Pop-up mall Boxpark Shoreditch is offering a brand or retailer the chance to win a unit rent free for three months.
This follows on from the success of the first ‘Win a Free Pop Up’ competition, which debuted last year and saw winners, young fashion label London Loves LA, launch in December 2012.
Boxpark said that due to so many “exciting and innovative” brands sending in applications they decided to extend the opportunity to two runners up. Jewellery brand Finchittida Finch and young fashion label China Doll Boutique have both opened this year.
The winner of the latest competition will win a free pop-up unit for three months during spring-summer 2013. All entries must be submitted by February 28.
Last August the Shoreditch-based mall revealed plans for a significant refresh of brands after eight of the original lease holders dropped out at the end of the year-long contract. At the time, businesses complained that footfall and trading had been low, although founder Roger Wade said he had “a queue of brands lining up to join”.
