Welcome to Main St. PopUp Shop

525 Main St. Mahone Bay, NS B0J 2E0

If you are looking for prime retail rental – this is a rare opportunity. 

The power of Main St for retail and tourists – in a real store front – is a fantastic opportunity to capture your target market. Tourists are here to buy your goods – and retail shops invite top spenders – this is not a barter zone. 
If you are looking for local buyers – they pass by this location every day to wherever they are going. 

Our goal at Main St. PopUp Shop is to create a new local experience and attract major brands, professionals or local artisans to use the store on a daily, weekly or monthly term on an as needed basis and provide local vendors a real retail experience.

Here you could find something different every day, or the same familiar brands – it all depends on your support of them, and their fulfillment of what you want. This is a community created for you. 

In Store Now and Coming Soon!


Gifts For Her!

An example is a dog bakery that does a weekend pet lovers event when traffic is high and tourists are around.

Or a quilt ’show’ that displays its wares and the works of other local quilters for sale during a season that they are peak.

What about a highly known brand or break-out designer that wants to showcase or launch a new line.

A local photographer who would love to show and sell his extensive collection.

A new author who wants to do a book launch and signing.

A talented artist who has a ton of work and selling just 1 piece could really help to get exposure.

A real estate agency that wants exposure to a new market but not have a full store front

An accountant who wants a fast drop-in store front office during tax time (H&R started this way)

Or perhaps a baby shop/maternity store that may not have enough daily demand but could have a ‘baby shower’ 1 day flash sale.

The list of possibilities are endless, which is why it’s a new shopping adventure every day.
