Our aim is to help your business grow, flourish and expand

  • Set up your own retail premises (or additional premises) in the most prime CBD location with great foot traffic and no long term commitment right on Wellington's iconic waterfront. 

  • Enjoy repeat customers with low overheads while growing your business.

  • Become part of a community of creatives and small business owners with friendly networking and support opportunities.


Do you own a creative business that could benefit from all the above?  


"I couldn't think of a better opportunity for a small family business like ours, to be placed on one of the busiest stretches of walkways in a city with a retail pop-up store is simply unheard of... except for Wellington. This allows us to reach more customers than we usually would and it is great exposure for our business.

... thanks to this opportunity we are now looking to open our own permanent retail store in the central city over the next few months, without the pop-up village we would never have been able to do this."

Benefits of sharing

Maybe your business is just starting out, you don't have enough products yet to fill a whole container, or you only have a few days a week free to run the container, you can absolutely share one container with another (or multiple) businesses. If you don't know anyone whom you can ask, let us know. We may know someone who's in the same boat and wants to join you. ​

You will need to work out between all members who will be staffing the container when etc.
