With the holiday season just around the corner, retail stores are preparing for the Black Friday madness. This holiday season is looking promising compared to that state of the economy a year ago. According to a 2016 holiday shopping report by the Rubicon Project, consumers plan to spend 12 percent more on their holiday shopping than they did in 2015. Cyber Monday is predicted to slightly outpace Black Friday in popularity. With online shopping having the advantage, it is crucial for stores to stand out. Shipping containers are an affordable and eye-catching way to attract customers. Shipping containers open up a whole new world of opportunities for a business owner. If you are in the market for a flexible space to transform your business idea into a reality, it is time to think outside the box.
Pop-up shops are becoming a growing trend, the unique and innovative design attracts consumers especially the millennials. A pop-up shop made with shipping containers is flexible and can be relocated when necessary. Some companies even travel city to city with their pop-up shop to gain better exposure. Pop-up shops are great for seasonal events and holidays because of the crowds. Pop-up shops can also be used to test the practicality of new products or potential business ideas. Shipping containers are a great option for business owners who are looking to expand their business but are on a tight budget. Shipping containers can be used as a branding opportunity to engage with the consumers. Container structures draw attention from the crowd and help build brand awareness with their unique design. Now that the shipping container pop-up shop has the crowd’s attention, it becomes a part of that brand and consumers become a part of a fun and interactive branded experience. An open-sided container is perfect for pop-up shops because you get full access to the interior of the shipping container.
With the peak of consumers around the holidays, stores are ordering extra inventory to compensate the surge of holiday shoppers. But where do you store all this extra inventory?
