Derby Street Shops to Debut Four Pop-Ups by Local Businesses This Holiday Season
Hingham, MA – Derby Street Shops is celebrating local businesses this holiday season with the arrival of four exciting pop-ups. Sports art and apparel store, I Love Boston Sports, is now open and women’s fashion retailer, Cattivo, Cape Cod beach brand Wears Woody, and returning fan-favorite surf shop, Levitate, will debut in the coming weeks.
This special community-centric combination of retail comes in perfect time for holiday shopping and will showcase a variety of offerings and gifts, from high-end fashion and must-have accessories to unique sports art and cold weather essentials.
“This holiday season, we find it more important than ever to support local businesses. Through our seasonal pop-up program, we are thrilled to celebrate incredible entrepreneurs within our community and to allow our guests to shop local and shop small with this exciting mix of pop-ups. Each business brings something special to the property and rounds out our collection of shops for the best holiday shopping experience,” says Sherri Schuler, General Manager of Derby Street Shops.
All four pop-ups will join Derby Street’s Small But Mighty initiative this season, where Derby Street’s small businesses will be highlighted leading up to Small Business Saturday (11/28) and throughout the holiday season. The Small But Mighty initiative will encourage shoppers to support the local shops and eateries that help make Derby Street one-of-a-kind, and all thirteen of Derby Street’s local businesses will be easily identified with a Small But Mighty sticker in the window.

Derby Street also adds the ultimate beach brand, Wears Woody, to its pop-up collection. Originating on Cape Cod, Owner Mike Norwood got his start by parking his iconic Woody wagon near the ferry in Woods Hole, transforming it into a pop-up shop on wheels. The brand’s bold coastal style, and upscale yet casual apparel and accessories which pay homage to its namesake Woody, quickly caught on. Today, Wears Woody is a retail pioneer, specializing in “mill-to-market movement” sustainably sourced and locally manufactured goods all produced “on demand” in the company’s backyard in Everett, MA. As an added bonus, through Woody’s Drive Over Diabetes mission, Wears Woody donates 7% of every in-store and online sale to a group of non-profits that share in its determination to make a difference in the lives of people with diabetes and help fund a cure. Wears Woody’s pop-up will be located in Suite 111 next to Francesca’s.
