Thanks to Suzanne Reeveley, Mike Finn, Mel Wilson, Carol Frankland and scores of volunteers and we have now had 4 days of amazing trading in our new Pop up shop, where more than 40 local makers, bakers and service providers have set up for nearly a month in the David Holmes (old shoe shop) on Central Avenue . The reception has been so positive and excitement could be felt and heard wherever you went.
We are asking all Pup’s (Pop up Partners) to spend the profit they make during that month, back into the local economy, rather than supermarkets, chains and online so that the other local independent businesses too can benefit from this windfall. The kind gesture of FHP living should therefore be felt all over West Bridgford and is not just happening on Central Avenue.
The shop was opened by the Mayor on Thursday 21st November, it introduces you to loads of beautiful gifts, amazing services and for those who want to spoil themselves a pop up spa.
Although we are now full, over the next few weeks, I expect places to become available (when stock runs out and to keep the offer fresh and interesting) if you are a West bridgfordian, who has an independent business and wish to have space, just email Mikefinn@hotmail.com.
We don’t take commission, what you make is what you take. Please be aware though that we ask everyone to put the profits back in the local independent businesses around the town. Hope to see you in the shop.
