Paging all St. Louis business owners! Have you ever dreamed of owning your own storefront in a swanky location? Are you ready to move your business to level up? Hoping to explore new ways to reach potential customers? Pop Local, a program that’ll offer not one, not two, but three months of free rent to a space at The Boulevard has your name all over it. Apply to Pop Local here through February 19, 2021.
Pop Local is open to any business concept. From photography studios to clothing boutiques to specialty gift shops to jewelers to food, all are welcome to apply through February 19, 2021. Next steps include announcing finalists on on March 1, 2021 and the winner on March 25, 2021. Then, the grand opening of the Pop Local winner’s store is slated for May 1, 2021.
The winner will receive the light-filled space I’m standing in front of, located at #26 The Boulevard. Neighboring stores include Crate and Barrel, Soft Surroundings (see some of my favorite SS pieces here and here), Deer Creek Coffee, and Loft. The Boulevard is an open-air, shopping center right in the heart of Clayton, Ladue, Richmond Heights, and Brentwood. It also sits next to the Clayton MetroLink station and directly across from the Saint Louis Galleria shopping mall.
Pop Local Perks
In addition to a rent-free storefront for 3 months, Pop Local will be offering $2000 to bring the winner’s storefront vision to life. Even further, the program will provide publicity and marketing assistance. Winning this amazing package comes with no obligation to commit to a lease in the space. Nothing to lose, but so much to gain! Apply here.
