OUR PROCESS The first step to becoming a vendor is submitting an application. The application is easy to fill out and answers important questions that help us understand your business and your product. Once you’ve submitted your application, we will file it for review. If we decide to move forward with your application, we will contact you to set up an appointment. During the appointment, we will discuss the space available for your product, the final pricing, and the contract details. Our vendors are selected based on space availability and appropriate product fit for the store. We work hard to curate a store with products and small shops that fit the demands of our customers and local demographic. Unfortunately, this means not every applicant will be accepted. Additionally, we are currently on a waitlist for many product categories, however all applications are saved in our system. If you do not hear from us immediately, you may still hear from us in the future. Thank you and we look forward to receiving your application!
What’s the first step? The first step in our process is to fill out a vendor application.
How long does it take for my application to be reviewed? Applications are reviewed based on available openings, which may be immediately or may be 6 months from now. If your product is a great match for Corrales Teas, we will contact you when we have the appropriate opening.
I haven’t heard anything conclusive yet about whether or not I’ve been selected–does this mean I haven’t been selected? We will contact you if we decide to move forward with your application and set up a personal meeting. If you haven’t heard from us it could mean one of several things: your product may not be the best fit for Corrales Teas, or your product may not be the right fit for our store at the present moment, or we may not currently have the proper space available for your product.
Which spaces are available now? Space availability is always changing. We work to place vendors strategically within the store for the benefit of both vendors and shoppers. Only once we’ve reviewed an application and set up an appointment to move forward will we disclose the space that are a good match for a specific vendor and product.
How much does it cost to rent a space? Vendors pay a monthly rent as well as a small commission fee. Once we’ve reviewed an application and set up an appointment to move forward will we disclose the final pricing on the space that would be a good match. Approximate space rental price for a 2’ shelf space is $60 per month.
Does the store keep a commission as well? Yes, the store keeps a small commission in addition to the monthly rent payment. This commission pays for things like the staff, advertising, and the materials necessary to operate the front desk and sell vendors’ products.
How long are the contract commitments? The initial commitment required is 3 months, and then continues on a month-to-month basis.
What’s required of vendors? Vendors are required to abide by their contracts, manage an attractive appearance of their booth space, engage in communication with the staff when necessary, and take responsibility for their product and sales.
Are vendors required to work the registers? No, vendors are not required (or ever expected) to work the registers because we have trained staff who work the floor and manage the sales at the register.
Can I share a space with someone? Each space is separated for vendors to create and personalize to their own liking (within limits). If you have a business partner you’d like to work with, please include this information on your application so we can review both products and styles.
