eBay has launched a pop-up store in Wolverhampton which showcases products from small local businesses.
The online marketplace has launched the store as part of its Retail Revival pilot scheme, a year-long programme in partnership with the City of Wolverhampton which entails working with 64 bricks-and-mortar businesses to improve their online sales.
The concept store, called Home Grown by Wolverhampton, will be open for a month and sell products from 40 small businesses.
Shoppers will be able to pay for purchases using QR codes, and eBay will track sales and footfall metrics in order “to better understand the interaction between physical and online retail”.
