Licence for Pop-Up Charity Shop in S/C Retail Unit

Short Term Licence for a Charity “Pop-Up” Shop in Self-Contained Retail Unit


This Short Term Licence for a Charity “Pop-Up” Shop in Self-Contained Retail Unit should be used where the owner of a shop wishes to allow a Charity to occupy the shop on a short-term basis to operate a retail business. This could allow the Charity to trade for a short period (e.g. selling Christmas cards or gifts in the run up to Christmas) to raise additional money for the Charity. Alternatively, it could allow the Charity to try selling a particular type of goods or a variety of new and/or second hand products (i.e. to supplement its other fundraising activities) for a short period, and then, if the Charity is successful, it could later take on these or other shop premises on a lease to run a retail business on an ongoing basis. The Licence is suitable for making any self-contained retail premises available to a Charity as a shop.
