After activating vacant storefronts along Houston Street in December of 2013 and 2014, the OPEN Downtown Pop-Up shops hop across 281 to take over four spots in historic St. Paul Square. The collaborative initiative is designed to engage customers while authenticating downtown “as a vibrant urban space ready for long-term investment.” Besides tempting shoppers with everything from locally crafted apparel and pet jewelry to folk art and beauty products, OPEN features a steady stream of food trucks, live music and DJ sets, pet adoptions, yoga classes and even a movie night.
