ST. PETERS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -- A new opportunity is now available for small business owners in St. Charles County.

Mid Rivers Mall is debuting a new marketplace that lets entrepreneurs test the waters by renting space for one week at a time.

The new marketplace includes the three kiosks small business owners can rent for a $300 a week, plus 15 percent of gross sales more than $3,000. The idea is to allow them to bring in their goods and services to a regional shopping center for a short time and see how it does, without getting stuck in a long contract. The mall spokesperson says they’ve gotten interest from a variety of businesses.

“We’ve had real estate agents, we’ve had jewelry designers and fashion designers,” said Priscilla Visintine. “It’s really a great opportunity for them to test the market, see how the market reacts to what you’re offering.”

In addition to the three kiosks they unveiled Thursday, they also have one storefront, which they call a pop-up shop, which works similarly with the renting business changing out each week.
