Downtown Pop Up Retail Program

In an effort to activate the neighborhoods along the Atlanta Streetcar route, Central Atlanta Progress is excited to announce its Pop Up Retail Program to provide innovative solutions to under-utilized property. Partnering with local property owners, the program will bring new energy and vibrancy to vacant storefronts while supporting local artisans and businesses.

The goal of the Pop Up Retail Program is to positively impact our neighborhoods by:   

  • Supporting the Atlanta Streetcar and generating ridership
  • Helping new and established businesses attract customers and generate increased revenues
  • Enhancing the appearance of commercial areas
  • Creating day and night vibrancy and activity along the Streetcar Corridor

Come shop with us June 1st through August 31st.

After a huge response from interested retailers, CAP has chosen, to date,  15 merchants to participate in the program.

We're thrilled to offer clothing, gifts, accessories, pet supplies, shoes, furniture and home accessories, local goods and more!

We'd like to send a huge thank you to participating Downtown property owners and retailers - we're excited to bring new energy and vibrancy to vacant storefronts!

Thanks to all who came out for the sneak peek event March 29th at the Sweet Auburn Curb Market! More than 500 people came out to enjoy great food at the Curb Market, shop at the Indie Craft Experience, and meet the Pop Up retailers! Check out pictures of the event here!
