Good episode? Give it some love!
The first question asked to Stephen was "what is a Pop Up Retail"?

Stephen explains they have been around since the beginning of time and were previously known as markets and bazaars.  So they are short-term activities in parks and common areas.  Flea markets would also be considered as Pop-Up Retailing.

Stephen explains they have become more sophisticated.

Traditionally a Pop-Up Retailer was three to six months.    Now there are companies like Sook that create micro pop-ups, such as three to four hours.

The success of modern-day retailing is about integrating technology with the core foundation of retailing which is customer service.  Not just good or okay customer service, you have to wow them.  Stephen also said that 78% of people still want to touch feel and engage with a product before they buy it and 64% will come back and seek out that sales associate for their authenticity and genuineness.

Stephen also touches on pop-ups for fundraisers, and also for coaches!
