Shipping Container Emerging Trend: The Pop-Up Retail Space

Pop-up stores are everywhere! These ultra hip mobile shops are increasingly becoming the go-to marketing strategy for all kinds of retailers, from food to fashion.

Whether it be for testing new locations, markets, campaigns, or products, the pop-up format is a low-risk, low-cost option to build a buzz and reach out to potential customers.

Pop-up retail space is being created in a host of shapes, sizes, and site locations. These startups can be found in a traditional brick-and-mortar store, as a standalone kiosk, or even in the form of a motorized vehicle, jumping on board the food truck trend.

Just in case you haven’t already heard, one of the coolest options to construct a pop-up store is using a shipping container. Here’s why.

100% Customizable

Consumers are always expecting a unique shopping experience. With shipping container retail space, you can give them that can’t-miss event like no other, grabbing and keeping their attention.

The great thing about a shipping container shop is that you can customize it anyway you choose. Add windows and doors, join multiple containers together, or even stack them on top of each other. Whatever you can dream up, our containers and our team at Axcess Box can make that happen.


If only you could pick any place. Wait, you can! Location is everything. So, if people can’t get to your shop, bring your shop to them with shipping container pop-up retail space.

And the best part? When your promotion is finished in one location, you can easily have your pop-up shop delivered to a new site.

Stolen or damaged merchandise is always a major concern for any retail owner—but not for you. Your products will be stored in a secure shipping container, completely protected from would-be thieves and the elements.

All Axcess Boxes are made with corrosion resistant Corten® steel and fitted with a watertight rubber seal. What’s more, our mighty metal boxes come with double-locking door posts and a vandal-resistant lock, ensuring all your valuable inventory is safe and secure.
