The GOODS from THISOPENSPACE
Vancouver, BC | The final pop-up of the year opened earlier this month at our Columbia St. space, and what better way to end 2014 than with a cozy winter forest concept store by the good folks at Fjällräven. The Swedish heritage brand opened their first Canadian flagship store earlier this year along the stretch of outdoor gear stores on Broadway between Main & Cambie. For the holidays, they’ve brought a pop-up to Chinatown to feature their classic Kånken backpacks in a rainbow of stylish colours. There’s a curated assortment of quality goods at the pop-up. Fjällräven is a new comers to North America but the brand has been around since the 60’s making high quality durable goods made to last a lifetime. The opening party was a hit with treats from our neighbours Bestie and a very special bourbon cocktail from the good guys at the Juice Truck. Sadly, there’s no more bourbon cocktail to go around but still plenty of reason to visit the pop-up that’s on until December 31. Shop hours are 11-6PM daily and 5PM on Sunday at 434 Columbia St., Chinatown. Check out the photos from the opening party below and find out why we love the Kånken backpack here.

thisopenspace is a full-service pop-up production agency. Their flagship storefront in Chinatown is an idea playground and a pop-up ready space. It’s where they have hosted over 70 pop-up concepts since 2012. But there is so much more…
POP-UP READY SPACES
Empty space sucks and space for short-term use is rare. We help clients find flexible space and open underutilized space for temporary use. We’ve done this around Vancouver neighbourhoods including Mount Pleasant, Gastown, South Granville, and Fraserhood. Do you have or need space for temporary use? Contact us.
PROMOTION AND PRESS RELATIONS
It ain’t a party if no one shows up. We provide promotion and press relations exclusively to short term pop-up shops, exhibitions, and events. Whether it’s happening at one of our spaces or not, we help clients connect with their audience. Here’s the proof.
AN ENGAGED AUDIENCE
A pop-up is a limited time offer and we make sure that clients get noticed by an engaged audience that we’ve built over the last two years. This includes over 1000+ subscribers to our monthlycoolkids newsletter, 3000+ Instagram, 1900+Facebook, and 1500+ Twitter followers. We leverage our audience and get clients noticed.
Over the past two years, we’ve seen the best and the less than stellar. We know the elements that make a pop-up event successful and those to avoid. Our team has a track record of producing successful retail, food, and entertainment events. We design unique and memorable experiences.
“The incredibly successful rotating pop-up shop that offers people the chance to try out a storefront” – Vancouver Sun, August 2014
