What is a Pop-up shop?
A pop-up shop is a temporary store that opens in an empty retail space.
The History of The Pop-Up Project:
Twenty pop-up shops have been hosted by DECA since October 2012. The work of over 100 community volunteers, property owners and entrepreneurs is revitalizing the main commercial strip of on Danforth East. We match entrepreneurs & artists and their business plans, to landlords with vacant storefronts. The community has come out in droves to support this innovative initiative, from real estate agents, to community members, to landlords. Listen/watch this presentation to find out more.
