A program through the nonprofit Downtown Tulsa Partnership is giving entrepreneurs and small businesses a chance to test the Downtown Tulsa market through affordable short-term leases.

This is the second of the holiday pop-up through Downtown Tulsa Partnership.

Splendid Treasures owner, Patsy Hoyle, is in one of the pop-up shops. She said this program has helped her accomplish goals with her business.

“We sell fine home goods and gifts; things like mixers for drinks, hot chocolates, hot apple ciders, lots of awesome things for your kitchen, cookbooks, toys for kids," Hoyle said.

While the program hopes to create more foot traffic downtown, the nonprofit also wants to help entrepreneurs grow their small businesses and experience setting up affordable brick-and-mortar spaces.

Emily Scott with Downtown Tulsa Partnership said Pop-Up Downtown was created to help fill those vacant ground floor retail spaces in downtown, which were created by the pandemic.

“(We) wanted to get a broad range of different products, services and gifting opportunities. And we also have a core goal of this program to amplify diverse and nontraditional entrepreneurs," Scott said.

Even though Christmas has come and gone, each business will be in the space until mid-January, so you still have time to visit.
