POPUP BIRMINGHAM TO OPEN AT BULLRING

A pop-up shop in Birmingham’s Bullring is set to give shoppers more than 80 new fashion firms to shop with through a pioneering initiative.

PopUp Birmingham opens on April 15 in the iconic centre on the Middle East Mall, will give shoppers a seven week opportunity to shop with up-and-coming independents in fashion and home-wares.

The news comes as research from the Local Data Company this week revealed independents are slowly re-gaining a foothold on the high street - with 44 independent shops opening every day in 2013, according to their figures.

The initiative is run by PopUp Britain, part of the Association of Town & City Management (ATCM).  Its aim is to nurture future independent talent and add diversity and sustainability to the British retail landscape.

The first 12 new brands will include:

P& Co  

Maison Privee  

Lorna Horton  

Jeetly  

Cheer Up Clothing  

Front Up Rugby  

Protected Species  

Tanya Elizabeth  

Duke of Delhi  

Skribbies  

Brit-Stitch  

Owner and manager of Bullring, Hammerson is working with PopUp Britain to help develop the city’s own independent retail brands.

PopUp Birmingham is sponsored by John Lewis and each individual will be offered expert visual merchandising help to each of the new retailers in store learn how to make their products appeal to shoppers.

The initiative has already launched the high street careers of more than 350 new British retailers through its outlets around the UK.
