sale it in outlets, advertising as ” Brand Discount Show “. Exist business square market compared with the pop up market, not only the renting cost, but also the different status
goods. It is not competition with exist higher level market, it is coordinate relationship. At downtown or rural area, the pop up market give possibility for customers reach good productions.
