Pop Up Shop is planning to pop up in a new, larger location soon. Despite the name, Pop Up Shop is actually a permanent retail shop that has called the Steam Plant Square building home for a few years now. The shop is a part of the non profit arts organization Terrain and is retailer of various products, gifts, apparel , home items and more from local artisans and makers. A sign on the window explains the business sells items that are " Spokane sourced, Spokane made " .
But, work has already begun to relocate the store to a new much larger location, still in Downtown Spokane however. The Pop Up Shop will move into the former Whiz Kids storefront on the second floor of River Park Square ( Whiz Kids moved to the other end of the mall a while ago ). It will also dawn a new name and logo better reflecting the purpose behind the business. After the move the store will be called From Here.
From Here will now have 4200 square feet of space, a significant increase in space from the former location. The new space will allow From Here to sell all the same items as before, but they will also be able to accommodate an additional 25 artists and makers.
Several renderings of what the completed store will look like line the windows of the new space and workers are inside moving the get the new store operational. In fact plans call for From Here to open as early as the end of this month, we'll hopfully follow up on their opening as the time gets closer.
