POP-UP AT THE STATION
New opportunities to join our retail hub!
Do you run a business that kids and families love to visit? Looking to launch a new range, create unique customer experiences, or trial bricks-and-mortar retail? The Station may be the next destination for your business!
The Station is Newcastle’s heritage former railway station that sits between the city’s East End and the waterfront. The unique site hosts a collective of ground floor retail tenancies (including a cafe, gallery spaces, hand-crafted jewellery, clothing, homewares and art) connecting onto a huge community piazza with picnic seating, a kids playspace and scooter track, misting sprays and preserved features of the former railway station.
Just 2 mins walk from the Light Rail, The Station see's regular foot traffic, and is often activated with pop-up attractions including market days, group fitness, music and food events.
THE KINDS OF BUSINESSES WE WANT
We’re looking to bring additional food offerings to the precinct with colourful options for the kids, as well as delicious locally inspired flavours for people living and working in the area. Baked goods, fresh produce or gelato would be a great addition to the hub.
High quality and interesting shopping experiences that everyone can enjoy. This could be a gift shop, clothing, or general retail with a funky Newcastle flair. We see this as a valuable addition to The Station.
Toys and Apparel
A range of kids clothing, accessories, games and toys. With the light rail connecting The Station with the beach, swimwear and surf gear would be a perfect match.
Education and Fun
Tying in with the nearby Newcastle Museum: kids science books, experiment and model sets, as well as interactive workshops that stir the imagination would be a great fit.
