The Winter Garden Pop Up Shop

Giving a small and “awkward” unit a successful future

The Story so far...

Finding themselves with a small, vacant unit within the iconic Winter Garden Sheffield City Council took the decision to work with Common People to fill the unit with a rotating pop up shop programme.

The Winter Garden Pop Up Shop is a successful ongoing project led by Common People giving new enterprises the chance to test the Sheffield market. The shop has seen an array of businesses including florists, milliners, artists and jewellers many of whom have gone on to open up permanent retail space elsewhere.

Businesses take up the space for a one month period and are able to test their product in a high footfall area at minimum cost and risk to themselves. The Winter Garden benefits from returning customers eager to see who is in residence at the Pop Up Shop.
