New shop set to pop up on Bridge Street

First published in News

A NEW tenant is set to move into Andover’s popup shop in Bridge Street on Sunday.

Hot on the heels of last year’s quartet of pop-up shop successes, domestic appliance specialist cooking2cooling is coming to town to share its wares.

Peter Sherwood-Clarke, of cooking2cooling, said: “During 2013 we took advantage of the council’s small business fairs held in Andover High Street to raise our profile with Andover shoppers.

“This proved a great success, but we were keen to take it further and explore how we could have a high street presence without taking too many business risks.”

Test Valley Borough Council leader Ian Carr said: “The council’s efforts and partnership working with potential pop-up shop occupiers, Stratfords Commercials the letting agent, and Prosigns UK for signage, have meant that we can continue to provide a valuable opportunity for small, local businesses to test the water in a town centre environment whilst mitigating their risks.

“Each business occupies the pop-up shop for a threeweek period, while the unit continues to be marketed for permanent use.

“This makes practical use of empty premises.”

cooking2cooling will be at the pop-up shop at Bridge Street until Saturday, 15 March, and negotiations are currently under way for a follow- on occupier later in March.
