Pop-up shops rarely make headlines, but the White Sox holiday shop is worth the bold announcement.

You can get the latest White Sox gear at a pop-up shop in Orland Square Mall between October 15 and January 15.

The shop will be next to the Apple Store on the lower level of the mall located at 288 Orland Square Drive in Orland Park.

Pop-up shops have “popped up” (excuse the terrible pun) inside of shopping malls all over the country. These shops occupy a dedicated space for a short amount of time – from one day to several months. They tend to offer specialty merchandise or limited edition items. In many malls, all of the tables, shelves, and display systems are left in stores for pop-up retailers to use at any given time. By offering pop-up space, shopping malls are able to generate short-term rent revenue. And, shoppers are given exciting new merchandise to buy.

The Sox pop-up shop will offer more than just the latest gear. The team will also feature special events at the shop for fans.

On October 20, the first special event takes place as the Sox will have game-used memorabilia for sale. This event is sponsored by the Chicago White Sox Charities Garage Sales. If you cannot make it to the mall on October 20, the team will have the same type of items available on other dates (they haven’t been announced yet).

Southpaw is scheduled to show up at the shop on at least two days: October 25 and November 9. His October event is for the mall’s Boo Bash, which takes place between 3 PM and 6 PM at the Upper Level Court. Southpaw will be at the mall on October 25 between 3 PM and 4 PM. The Boo Bash will feature dance performances, cake decorating, make-and-take crafts, Halloween photo areas, snacks, a silent auction for charity, and glitter tattoos. Details about the November 9 event have not yet been shared by the shopping mall or the White Sox.

Along with Southpaw, ChiSox players and ambassadors are scheduled to appear. The dates for those events have not been announced on the White Sox website or by the shopping mall. You could be pleasantly surprised if you are out shopping at Orland Square Mall.
