Pop-up opportunity in Rochdale's Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre

Date published: 09 April 2019

A new opportunity for traders is now available in The Wheatsheaf Shopping Centre in the form of a pop-up shop.

The pop-up space occupies a central location within the shopping centre, adjacent to Fulton Foods and near Fizz Bomb, perfect for attracting customers.

The Rochdale Business Improvement District (BID) is looking for independent traders, local artisans and producers (established businesses, successful online retailers or testing the market), who would like a trading opportunity for a week at a time in Rochdale Town Centre.

The unit measures some 370sqft and it is open-fronted with a shutter.  Wall hangings, shelving and island units to suit your business can all be accomodated. It includes everything you need to trade, including power and lighting.

Paul Ambrose, Rochdale BID Manager, said: “The BID is delighted to be offering this pop-up opportunity in Rochdale town centre and we welcome enquiries from businesses who sell all types of products, including food, drink, clothing, toys, art, crafts, home furnishings or anything else you think would sell here in our vibrant town centre.

“The pop-up retail concept trend continues to grow because this new form of experience is a great way for business to experiment and shape their products. In many ways they are an ideal entry point for a young, small business – long-term commitment free, cheap and cheerful while retaining an exclusive feel for consumers.

“The benefit of running a pop-up is that you are only committing to the time you want to be there and hopefully businesses can use this pop-up opportunity as a stepping stone to a permanent shop within Rochdale town centre.”
