The pop up store represents a retail tool for brands. It allows to test a product, a location, a concept and it increases simultaneously the brand awareness.

The pop up store is the ultimate field to text a brand, a new collection or a product to new market and customers thanks to its limited terms. It is often used to arouse interest on new products and to test consumers feedback. The pop up or temporary store allows to develop a new concept before implementing it on a traditional chain of stores. It is a mix of tools for communication and retail.

Most of brands take advantage of it by placing it in various locations, having different goals, a sign that is a successful and interesting format. For customers it is an opportunity to learn about a brand, in a different key, to live new experiences with a renown brand. The concept of a pop up store is essential for business success, it must hit for originality and express the DNA of the brand. The clear goal rather then the goals represents the starting point to design the concept. Other keys of success are the location, as the  place and the building enable to host the pop up store and the duration. Variables such as space and duration always depends on the target.
