Shop Local, Shop Small!

The City of Caledonia Holiday Pop Up Shop initiative is a response to current building vacancies in downtown Caledonia. This program was designed in partnership with the City of Caledonia Economic Development Authority (EDA) with support through a grant awarded to the City of Caledonia from the Southern Minnesota Initiative Foundation (SMIF). The Holiday Pop Up Shop initiative allows community members with business ideas to temporarily trial their business concept, introduce a new product line, test a new market, or generate awareness of a product.
