Enterprise agency Menta has helped two Ipswich businesses to promote their goods and services through a “pop-up shop”.

GenR8, a membership loyalty card scheme which offers discounts at a range of local businesses, and TT’s Authentic Accessories, which sells handmade items including handbags, jewellery and soap, were each allowed space within the Princes Street branch of banking group Barclays in Ipswich.

Leanne Castle from Menta, which is based in Bury St Edmunds, said: “It’s great to be able to support new businesses by giving them this exposure with the support of Barclays.”
