The Auburn Mall announced today the start of its search for Auburn’s Next Great Pop-Up Shop. Open to businesses of all types, the search will grant one lucky winner a pop-up space in the Auburn Mall this holiday season.
The search is a partnership with the American Dream Project, an initiative that connects entrepreneurs with brick and mortar spaces by working with property owners to facilitate the vision of new and expanding American businesses. Finalists will be chosen by the Auburn Mall and the winner will be voted on by the community.
“We are very excited to be hosting the inaugural search for Auburn’s Next Great Pop-Up Shop. There are so many talented entrepreneurs in the Auburn area and this is a one-of-a-kind opportunity for someone to design and run their own store. Having a storefront during the busiest time in retail will provide the winner with immeasurable exposure to the Auburn community and being able to support someone with a passion for their business is what drew us to this project," said Coles Doyle, marketing director for Hull Property Group. “Whether you are a new business or an existing business looking to try something different, there is so much potential for this space to be something truly exceptional.”
The winner will be awarded a retail space in the Auburn Mall for six weeks during the holiday season as well as a cash prize to be used toward the design and build-out of their dream pop-up space. Rent and utilities will be covered by the Auburn Mall. For more details about the space and to apply, visit www.dreambighere.com/auburn.
The application deadline is Friday, September 13. Finalists will be selected by the Auburn Mall and the winner will be voted on by the community. The winner will be announced on October 1 and the new pop-up shop will be open from November 25 through January 7.
