A revolving showcase for what’s new and next
in retail, dining, recreation and more.
Durham has earned a reputation as “The Startup Hub of the South.” In that spirit, the American Tobacco Campus now invites entrepreneurs and customers to try out new consumer concepts on a revolving schedule in two prime retail spots. It’s not just a series of popups, it’s an ongoing adventure.
MAIN POPUP SPACE: Wonderpuff
Wonderpuff, a handcrafted exploration of cotton candy possibilities powered by a husband and wife duo, will bring their delicious treats to the PopUp @ American Tobacco. The shop will feature some of their classics like lavender, chili mango, & orange cardamom along with exciting beverages like Wonderpop Surprise and Jeddah’s Tea as well as curated snacks from other local food entrepreneurs.
