Student-run pop-up shop launches   

| November 2022

Chichester College students are inviting shoppers to spread a little happiness this Christmas at their new pop-up shop, Renew, located in Crane Street (just off North Street).

The shop offers a range of hand-crafted products – all made by art & design students at the college and designed with a happiness theme, aiming to spread a little joy.

From framed prints to ceramic homewares, jewellery to tote bags – the shop offers a selection of beautiful items which will make affordable, unique Christmas presents.

Shoppers will be supporting young artists as well as the local community, with 10% of all profit made being donated to the Chichester Food Bank while the rest will be invested back into future student projects.

There will also be a donation point in the shop for the food bank, as well as an Eco Swap Shop – offering the opportunity to exchange unwanted, but wearable, clothes for other donated items of clothing.

Renew will be open Tuesday-Saturday (closed on Sundays & Mondays) until Sunday 18 December.

The initiative has been supported by funding from Chichester College’s Enterprise Society and Chichester BID, as well as by Chichester District Council – who have leased the space to the college as part of its pop-up shop initiative, which enables local entrepreneurs and small businesses to trade in a high street location without the commitment or cost of a longer-term lease.
