NEW YORK (MainStreet) -- With Halloween just around the corner, the holiday season has begun. With it comes the holiday pop-up store, which experts say make for good tenants, especially in a down economy.The temporary stores have most commonly opened for one to three months to sell seasonal merchandise from Halloween to Christmas. Over the past few years, especially during the 2008-09 recession, the appeal of pop-up stores broadened to a wider tenant base, including large and small apparel retailers, fashion designers and other entrepreneurs perhaps looking to test the waters for a line of merchandise.
|An IBISWorld analyst estimates that 1,600 pop-up stores will have opened in the U.S. for Halloween this year, but that's only a hint of the impact of the temporary stores.|
