You could try short term leasing with a Westfield in your area? Note that this is not pop up leasing as per the walkways, but 8-12 week “activations” of otherwise empty shops.

We are in one at the moment going on 2 months and we have another 6 weeks left before we move.

It’s been a great way to get store ownership experience, high traffic and a “legitimacy” that is hard to come by otherwise.

You can expect to be paying around half of what a normal tenant in there would be.

Now we are looking for permanent shops outside the centre to move to, but even if you treat the whole period as a marketing exercise/trial it’s not too bad.

The worst thing about it is having to be open 7 days.
