Online businesses test out the high street with pop-up shops

TWO brands are hoping to get their names well known in Didcot with a pop-up shop.
Kuda and Pip & Pantalaimon have been given a temporary home by South Oxfordshire District Council at the shop in Broadway.
The store, which houses both brands will be open for about eight weeks to build up a customer base.
Kuda, which sells items including handbags, scarves and jewellery, is run by Jeanette Starts, while Pip & Pantamailon sells handmade products like lingerie, aprons, cushions and bunting.
Pippa Smith, of Pip & Pantalaimon, said: “This is the first time for both of us. We both sell online but we thought we would give this a go to test it out and promote ourselves.
“We’ve had a really good reaction from this so far and one or both of us might open up a permanent shop early next year.”
