Ishvari by Renu Modha

“We’ve had such a fantastic reception from shoppers at The Trafford Centre and we’re delighted to have introduced our brand to so many new customers. Our Rock Up and Pop Up kiosk perfectly showcases our colourful and unique designs which has definitely drawn customers to us. Having successfully completed our first Rock Up and Pop Up placement, we’re excited to move on to our next in one of London’s most iconic venues.”

Just Bee Honey

“Entering the physical retail market has been a breeze using the Rock Up and Pop Up service. The SpaceandPeople team has helped us throughout the set-up journey, working with us on graphics, merchandising and offering a staffing solution. The kiosk has given us the opportunity to interact and offer samples to customers, and gain valuable in-the-moment feedback, which our online business doesn’t do. We’re pleased with our results so far and are looking forward to expanding across the UK in the coming months.”

The team at SpaceandPeople has provided a comprehensive service and has guided us through all the steps required to open the kiosk, which we did within a short time period. This included help to develop the initial concept, branding and merchandising support”

  • How much will it cost?

    The cost to retail in a shopping centre varies depending on the retail set-up (whether you are using a Rock Up and Pop Up kiosk 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.

    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.
