Shop Small, Give Big: Pop-Up Shops Hit Wilkes-Barre

It's holiday shopping that's popping in one part of Luzerne County.

More than a dozen pop-up shops have hit downtown Wilkes-Barre at 41 South Main Street.

Newswatch 16's Ryan Leckey highlighted the holiday-themed event on Friday.

The project surrounds the second annual Midtown Holiday Pop-up Shops.

They are open every weekend through December 23.

On Saturdays and Sundays, the shops are open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.

On Sunday, they are open from noon to 4 p.m.

Organizers of the pop-up shops say they help bring more business downtown and possibly interest small businesses in setting up a permanent space.

Newswatch 16 first highlighted the shops when they opened last month.
