Pop-up shops, a new way of shopping

By | 17 October, 2016 | 0 comments

November is the prelude to Christmas and the shopping season is already in full swing. This applies not only to conventional shops but also to pop-up shops, whose main distinctive feature is its short opening times. The success of the pop-up shop that IKEA opened in El Rastro for ten days in October is proof that the formula works, although the “hiatus” that The Hovse has announced for this year after three previous editions casts a doubt on its sustainability.

In any case, clients continue to have more options to choose from as you can see on this calendar for November and December. One of these options is El Chic, which opens on Thursday for the whole weekend from 11.00 a.m. to 9.00 p.m. (11.00 a.m. to 3.00 p.m. on Sundays) on Calle Claudio Coello, 53. This is a concept that has been carried out in different Spanish cities with select exhibitors that sell products that would be difficult to find anywhere else. Jewellery, gourmet food, vintage art, children’s clothing… A large variety within the lifestyle range.

Mercado de Productores is also part of this short-timed shopping scene which is continuously gaining momentum. Located in Matadero Madrid, the next two opening dates will be 26-27 November and 10-11 December. Food trucks and international gourmet tastings (including oysters) are just some of the attractions of this gastronomic event. An interesting option is to combine it with a visit to di mad, an initiative based around design that hosts events such as Mercado de Diseño, which will take place on 11-12 November also at Matadero Madrid.

Mercado de Motores is an event loved by all of Madrid’s hipsters thanks to its combination of vintage flea market and Malasaña atmosphere as well as musical performances and other activities. They call themselves the “coolest market in Madrid”. Come and see for yourself.
