Pop Up Shops in North Shields

New shops are 'popping up' in North Shields in time for the Christmas rush. The Council is launching 4 pop-up shops for fledgling businesses in the former Connexions centre in Russell Street. Opening at the end of November, the shops are all different sizes and are available to rent for 6 months, with an option to extend the lease for a further 6 months. Many people work on a very small scale - sometimes online or from home - and may want to test their ideas with temporary shop space to sell their products. Any small business wanting space in the pop up shops should contact Daniel Wise on: 0191 643 6427 or email:
