Storefront is a marketplace for short term retail space (think pop-up shops). People with space simply create a listing and decide how much they would like to charge per day, per week or per month. In doing so, Storefront “helps brands, sellers, and merchants to create their first brick and mortar retail experience.” Instead of large retail landlords (Storefront) and multinational hotel operators (Airbnb), technology is allowing individuals and SMEs to participate in these marketplaces. Supply is being decentralized and anyone with extra space can participate.
