The World's Largest Resource for the Cart, Kiosk, and Temporary Retail Industry

Birmingham, AL – Small numbers of Birmingham merchants will sell their wares from temporary stores in vacant storefronts downtown as part of a “pop-up shops” initiative, the Regional Planning Commission of Greater Birmingham announced today.

Five merchants will kick off the project Friday, Feb. 8th from noon to 7 p.m. and Feb. 9 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. selling snacks, clothing, furniture and other goods out of the Johnny Cochran building near the intersection of 20th Street North and Third Avenue North.

The initiative is part of a greater “Pop-up Project” that is intended to find temporary uses for vacant storefronts and lots downtown and support other short-term projects that create energy in the city center. The goal of the greater initiative, which sometimes is referred to as “guerrilla urbanism,” is to encourage foot and bicycle traffic downtown and use temporary projects to foster permanent change.
