The goal of the Pop-Up Downtown Program is to offer low-rate, short-term leases to local entrepreneurs.  Selected businesses will occupy storefront spaces through the summer, fall, and holiday seasons.  The ultimate goal would be to have those business sign long-term leases.

Additionally, some of the other goals of the program are:

-Enhance the look and feel of downtown Augusta
-Enhance the retail core of downtown with more merchants and products
-Generate more traffic and shopping downtown
-Offer a low cost option for businesses to try a new market and reach new customers
-Match entrepreneurs with available, below-market retail space in downtown Augusta

The spaces will be occupied from May 24th through September 2nd and November 1st through December 31st.

The program is seeking businesses selling gifts, home goods, specialty food and beverages, sporting goods rentals, and other boutiques.
