Although Storefront only launched one year ago, it has quickly become a go-to for merchants looking to rent pop-up space in San Francisco and New York. We've been crossing our fingers for the online marketplace to launch in our city, and now it's finally happening, thanks to a whopping $7.3 million in funding they received this month.
"Storefront gives LA brands, fashion designers and artists a new way to grow their business through pop-up retail spaces," explains Tristan Pollock, co-founder and COO of Storefront. "Los Angeles alone is home to over 841 art galleries and museums, including the Museum of Contemporary Art, which was originally started in a temporary gallery space on 152 North Central Avenue in Downtown Los Angeles. I think that clearly shows the powerful potential of pop-up retail experiences."
If you're a brand looking to rent for your next LA event, check out some of Storefront's temporary retail offerings here. Prices range from $1,100/day at The Quest in Venice to that Melrose spot formerly occupied by Kanye West's Yeezus pop-up for $55K/month.
To toast the exciting launch, next Wednesday, April 30 Storefront is hosting a rager inside one of our very favorite creative venues in DTLA, The Unique Space. The party runs from 7-11pm will feature food trucks, beauty booths, workshops and a handful of LA vendors. Learn more and RSVP here!
