Pop-up shops are quite literally popping up all over New York City. For those who may be wondering what a pop-up shop is, it is a business that takes over a space for a short period of time with a set start and end date. The goal of a pop-up shop is not to be permanent, but to give consumers unique, exclusive, and fleeting experiences.
It is always frustrating scrolling through Instagram and seeing awesome pop-up shops that you want to visit, only to find out that they are closing in a few days and all the leftover time slots to visit are sold out. To be honest, I am still mad that I missed the Google pop-up in the Flatiron district this past December. They printed your face on a marshmallow! If only there was a guide to all of the pop-ups coming to New York City this fall... You’re in luck! No more FOMO (fear of missing out) every time you check your Instagram feed. We’re here to help you locate the shops and exclusive experiences popping up all over NYC this fall. Get ready for a magical fall full of pizza and candy... does it get better than this? Check out what's poppin' in NYC this fall:
