Revel Systems, the leader in iPad point-of-sale solutions, recently announced the opening of their first pop-up store in Ghirardelli Square. In a joint effort between Revel Systems, Pay Pal, and PopUpShopUp, a pop-up store will host a multi-use space allowing retail businesses the opportunity to have a physical store for the first time.

"We are seeing that urban development groups and businesses are willing to work together to establish temporary retail spaces in major cities across the states. One of the biggest barriers to entry for many small businesses has been payments and a proper point-of-sale system, which Revel and PayPal have made easy," said Steven Lucero of PopUpShopUp. "The potential for local businesses to benefit from this type of arrangement is limitless."

The following businesses will be at the pop-up site through May 19.

Beautiful You - Handmade beauty products
Blank Shoppe - Contemporary fashion brands & hand selected items with a social cause
Bushakan - Artisan Wood Gifts
Dodocase - American made iPad and iPhone cases, laptop sleeves
