NORFOLK, Va. (WVEC) -- The Selden Market has selected 18 initial pop-up businesses that will join the 12 storefront tenants once it opens in October.
Each week, at least 7 pup-up businesses will be featured.
Selden Market is Downtown Norfolk's first retail incubator for new and emerging businesses. The goal is to create a constantly changing environment.
Some pop-up businesses may operate for a week, a month, or even join the roster for a day.
"We’re going for energy and vibrancy,” said Drew Ungvarsky, chairman of the Vibrant Spaces committee and CEO and executive creative director of Grow. “We handpicked the 12 tenants, and these pop-ups will complement them to make an exciting launching point for this endeavor."
The Selden Market will continue to receive applications for store front and pop-up businesses.
Every week on Monday a list of the pop-up businesses will be posted to the Selden Market Facebook page. Pop-up booths can be rented for $100 a week, or $300 a months.
