In addition to operating a showroom in Edmonton, Alberta, we’re on the road come Spring and Fall! Providing customers with in-person shopping opportunities is an important part of the Poppy Barley experience. Our retail partnerships and popup shops are your chance to touch, feel (and even smell) the quality of our footwear.
Whether it’s a one-day event or lasts several weeks, our popup shops typically offer 50+ appointments and “sell out” before event days, and we always encourage walk-ins. In the past, we’ve had gracious hosts, including Noul in Vancouver; a boutique wine shop in Calgary, Vine Styles; show homes in Edmonton; and a longterm shop-in-shop at Brodawka & Friends in Toronto.
At Simons West Edmonton Mall, the first out-of-province expansion for the Quebec retailer, Poppy Barley hosted a month-long popup series in April 2015. Working within the department store setting, we created a series of artistic displays and store-wide signage that spoke to our Spring collection and complemented the Simons’ brand for a span of 30 days. In addition to hosting a product knowledge seminar with 50 Simons staff, every Saturday Poppy Barley staff spent the day measuring customers and placing in-person orders.
Simons is one of our largest partners to date, and Poppy Barley was the retailer’s first popup guest.
