A Launchpad for Acton
Project: Pop-Up is activating an OpBox mobile retail unit at 577 Mass Ave in West Acton, within the building's street-front parking lot and adjacent green space. Brands have the opportunity to pop up in this charming neighborhood at a subsidized rate, and be provided with access to a suite of resources to help seed their success.
This project is being funded by the Massachusetts Office of Business Development REDO grant program as part of the state’s efforts to accelerate economic recovery from the Covid-19 pandemic. The 495/MetroWest Partnership also played a critical role in securing grant funding for this project.
Following the challenges the pandemic has induced, Acton is thrilled to welcome emerging brands, artists and more to their downtown district.
Ideal Categories Include:
Independent brands and retailers, artists, makers, galleries and other unique cultural or bespoke experiences. Entrepreneurial and forward-thinking concepts encouraged to apply.
