The Indie Collective pop-up shop, located in Midsummer Place, has confirmed that they will remain at the shopping centre until the end of 2021.
The store, which is a hub of local independent businesses, had originally planned to stay until mid-June.
However, having experienced high demand from shoppers and an increased interest from local sellers, the owners of The Indie Collective concept – Adele, Steph and Carly – decided to keep the doors of their unit, located opposite Victoria’s Secret, open for the remainder of the year.
The pop-up is an initiative designed to allow people to ‘shop and support small’. There are hand-crafted items, gifts, sweets, jewellery and other items on sale from local suppliers.
Popular sellers of the shop include Maya’s Atelier for jewellery, Outhouse by Hand for wooden furniture and signs, Slinky Prints for artwork, Kooky Soul for clothing and Shannon Grace Design for candles, to name a few.
All three store owners also have their own product lines, from brands Flat 102, Nutmeg Wall Art, and Art on My Sleeve.
General Manager at Midsummer Place, Shelley Peppard, said: “We’re so thrilled to be able to keep The Indie Collective open for business for the second half of the year. The shop is incredibly popular and offers our visitors something totally unique, in being able to support local businesses from their home town.”
