Pop-up retail, also known as a pop-up store or flash retailing, is a trend of opening short-term sales spaces that last for days to weeks before closing down, often to catch onto a fad or timely event.

They are temporary retail spaces that sell merchandise of any kind mobile food trucks, designer fashion, book stores,  pet stores,  Christmas stores … if you have an idea and something to sell, this might be a great first step!
