What is flash retail ....
Whether you hear temporary retail, flash retailing, pop-up store, or pop-up shop, it is all one and the same. Pop-up shops are taking over the retail world and rethinking traditional store strategy.
Sighted as early as the 1990s in large urban cities such as Tokyo, Los Angeles and New York City, pop-up shops and pop-up retail are temporary retail spaces that sell merchandise of any kind. We are proud to be the innovators of Pop up retails in UK and the concept has evolved since our first Pop up shop in 1998.
Just about every consumer product has been sold via a pop-up shop at one point in time. From art to fashion to tech gadgets and food, pop-ups are exciting because they create short-term stores that are just about as creative as they are engaging.
Flash Retail is just about taking retail space on high foot -all areas and creating a pop-up shop with our partner companies.
Term. Typically 1 week to 5 years
Location. High foot traffic areas such as city centres, malls, and busy streets.
Use. Sell products, presence during holidays or events, launch new products, generate awareness, move inventory, test idea or location, increase ‘cool’ factor.
Landlords are benefitted by the temporary occupation of their property enabling them to market their property with more time frames. They also do not have to pay to secure their retail assets and may be able to pass on their business rates liability which means better cash flow.
Retailers can collaborate with us and open in more locations for a short period of time at a flexible term.
Online Stores can have a larger presence and are able to offer click and collect without committing to the long leases.
The procedure is quite simple
The landlord gives us a temporary Licence to occupy on a weekly rent basis with a notice period of 2 weeks and then Flash Retail Ltd sets up a pop-up shop in collaboration with various retailers, wholesalers and importers. We have all the licence formats to hand and the whole process can be managed within days.
Landlord & Agents
Fill up your temporary space: The pop-up retail format allows you to fill up void periods in your tenancy. You may have a property vacant because you are still looking for the best rental, negotiating lease terms, awaiting building works/enhancement or simply finding a tenant. We can fill this void period for you and you may be generating extra income.
Say no to squatters: About 95% of all high footfall shops will be squatted if left empty, which can lead to a heavy bill to get then evicted
Business rates: Your empty property will make you liable for business rates, by letting to pop up retailers, the liability is passed to the occupier.
