Cosmic Collective Juices Up Memshop Pop-up with Smoothies, Snacks and Yoga Classes



Wow. What a difference a pop-up store can make.

 

Customers packed the holiday Memshop Pop-up in Overton Square Sunday afternoon, browsing the pop-up store for crafts and art by some 40 local artists. Plus, the pop-up offered live music, yoga classes, and food.

 

Shoppers and vendors energized the vacant storefronts on Madison near Cooper with a feel-good vibe, a precursor to the promise of the square’s redevelopment as an entertainment hub.

 

I was happy to discover Cosmic Coconut in the middle of the retail mix, branded as Cosmic Collective for Memshop’s duration. Cosmic Coconut, located in the Sanderlin Centre in East Memphis, is an organic juice bar offering smoothies, juices, and food such as a homemade hummus and the Cosmic quinoa burger.

For Memshop, the juice bar is part of a collective with other vendors, including Bluff City Coffee, artisan bakers, and Yippie Hippie Granola. In addition, the collective is offering a series of classes during Memshop's retail hours. Look for Kundalini yoga, belly dancing, kid’s yoga, couples foot massage, and meditation and relaxation techniques, among others.

 

Memshop continues for two more weeks Thursdays through Sundays. Click here for updates on activities and store hours.
