What goods or services do you provide? We provide alternative urban art, collectible art toys, DJ equipment, coffee and cupcakes and high-end shoes. And, an in-house DJ will be spinning!
What’s new or exciting at your place? Starting in January, we will host First Fridays. Also, we will have a cell phone charging station! After the new year, we will start DJ workshops.
What strategy do you use to differentiate your business from the competition? We sell rock ‘n’ roll posters — most are signed and numbered. We plan to introduce new urban artists, as well as do everything we can to give back to the community. Our First Friday on Jan. 3 will benefit the Literacy Project in Eagle County.
What can your customers expect from you? Tiger Pop customers can expect a wide array of unique and hard-to-find products and will always enjoy a hip, cool and friendly experience. Examples include “hangover kits,” Low Card beanies, dark chocolate espresso beans, Juxtapose magazines and Bluetooth-compatible, old-school boomboxes.
What’s the most humorous thing that has happened at your business since you opened? The most humorous thing that happened in our shop since we opened was when a new young resident to Vail, already exhausted from working long hours, fell asleep in one of our comfortable chairs while watching Kung Fu on the television in our shop. We offered him a cup of coffee, but he was too embarrassed to accept.
