Battersea Power Station and Curated Makers pop-up to support local small businesses
Curated Makers, a retail concept that links local independent artists and makers with the high street, will be opening its first London pop-up when the new Battersea Power Station shopping destination opens on 14 October.
The space will play host to more than 40 local independent small businesses selling homeware, candles, clothing, artwork and more.
Since launching in 2017, the Manchester-based marketplace has hosted a series of pop-ups in large stores and shopping centres including John Lewis, M&S, Paperchase and Next.
Megan Jones, chief executive and founder of Curated Makers, said: “We are so excited to be opening at Battersea Power Station. Our permanent ‘pop-up’ allows locals curators to have the opportunity to sell their hand-made goods on a huge scale.
“We make it easy to shop small, whilst already in a shopping environment. The in-person shopping experience simply cannot be replicated online. To touch, feel and smell products made from local craftspeople, meet them on the shop floor and even watch them work in store, is what our stores are all about.”
Battersea Power Station is aiming to be one of the most exciting retail and leisure destinations in London when the first of over 100 bars, restaurants and shops open on 14 October.
Sam Cotton, head of leasing at Battersea Power Station, said: “Supporting small, independent businesses has been a key element to creating the new retail and leisure destination at Battersea Power Station from the very beginning, as seen with the great mix of independent retailers that have been open in Circus West Village since 2017.
“We are continuing to work with independents inside the Power Station and are excited to have local artisans selling their wares at Curated Makers when we open the Power Station’s doors on 14 October.”
