- How much does it cost to rent a booth?
Booth fees start at $75.00 to $100 a month for a space that is 2′ deep, 4′ wide and 6′ tall. The commission is 10% – 12% and there is also a fully-refundable security deposit that is equal to one month’s booth fee.
- How often do I get paid for my sales?
Vendors are paid for their sales every month. The booth fee and commission is automatically deducted.
- What types of products can I sell?
We have vendors that are successful selling a huge variety of products. The most important things to consider is whether or not your products will appeal to customers based on their popularity, quality, variety and price. We can help you figure this out.
- How do I know what I’ve sold?
Most vendors visit the store regularly to see what they’ve sold. You can also track your sales on the internet so you don’t need to visit the store to know what has sold.
- When and how often should I re-stock?
Vendors re-stock during normal business hours and they can re-stock as often as they want. The most successful vendors are those who keep their booths well-stocked all the time and pay extra attention to their booth during busy holidays.
- How long is the contract?
Booths are leased in six month increments. Shorter terms can sometimes be arranged for a 25% increase to the monthly booth fee.
- What determines whether or not my products are accepted?
Applications are judged first and foremost on product quality and variety. We also factor in whether or not the products are a good fit and if we have room for more of a particular category.
- What about shoplifting?
Shoplifting is an unfortunate part of being in retail. We use a combination of video cameras and electronic security tags to minimize theft.
