Heart and Soul Pop-up Shop: Invest in Comm-UNITY was created out of the lack of platforms for black consumers to support and empower their local businesses around the city of Chicago. Therefore, Heart and Soul Pop-up Shop was created as a series of events to provide a meaningful space for consumers entrepreneurs, and business owners to connect, support one another, and have a good time. This community pop-up shop welcomes the youth, community leaders and organizations, outreach programs, nonprofits, religious institutions and more to come together under the themes of investing in self, community, and local businesses. Also, this event is after the biggest shopping time of the year. Get your Christmas shopping done at the Heart and Soul while supporting yous local business owners.
