What our vendors need to know:   Rental Agreement Information:

  • Why? Having a vendor presence will help guide our shop and serve as eyes and ears on the sales floor. This creates continuity and customer service while keeping the cost of our overhead down and prices of our booth spaces competitive. You will be encouraged to assist with sales and general questions as they arise. A lead cashier will be staffed at all times – this does not mean you have to staff the store.

Pricing:

Booth/shelf prices will vary depending on size and location within the building to be determined by managers.

  • It is our goal to have a majority of the building full of product and not all spaces will be front and center.
  • We offer various size booths as well as shelves and showcases. If you like a space that is currently unavailable you can place your name on a waiting list with the space specified. Final placement will be at manager’s discretion.
