Pop-up shops present an opportunity for municipalities to fill vacant storefronts and entrepreneurs to take a deeper dive into the business community. Often seen in bigger cities, communities like Viroqua, Wis. are using the pop-up shop concept as an economic driver to stimulate growth. Kewaunee County UW-Extension Community Development Educator Claire Thompson says the concept is not new thanks to the holidays, but efforts are being made to broaden its scope.
The presentation featuring the Viroqua Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Nora Roughen-Schmidt will take place October 24 at Moxie’s Supper Club beginning at 5 p.m.
