Our Next Big Idea: EV Pop-Up Retail Park

We’ve done the opera. We’ve done festivals. We’ve done theatre, fashion shows and food trucks.

Lately we’ve been dreaming up the next big thing for EV. Here’s what we’re thinking: a pop-up retail park.

The EV pop-up retail park would operate as a temporary, seasonal market. Our hope is to create a unique shopping experience in an atypical space. We envision an eclectic variety of retail and services: produce, apparel, rentals, artisans, specialty foods – the list goes on. You might find things you need, things you love – maybe even some things you didn’t expect to discover. We imagine the space coming to life with music, entertainment and events, bringing together East Villagers from all over the city.

Now we're turning to you, Calgary. We're doing some research to see if our concept can become a reality. If you have a moment, please take our short survey. And if you're a prospective retailer who thinks this could be the perfect opportunity for your business, we want hear from you too! Please take the survey as well so we can pick your brain and collect your contact info.
