SAN ANTONIO (Dec. 5, 2017) — With the holidays approaching, the City of San Antonio is bringing its popular pop up shops to life once again with the OPEN Holiday Market. The market will take place on two weekends, December 8-10 and December 15-17 and the shops will be open Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. in 140 and 212 E. Houston St. 

OPEN is an initiative of the Center City Development and Operations Department (CCDO) in partnership with property owners and retailers to offer local entrepreneurs a no-cost short-term lease in vacant downtown properties. The program activates vacant properties by introducing new, creative, and temporary retail locations with visual aesthetic. This pop-up program offers local business owners an opportunity to display their products, while simultaneously encouraging the community to shop locally. 

For more information, including a calendar of events, storefront locations, list of participants and retailers, visit Connect with OPEN on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram @openpopupsa and with the hashtag #openpopupsa or #openholidaymarket.
