The Urban Emporium

Urban Emporium

The Urban Emporium is Mobile's only retail incubator and was established to help ensure the success of new or expanding retailers in Downtown Mobile. The Urban Emporium is a project of the Downtown Mobile Alliance and Springboard to Success, Inc. The incubator offers training in all aspects of retailing, from loss prevention to inventory control, in addition to regular meetings with an experienced retail consultant. In its first year and a half of operation, three tenants moved out of the Emporium into their own storefronts.
