Library Square to host Pop-up Enterprises for three days

Gladstone Library Square will look different for three days this week when the area becomes a Pop-up Enterprise hub from 3pm to 8pm.

Residents can support microbusiness operators on May 12, 13 and 14 and check out their latest products and businesses in a small-scale market stall setting.

Mayor Matt Burnett said the Pop-up Enterprise trial would briefly change the CBD appearance.

"The Pop-up Enterprise concept provides small-scale home based businesses with the diversity to sell their products or services from a market stall for a limited period," Councillor Burnett said.

Council's Commercial Services Committee Chair Councillor PJ Sobhanian said the Pop-up Enterprises were part of Council's Connect, Innovate and Create program supporting microbusinesses within the Gladstone Region.

"Pop-up Enterprises have the potential to invigorate the area by adding a new dimension to the CBD to attract customers," Cr Sobhanian said.

"Microbusiness operators have been quick to show their interest with many using the opportunity as a market trial to determine whether to further expand their businesses.

"Council is offering free space for limited Pop-up Enterprises during this pilot program."

Gladstone CBD Pop-up Enterprises will be held at Library Square from 3pm to 8pm on:

  • May 12, 13, 14, 
  • May 26, 27, 28,
  • and June 9,10, 11.

Next week's Pop-up Enterprises will offer products and services ranging from children's clothes to homewares, kitchenwares, accessories and apparel, natural health alternatives, artwork, event management/public relations and a service connecting people with jobs in the construction and mining industry.
