Pop-Up Shop, 300 Feet in the Air


Pop-up shops usually appear in existing retail locations, or clever spots in cities near major shopping districts. But the Cliffside Shop in Colorado’s Eldorado Canyon sets new records for both location and difficulty of access. Selling sweatshirts and socks, the Cliffside Shop manages to be both incredibly illusive and amazingly present. Via DesignBoom:

the store has been dubbed ‘ the world’s most remote pop-up store’

courageous climbers making their way to the mountain’s summit can be seen — in the video above — stopping at the ‘cliffside shop’ to pick up some gear before continuing on their way. creative agency workinprogress was responsible for the thinking behind the event, working with 37.5 technology on creating not only an engaging marketing initiative, but a campaigning one, as well. donations were made to the access fund and american alpine club to support their mission of providing access to public lands for climbing, and $100 was donated to the action committee for eldorado for every climber that visited the shop or signed up for a membership to either organization.
