How to do more business with ShopShare – for shops

Transform your shop and make big returns from small spaces with ShopShare from We Are Pop Up.

At We Are Pop Up, our mission is to help independent retail thrive by thinking differently about the possibilities of space. In talking to our users we realised that we could do more to help smaller brands that wanted to test concepts in the market without committing to rent an entire shop.

That’s why we’ve launched ShopShare. ShopShare enables brands, spaces and customers to join forces in a collaboration that is mutually beneficial and co-create the high street of the future.

So, what is ShopShare?

It’s an opportunity for you to rent out part of your shop, from a rail, a table, a shelf or a concession, or even the whole shop. Exactly as the name suggests – share your shop!

Why should I ShopShare?

For landlords and shop owners, ShopShare provides you with an additional revenue stream. You can turn your shop into a concession space or ‘micro-department store’ easily, with no upfront investment.

With ShopShare, retailers can also respond quickly to trends and changing tastes by offering consumers unique and exciting experiences in partnership with other brands.

“It injects a sense of excitement and change, which customers really react well to. We learn from every brand that is in store and it can be the start of a longer partnership”.

Glassworks in Shoreditch has had over 16 ShopShare bookings, bringing in £15,909 extra revenue in 9 months.

Sourcing brands is quick and easy through our open, flexible and fast system. A hassle-free experience, you won’t receive calls from agents – We Are Pop Up connects you directly to suitable brands seeking ShopShare space for their latest products, garments or ideas.

It also allows you to pool resources and extend reach by accessing tenant/partners’ customers. When McQueens florists ran a ShopShare pop up with Black Vanilla gelato, the motivation was clear according to Operations Manager Michi Kanatschnig:

“We have been embracing social media and are keen to develop our online presence further and saw a pop up collaboration as a very good way to engage in cross brand promotion.”
