Pop-up shop will help new business

Budding entrepreneurs wanting to test out their new business ideas can get a taste of the real deal in Mansfield’s first pop-up shop due to open next month (April).

The innovative scheme has been introduced by Mansfield District Council and Mansfield BID, who are now asking for interested people to come forward to register their business for the pop-up shop.

The pop-up shop will be set up in an empty unit in the town centre Market Place (the former Christmas shop). Up to four new businesses, at one time, will be given one weeks experience running their own business.

The scheme is open to any type of retail business which is able to operate in a town centre retail space without the need for onsite large equipment or machinery.

Businesses will need to contribute a small cost toward utility bills.

l Anyone interested in testing their business in Mansfield’s new pop-up shop should contact Sarah Newton, Mansfield BID Manager, on 01623 635 675 or email sarah@mansfieldbid.com
