Welcome to Pop Up intu Broadmarsh!
Budding retailers and local independent businesses are setting up shop at intu Broadmarsh, selling hand crafted, locally sourced, locally themed products.
Today, Pop Up intu Broadmarsh is home to the following independent retailers:
The story of Pop Up intu Broadmarsh starts with a collaboration between intu Broadmarsh, Inspiring Retail and FHP, who worked together to run a competition to give away two empty shops to two local independent retailers for a year.
Councillor Nick McDonald, portfolio holder for jobs and growth at the city council said: “This is a truly unique and exciting collaboration between the city and private sector partners who are all passionate about helping new businesses.
“The city centre has become a much more vibrant place in the past 12 months, which is fantastic but means that there are less affordable retail spaces available to provide independent businesses with trading opportunities.”
intu’s regional centre director Janine Bone said: “We are pleased to have welcomed two new businesses to intu Broadmarsh's upper mall through the Inspiring Retail competition, and look forward to welcoming more local traders throughout the year. We hope these businesses will move on to long-term success”.
