Pop up shops in the Howgate – TestTown 2015

Pop up shops in the Howgate – TestTown 2015

The TestTown Falkirk 2015 pop up shopped launched yesterday, 12th October 2015. Each aspiring entrepreneur has branded a section of the retail space with the aim to win the local heats and be entered into the grand final in January 2016, with a chance to win ยฃ10,000 to turn their dreams into a reality.

We were joined by Provost Pat Reid, who kindly agreed to open the event along with the TestTown participants and partners. They will be trading until the 17th October, so make sure you pop along and show your support. There are lovely Christmas present ideas, from handmade chocolates, celebration cakes, bespoke suitcases and bags, handmade wooden keepsakes and Harris Tweed dog collars and leads.

Keep up to date with the progress on our social media pages. Below are some images of the goods on sale in the TestTown unit.
