Battle of the Pop-Up Winner Opens Store
The winner of Gateway Mall’s Battle of the Pop-Up officially opened her first brick-and-mortar location on Friday. For the next four months Deimante Matz will sell her bath bombs, lotions and other spa items inside Gateway Mall rent free.
Matz has been running her company Diamond’s Bath Gems for a little more than a year. In that time, she said she’s sold a fair amount of product online, but samples are incredibly important in her line of work. "With this, people will be able to walk by and give my stuff a try and fall in love with it,” said Matz.
On top of getting to open her store inside the mall, Matz also gets a $500 merchandising package which covers things like signage and table printed displays. Matz said it has taken a lot of hard work to get where she is today, but she has even more work ahead and she’s ready to get going.
