These days there are a ton of vacant commercial spaces in every community. The For Rent signs seem to breed like rabbits, especially on Main Streets in small towns. It can get a little depressing to see so many empty storefronts.

Luckily, some folks are turning their frustrations into action and converting a severe downer situation into a win-win-win. It is happening all over the country and Goffstown, NH is the next town to join in the fun.

This weekend, an unrented retail space right on Main Street with a fabulous view of the Piscataquog River is joining the fashionable “Pop-Up” crowd and becoming Local Color Gallery until the landlord finds a permanent tenant. When that happens, and we all hope that it does, we might move the gallery to another vacant space.

Here is how it works:

We artists run a lovely little gallery in the beautiful space on weekends. While we are open, the citizens of the town can come in to enjoy the art and the not-vacant space. Some of them will buy art. Others will remember how great the building looked and get an idea to move their business there or tell another business owner about it. Some will just feel happy that there is a bit more life in the center of their town.


Pop-Ups are Temporary-Visit Soon:

35 Main Street 
Goffstown, NH 03045
