The benefits of becoming a VENDOR:

Along with all the usual activities involved in running a retail space (like staffing the store, general maintenance, handling payment transactions and keeping inventory) we offer the following services to our valued artisans:

  • All purchases are beautifully wrapped in tissue paper and packed in decorative bags
  • Hourly upkeep of the space and the shelves, including tidying
  • Knowledgeable staff member on hand to answer customer questions about your products
  • Vendor bios and business logos are displayed throughout the retail space and on the website
  • Consistent store hours. The store is open at minimum 5 days a week. (With extended hours leading up to holidays)
  • Security cameras, Secured Locked Location. 
  • Inventory management system with Monthly Inventory Report.
  • Monthly sales reports and payouts via e-transfer on the 10th of the following month
  • Social media, PR support and  media coverage

Some of the unique things that we offer our Vendors at Peach Place:

  • All store shelving is provided, so the displays have a cohesive look. That means vendors don’t have to personally purchase a dedicated display shelf and go through the hassle of lugging it to the store and setting it up. Of course, you are more than welcome to bring in small display supports to use within the larger shelves.
  • We offer every vendor a FREE VERY Small storage space, to hold extra product. This is especially helpful for vendors who are located a distance from the store, as it allows them to keep more products ‘at the ready’ for restocking and it also reduces the need to visit the store frequently for restocking. (Although, we are always thrilled to have our vendors pop in for a visit at any time!)
  • We can restock and merchandise your shelves with product from the storage area if you wish, for FREE.
  • We also offer FREE restocking services for those who can’t make it to the store in person. Just send us your goods via mail/courier and we will put them out for you.
  • FREE customer pick ups for sales you make elsewhere (e.g. on your personal website, through markets etc.) As long as the product has already been paid for, the customer can pick it up at Peach Place at no extra cost to you and at no extra cost to them. If you need us to accept payment for the item on your behalf, then commission fees will apply to cover payment processing, admin and accounting costs. Market must be informed of customer pickups daily.
  • In house photography capability for stock advertising.
