eBay (San Jose, CA) will open three temporary storefronts called “Hard to Find” gift shops as part of its holiday promotional strategy, Chain Store Age reports.

The pop-up shops will open in Detroit, Houston and Miami, with each focusing on a different holiday category, the article says.

The Hard to Find Sneaker Shop in Detroit will run from Nov. 19-20 and feature an assortment from retailer Urban Necessities as well as rare Nike sneakers. The Hard to Find Collectibles Shop in Houston will run from Dec. 3-4 and carry trading cards and various memorabilia. The Hard to Find Luxury Shop in Miami will run from Dec. 10-11 and feature rare timepieces and other items from high-end brands.

This isn’t eBay’s first foray into physical spaces, the article notes. In 2019, the online marketplace opened a one-day pop-up in Manhattan called the “Black Friday Escape Room” that allowed guests to participate in holiday challenges and visit a “Zen Room” serving refreshments with merchandise on display.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
