POPABLE AND WALMART JOIN FORCES TO HELP SMALL BUSINESS RETAILERS GET BACK ON THEIR FEET AFTER THE PANDEMIC

WALMART | November 01, 2022

Popable, a pop-up shop marketplace platform connecting brands and spaces for short-term retail leasing, and Walmart, the largest national retail department store, announced today that they have entered a strategic partnership that will allow small businesses to rent retail space in Walmart stores across the country for short-term leasing. Small businesses will have the opportunity to rent out pop-up space in designated Walmart stores without being committed to a long-term lease. "The growth opportunities for emerging brands are at the heart of Popable's pop-up shop platform. We are excited to partner with Walmart to bring new brands to local communities while providing small business owners the ability to thrive with some great built-in foot traffic, said Scott Blair, the Co-Founder, and CEO of Popable. "For retailers emerging from a challenging year in the face of post-covid impacts ranging from rising economic concerns to delivery issues at the ports, pop-up retail could be a great way to move excess inventory. Brands and spaces can both list on Popable's online website (https://Popable.com). Small businesses can then be paired with their local participating Walmart to connect and enter into an agreeable temporary leasing agreement. The timeframe of these leasing agreements will be predetermined by the small business and can range in time from a month up to a year but could grow to a longer-term agreement. The terms are decided and negotiated by the brands and spaces directly themselves. "Supporting small businesses has always been a priority for Walmart. We are proud to work with Popable to offer local brands an opportunity to grow inside our stores, This is a great example of our focus on offering services unique to the neighborhoods we serve through our store of the community initiative." Senior Director of Retail services for Walmart, Darryl Spinks. Due to the pandemic, many small businesses across the nation severely suffered to the point where they had to close shop. Now, with this opportunity, several small businesses and start-ups will have the chance to bounce back in time for the holidays.
