Pop-up stores help fill mall space during economic slump


Unlike the vacancies created by bad luck and a bad economy, these and other stores — including Calendar Club, Hickory Farms and some Gucci sneaker shops — are set up to close up.  These "pop-up," or temporary, stores actually benefit from the downturn as mall owners and other landlords are often happy to have a two- or three-month tenant rather than no one to fill voids left by the departures of Linens 'n Things, Circuit City and other retailers.  Some mall companies even have people whose full-time jobs are to fill temporary store space.


"Mall owners have discovered they can line malls with kiosks and fill up empty stores with short-term merchants," says Jim Bieri, a Detroit-based retail real estate consultant.  "It's hard to do the temporary merchandising, but companies figure out how to do it short term for Christmas because the lines are so long."
