of your space and the size of your business.
  • How much will it cost?
    The cost to retail in a shopping centre varies depending on the retail set-up, product line you are selling, and the mall space chosen. The cost varies if you are renting an RMU or using one of your own kiosks. One of our team will be able to advise on pricing when they know more about your business and requirements.
