Welcoming our first retailer to the Stamford Quarter Pop Up Shop!

The Stamford Quarter’s first Pop Up Shop is opening its doors on 3rd May with independent artist and retailer Lousurfacepattern taking up the first residency for one week in the shop which is situated on George Street. 

Currently doing a roaring trade on a well known online platform Lousurfacedpattern is expanding to bricks and mortar with a gift shop that will be selling a wide range of hand designed gorgeous prints and homewares.  

All the bright, bold, wonderful, colourful designs are created by the owner Louise Powers.  The brand is the first independent to take over this specially created ‘blank canvas’ store in the heart of the high street.  It’s designed to offer a springboard for small and independent enterprises to trial a first bricks and mortar concept with minimum risk and maximum flexibility.  It’s a chance to test the waters, and build up a loyal customer base in a high footfall destination.

Bruntwood Works, who have recently unveiled their masterplan for the Stamford Quarter in partnership with Trafford Council, have created the Pop Up Shop in association with property agents Barker Proudlove in order to support and provide ‘incubation’ opportunities for exciting and creative brands to join the Altrincham high street. 

James Tootle, Head of Retail at Bruntwood Works said:

“The opening of Lousurfacedpattern Pop Up shop is a real coup for The Stamford Quarter. Louise’s designs are much sought after on Etsy and we can’t wait for consumers to see the range of products on offer.  The Pop-Up shop is a great addition to the existing retailers and fits in with the aims to provide opportunities for new and aspiring retailers to ‘dip their toe in the water’ and have their own shop for a limited period of time.”
