According to the Store Front’s Pop-Up Shop Post by Tristan Pollock, “Pop-Up shops are taking over the retail world and rethinking traditional brick-and-mortars and big box stores…Their primary use is to “sell products, launch new products, generate awareness and test ideas”.
Let us tell you a little bit about PUG. PUG’s will be popping up in the shop each month on a Saturday. PUG’s will only be announced on our Facebook page the evening before, all you have to do is look for our new PUG logo. Each gallery will showcase specialty items offered in limited quantities; they could be Indie yarns, notions, accessories, gifts and whatever else catches our fancy. Since most of these items are offered to us as ‘one-timers’, some may sell out in 24 hours, some in 24 days but once the items are gone, we’re sorry you missed out. Most will be exclusives, vendor test releases, one-of-a-kinds, some knitting related, some craft related and some unexpected.
Will a PUG feature more than one vendor on more than one Saturday per month? Sometimes yes, but the secret is, you will never know what surprise awaits you unless you come to the shop. All of us at In The Loop have worked hard to research and coordinate with each vendor to bring you this wondrous experience of thinking outside the box.
