We have 135+ vendors and 209+ spaces around the Lehigh Valley and our numbers are still growing! Our vendors feature antiques & collectibles from the early 1800’s to mid-century modern. We also encourage unique items – all are displayed in an attractive & inviting setting at our antique mall.
The Slatington Marketplace (hereinafter “Marketplace”) provides a thriving environment within which talented merchants can prosper. The Marketplace enthusiastically welcomes energetic, experienced or new merchants to contribute to and participate in the success of the Marketplace so we have the best antiques for you.
The Slatington Marketplace leases space in the market on a monthly basis. Leases automatically renew for monthly terms unless terminated by either party with appropriate written notice.
The Leases are not automatically assignable. If the merchant should wish to sell his/her business to another party, the prospective merchant needs to be approved and accepted as a tenant by the Marketplace. If the Marketplace approves the prospective purchaser, the Marketplace’s prior lease with the selling tenant will be terminated, and the Marketplace will enter into a new lease with the approved purchaser. The final decision on approval of a new merchant rests exclusively with the Marketplace. The Slatington Marketplace may reject any proposed new tenant without stating a reason.
In evaluating a proposed new tenant, the Marketplace will consider indicators of success such as (in no particular order and without excluding other factors):
- Business Experience
- Retail Experience
- Merchandising Talent
- Financial Stability, flexibility and adequate capital for purchase of fixtures, inventory and startup expenses
- Customer service attitude and conduct
- Reputation in the community
- Intended commitment of time to the business
- Work Ethic
- Special talents and capabilities
- Access to stable sources of supplies/product
- Intended products or services offered
In reaching a decision regarding a proposed new tenant, the Slatington Marketplace considers the above factors and others. Regrettably, the Marketplace is unable to accept every new applicant and therefore reserves the right to reject any proposed new tenant.
It is imperative that each vendor keeps his or her booth(s) clean and tidy, and that the vendor’s merchandise is in line with the type and quality we expect from our vendors.
We look forward to considering you to join our Marketplace family. Contact us today.
