For the past couple of months, Algoma Area Chamber Member 610 Fourth Street, located at 610 4th Street in Algoma, has been hosting a pop-up shop for Dewey Creek Design, an Algoma-based business that makes silver jewelry, beaded jewelry, fused and stained glass along with doing photography.
A “pop-up shop” is the temporary use of physical space to create a long-term, lasting impression with potential customers. This allows a business without physical retail space to partner with a business with empty space.
On Tuesday, October 24, 2017, Nora Roughen-Schmidt, Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce in Viroqua, WI, will present information on hosting pop-up shops in our communities, as well as success stories from pop-ups in Viroqua and around Wisconsin.
This is a perfect program if you have an idea for a business, but not the funds or if you have an idea for a downtown shop or service, but feel it’s too risky. On the flip side, if you own a potential space for a pop-up, come and learn about the Pop-Up Shop program, an economic development strategy for small towns.
When: Tuesday, October 24, 5:00 p.m.
Where: Moxie’s Supper Club
607 Church Ave, Casco, WI 54205
Cost: $5. Appetizers provided. Cash bar.
