Do you own an empty commercial property?

If you do own vacant commercial premises, a ‘pop-up shop’ could help revitalise them, support the local community and help you find a tenant faster.

Many landlords with empty commercial properties allow local start-ups, entrepreneurs and artists to use their space on a temporary basis. Landlords can benefit too.

Allowing temporary retail use of a commercial property can make the premises more secure, lead to a creative rejuvenation of the space and increase the likelihood of your finding a permanent commercial tenant.

We have recently used pop-up shops to bring vibrancy to two vacant council-owned properties, with local residents using empty shops to kick-start businesses.

Interested owners of empty commercial premises can work with Meanwhile Space, We Are Pop-Up and other organisations to connect with individuals and groups that are seeking temporary space.
