Fort Henry Mall • Kingsport, TN
During our search for The Next Great Pop-Up Shop we saw the need for a space that could accommodate local businesses and makers that couldn’t support a brick-and-mortar space on their own. We came across the Urban Market Kingsport, a merchant marketplace featuring local boutiques, gifts and handmade items.
They shared our vision for providing entrepreneurs with a brick-and-mortar experience and asked their merchants for feedback. Was there interest in having a presence in the Fort Henry Mall? The answer was yes!
Mall owners committed to creating a move-in-ready space and we worked together to select floor, paint and design a one-of-a-kind store. The lease agreement was made based on projected merchants and sales feasible for the initial year. The collaborative process created a win-win for the property, the Urban Market and the community.
