SHOP SIZES AND PRICING
All of our shop spaces are always full and we currently have a waiting list of approved applicants to have a shop with us. If you are flexible with the size shop you can work with that will make the process of having an available shop for you quicker.
Things to think about when deciding on what size shop would best suit your business
- More space = more room for products and profits
- If you have larger items than a bigger shop would be more appropriate
- If you have smaller items a smaller space may be for you. But make sure you are ustilising all the space to fit as many items in as possible. More products = more sales.
The great thing about VEND is you can always up size and down size depending on what will best suit you business!
