Yes. Main Street Market Hub (The Hub) offers 6 month contracts. All vendors are expected to fulfill the full length of the contract.
Transactions will be reflected in real time in your online vendor account. You will be able to login to your account that you will create with our POS system. These reports will also serve as reminders to restock and ensure you maintain a healthy supply of inventory within your booth.
Yes! The Hub is open 6 days a week except for major U.S. holidays.
Yes, The Hub collects 9% on all sale transactions. This will be used to pay for marketing, plastic bags and card processing fees.
No, Main Street Market Hub handles this task for you. Upon each transaction, Main collects the sales tax and reports it to the state on a monthly basis.
There is one sales period for each calendar month: the first day of each calendar month through the last day of the same month (e.g. April 1st – April 30th). Sales accumulated during the sales period are applied towards your rent and commission fees. A check will be issued on the 10th of the following month if your sales exceeded your rent balance and commission fees. If not, a balance will be due.
The Hub uses an online system for which you’ll have your own account. We do not use hand-written tags. The online system generates barcodes for your items. You’ll be responsible for uploading all of your inventory into your account and printing the barcodes to put onto your merchandise. All items for sale in your booth must be in your online account.
Your booth is expected to be fully stocked at all times. A good rule of thumb is to have at least three to four times your monthly lease worth of product available for sale.
The following items are not allowed to be sold within the store:
- Alcohol, drugs, drug paraphernalia, or weapons
- Animals of any kind
- Open flames, fireworks, dangerous chemicals, electric heaters or hot plates
- Counterfeit, pirated, bootleg, or stolen goods.
- X-rated movies, adult toys, or anything of the like
- Products with certain profanity may not be openly displayed *Will be discussed further with owners.
Not at all! Please feel free to share your unique product with us!
You can stock your booth any time during normal business hours. The Hub offers several vendor work nights throughout the year providing an opportunity for you to work on your booth after regular store hours as well. These nights are great for loud booth work that may be too disruptive to complete during store hours (i.e. excessive hammering, wall build out, drilling, etc.).
Each space is 10×10 in the future there may be options for smaller spaces. When those are available we will make a public announcement on our social media pages. So follow our Facebook or Instagram pages at Garden City Downtown Vision. Only once we’ve reviewed an application and set up an appointment to move forward will we disclose the spaces that are a good match for a specific vendor and product.
Vendors in our location will pay a monthly rental fee as well as a commission on sold items. Pricing varies throughout the store depending on whether you require electricity or not.
