Over the next few months the Chester pop up will be welcoming a string of small businesses to the high street.
The line-up includes local businesses Modern Art Chester, Dawn Woodcock Jones, collaborating with Sam Bull and Plant Face.
‘Modern Art Chester’ will be the first local business popping up in the city centre location. Juliet will be opening the doors on the 19th July for three weeks and will offer a range of contemporary artwork. Modern Art Chester focuses on helping artists with limited space to sell or exhibit their work and their offering can usually be found predominantly online.
Following Modern Art Chester on the 9th of August, ‘Dawn Woodcock Jones’ and ‘by Sam Bull’ will be collaborating in the space. Collectively, the artists aim to fill their pop up shop with an array of stationery items and gifts ranging from tea towels to tote bags, all designed in house using fun patterns. This will be the perfect shop to find unique gifts and treats and we are so excited to welcome these two businesses.
Moving swiftly on, Plant Face is back in the building! Plant face joined us in 2020 and after her successful endeavours in the pop up last year, she is making another appearance for four weeks in the pop up starting from August 30th. Bringing all the greenery with her, you can shop for plants and pots to kit out your home or garden.
Chris Nutter from Barker Proudlove and Contemporary by Barker Proudlove said, “We are so pleased to be able to bring new businesses to Chester. The next few pop up shop hosts will definitely provide something unique and we hope those visiting Chester will shop independently with us over the next few weeks.”
Kiera McLaughlin, also from Barker Proudlove and Contemporary by Barker Proudlove proudly added, “It’s so exciting to see the pop up shop flourish and I am thrilled to work with such a wide range of small businesses. The amount of interest in the pop up shop this year has been phenomenal and we hope the shoppers of Chester love popping by over the next few weeks.”
She also added “Giving small businesses this opportunity to have their products on the high street, competing with larger retailers such as Boots or Next is something so rewarding to be part of. Small businesses bring a uniqueness to the high street and it's great to see independents get on board with this opportunity. I think it is great to see there is still a strong demand for physical retail opportunities in Chester city centre and many are super keen to bring their sparkle to the high street.”
