In anticipation of Valentine’s Day, Charlotte Center City Partners has announced five pop-up shops that will take place in uptown this week. These shops will give shoppers an opportunity to buy gifts for significant others, for friends, or for themselves before Valentine’s Day on Sunday.  Uptown workers rejoice as you now have five reasons to get out of the office, and zero excuses for not having time to get a gift for the big day.

Per the release from Charlotte Center City Partners, the pop-up shops are part of the Charlotte Center City Partners’ Shop Uptown campaign, which hopes to encourage and facilitate retail in Center City.
