Ashford now has its very own PopUp shop to welcome and support local entrepreneurs.
Ashford Town Team has joined forces with PopUp Britain, the retail arm of national enterprise campaign StartUp Britain, to give online businesses the chance to test their trade on the high street.
PopUp Ashford, based in Park Mall, opened its doors for the first time on Monday 14th October and will host up to 10 start-up retailers at a time on a two to four week rotation.
The pop-up shop will run for six months with the different traders working alongside each other. Local businesses interested in taking part should go to www.popupbritain.com/apply
