Innovative Moreton-in-Marsh pop up shop scheme Pop-up Moreton welcomes final set of businesses
THE final trio of businesses have set up shop as part of Moreton-in-Marsh’s innovative pop-up shop initiative.
Pop-up Moreton has been running since the start of February, with three small businesses at a time setting up in a vacant shop in Old Market Way shopping centre for two weeks at a time to get a taste of life in retail.
The final three businesses are working under an Arts and Crafts theme, with Sally Scotford from Cirencester – who runs Bears From Spares – offering unique teddy bears made from used children’s clothes.
Alderton artist Trudi Hayden will also be on hand with a selection of original paintings, prints and cards while Honeysuckle House, a collection of artists and crafters from Oxfordshire and Warwickshire, rounds out the trio selling a range of hand-made Easter decorations and gifts.
The trio will be on hand until Thursday March 28, when the scheme will come to close.
The scheme run by StartUp Britain has been helping new companies in London to success since last summer, but this is the first time it has ventured outside the capital.
Each tenant is charged only £100 for the entire two-week period, which covers wi-fi access, rent and insurance.
