What is The Great British Pop-Up?

The Great British Exchange started 8 years ago with two goals in mind:

1. To service growing British companies and help them develop and sell their products into retail.

2. To service the retail sector by bringing exciting newness, localism and unique products and experiences to their main ranges in store.

Since then, we have generated an amazing £100m worth of orders for small businesses, shipped 3 million boxes, developed an active network of 20,000 British brands and managed 5,000 pop-up events.

We specialise in bringing newness and localism to the high street and we are responsible for John Lewis’ hugely successful regionally sourced pop-ups in stores up and down the country. We are known for in-store experiences and meet the maker events, which have been designed to re-engage disenchanted shoppers

So how can we help you grow your business with our Pop-Up Shops?

A call has gone out to us from top retailers, including John Lewis and Boots, who are on the hunt for the newest British made gifts . Our team of sourcing experts have been tasked with finding the most innovative product ranges from small independent businesses and artisan producers for major British retailers and WE NEED YOU to help us fly the flag for small brands!

We want to hear from British brands that have something a bit different to offer the gifting market. From unusual personalised gifts, to small batch locally made homewares – and everything in between - the search is now on for the very best of British gifting.

Everyone is welcome to apply for our all-year-round Pop-Ups. No matter how big or small your business is, we want to hear from ambitious business owners that are ready to make a leap and reach bigger markets. We will guide you every step of the way and help make your Pop-Up shop in-store a success.

What are you waiting for? It's time to take your brand offline and onto the highstreet!
