Are You Interested In Becoming One Of Our Merchants?
Proper Shops gives emerging online brands the opportunity to sell in a brick-and-mortar without the risk and high expenses of signing a long term commercial lease. The idea behind it is to let customers see, touch, and experience the products.
Featured will be a variety of high quality retailers in the heart of downtown. The ideal location and limited hours gives you the opportunity to market during the highest traffic times, Thursday through Sunday and during the 2nd Saturday event. Shoppers will have the opportunity to enjoy a cocktail, listen to live music, all while browsing and spending money on your merchandise.
ONLY OPEN DURING HIGH TRAFFIC TIMES
Initial hours will be Th & Fri 3pm - 8pm, Sat 11am - 8pm, Sun 11am - 5pm and some possible special events. This allows shop owners to ensure busy crowds and reduce staffing expenses.
IDEAL DOWNTOWN LOCATION
Located on the south east corner of Congress and 5th Avenue, Across from Hotel Congress and adjacent to the Playground and Hub Restaurant
