Pop-up Bexley Programme.
The London Borough of Bexley is working in collaboration with high street consultant Retail Revival to
deliver Pop-up Bexley, an initiative to revitalise town centres by supporting specialist and expanding
enterprises through the activation of vacant shops. The project will provide support, training and
guidance for these businesses along with a low-cost, low-risk opportunity to test trade in a town centre.
Pop-up in Welling
Pop-up Welling High Street is taking occupation of a vacant shop in the centre of Welling High Street in November 2021. We are looking for new or expanding enterprises to occupy part of this shop and work in collaboration with others sharing the space.
  • After a short application and interview procedure a group of compatible businesses will be selected to occupy the space rent free for up to five months until March 28th 2022.
  • Each business will be expected to work in the shop for a minimum of 2 days a week and will register all goods sold in the shop through a central till point.
  • After the deduction of bank and credit card charges, all turnover from each business will be transferred to their respective bank accounts at the end of each week.
  • The shop will be set up and managed by Retail Revival on behalf of London Borough of Bexley. Occupants will be expected to participate in a short induction training programme so that they are able to work in small teams to run the shop autonomously.
  • Businesses selected to trade in the shop will benefit from specialised business planning and marketing support to help them expand and grow their businesses in the long term.
  • Businesses selected to trade in the shop will each receive a grant of up to £2k to purchase stock or essential items of equipment to help grow their business*.
