Q & A

What is the Holiday Pop Up Program?

This program is an initiative of BA Buzz and private landlords to offer retailers a low cost, short term retail space in Broken Arrow’s historic Rose District for the 2017 Holiday season through a juried selection process.

It’s planning time for the 2017 BA Buzz Holiday Pop Up Shop!

When it comes to pop ups “the sky is the limit” as spaces can morph into absolutely anything with the right imagination and ingenuity. So open your mind, let your ideas take flight and if you need any assistance along the way I am always here to co-pilot.

If you or anyone you know would like to test a business idea the BA Buzz Holiday Pop-Up Shops is proven & would be a great way to get started. PM Debra Lewis Wimpee with BA Buzz for an application.

This program is an initiative of BA Buzz and private landlords to offer retailers a low cost ($600), short term retail (6 weeks) space in Broken Arrow’s historic Rose District for the 2017 busy Holiday season through a juried selection process.

What are the dates of the Pop Ups?

The Holiday Pop Up Shops will kick off at the Annual Tea Off on Nov 16th & close on Dec 23rd! The shops will be open Tues – Fri 10-6 & Sat 10-4, after Thanksgiving the shops will open on Mondays 10-6 as well.

How much are the Pop Up Shop spaces?
Each space is $600 for the 6 week period. Each shop space is 10×10… if you need additional space we can discuss the options.  Your “rent” for the space goes to paying the landlord for the space, marketing, bathroom essentials for the customers and shop owners, & event supplies needed through out the 6 weeks. See the “What if a Holiday Pop Up Shop is unable to work their space one day?” question below for any possible additional fees.

Who works the individual shops?

Each individual business is responsible to open and work their business, just as if they owned their very own brick & mortar location. They are responsible for their own cash bank, inventory, displays, wifi for payments, etc. Each business is given an empty space to create their “shop”.  This unique event offers businesses the opportunity to take a peek into owning their own store!

What if a Holiday Pop Up Shop is unable to work their space one day?

Another business participating or the owner of the Pop Up Shops, if available, could go in and sale for them but will receive 13% of sales during that time. All sales during that time period will be ran through a square register to keep record of the sold inventory and then will be paid out less the 13% fee & credit card fees if taken through the square register.

How will the Pop Up shops be marketed?

BA Buzz will market the event and the individual shops throughout the entire event and leading up to the kick off to build momentum. BA Buzz has over 11k unique viewers with a reach of 70k-120k views a week depending on the week. The event will also be marketed on the Rose District website & Rose District Facebook page, as well as pitched to the local TV & radio stations. The Holiday Pop Up Shops have received extensive media coverage over the last 4 years each season.

In addition to the BA Buzz marketing, Debra Wimpee will offer guidance to any business participating on ways to promote their business throughout the event. There are multiple special events scheduled throughout the 6 weeks that push customers to the Holiday Pop Up Shops.

With it being during the Christmas season will there be gift wrapping offered?

Yes. Each Holiday Pop Up Shop that BA Buzz does offers free (donations accepted – we normally have a student doing the wrapping to raise money for band or cheer, etc) gift wrapping starting 2 weeks prior to Christmas.
