Win Your Own Retail Space in Downtown Edmonton
Three months of retail space. Two local brands. One competition.
Calling all small businesses! Always dreamed of hosting a pop-up for your brand? Well you can do so entirely rent-free thanks to Manulife Place. Until June 1st, 2018, Manulife Place is welcoming local brands to enter their #ExclusivelyEdmonton Pop-up Competition for the chance to win three months of rent-free retail space in downtown Edmonton. Two lucky winners will receive retail spaces in white-box condition that they can turn into the pop-up space of their dreams, opening September 1st.
Why should I apply?
Located in the heart of Edmonton's business district, Manulife Place is downtown Edmonton's exclusive shopping destination. Directly connected to the city's vast pedway system and with access to many of the commercial centres downtown, your brand will gain immediate exposure and profile. While winners will be responsible for providing the product, merchandising and staffing, Manulife Place will also help market and promote the pop-ups, drawing visitors to your space.
What are they looking for?
By tapping into the best of the best from Edmonton's entrepreneurial scene, Manulife Place wants to curate an environment that celebrates Edmonton's local talent. They’re looking for non-cookie cutter retail concepts to animate the retail landscape at their downtown Edmonton location. What does that mean? It means unique, authentic, cool, trendy or never been seen or done before concepts that, of course, feature beautiful “I must have that” products. Worried about the cost of outfitting your pop-up? Keep calm and think minimal. The judges love retail concepts like Deciem, Sleepover and Package Free and would be thrilled to see something like this from their applicants.
How do I apply?
The judges want to know a little about you, your business and what you envision your pop-up to be, so Manulife Place is looking for an application in PDF format that addresses a few important questions that they have outlined on their website. Before you apply, be sure to visit manulifeplace.com/winspace and read through the full contest details (including their terms & conditions and FAQs!) and simply submit your application PDF alongside the signed contest waiver and your contact details.
So what are you waiting for? Apply today and make your pop-up dreams come true!
