How much will it cost?

The cost to retail in a shopping centre varies depending on the retail set-up (whether you are renting an RMU or have your own kiosk). The other factors that influence the cost are

  • Staffing requirements
  • Point Of Sale system
  • Product line
  • The popularity of the venue
  • Mall space.

One of our team will be able to advise on pricing when they know more about your business.

What are the benefits of using your kiosks?

Using one of our kiosks is the quickest way to retail.  We work closely with the management of venues to create high footfall sites suitable for retail activity. Due to this relationship, we understand what venues are looking for and what kind of kiosks would suit their designated spaces.

Our highly experienced Operations Team can install a kiosk into your selected venue. With a short turnaround time, they can customise your kiosk to suit your retail needs. They will also remove the kiosk at the end of your retail lease.

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

Our kiosks provide you with a platform to meet face-to-face with prospective customers. This 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.

Do I have to use your full service or can I select specific elements such mall space booking?

Pop Retail offers a flexible service for you to choose the elements you require. We have in-house specialists to book mall space, install kiosks, provide merchandising support and help with the relevant paperwork you require to retail within a UK shopping centre.

We also offer a staffing service to find the right people for you. In addition we can install a point of sale system for your kiosk so all you have to do is arrange for delivery of your products to the venue before your trading period begins.

What insurances and documentation do we require?

Generally, £5m public liability insurance is required. However, certain venues or events may require £10m. We require the following documents:

  1. Risk assessment,
  2. Method statement,
  3. Proof of insurance,
  4. Photographic ID,
  5. Proof of address and
  6. Right to work in the UK evidence.

Please contact us if you need help with any of these. 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. If this is applicable, you can discuss this with your Account Manager.
