“Westside Market is a vibrant creative community of unique shop’s carefully curated to offer a diverse range of high-quality products. Each shop, owned by independent entrepreneurs often referred to as members, occupy a dedicated space within our store, allowing them to personalize their space. Members are assigned a unique identification number, which they affix to their merchandise tags, alongside pricing details and a brief description of each item.
Our customers have the delightful opportunity to explore hundreds of these charming small shops all conveniently housed under one roof in our local community. When they decide to make a purchase, they simply bring the item to our front register. Our dedicated staff then scans our members tags into our efficient Point of Sale system. This process ensures that the respective member receives proper credit for the sale. Members can easily access their daily sales data by logging into their accounts.
At the end of each month, Westside Market issues a payment to each member, calculated as their total sales revenue minus the applicable charges.
One of the exceptional features of Westside Market is that members don’t need to be physically present at the store to facilitate sales. All they need to do is set up their shop space, tag their merchandise, and let our dedicated team take care of the rest. This approach allows individuals to launch a new business and showcase their products without the stress and expenses associated with establishing a brick-and-mortar store. Additionally, it provides the flexibility to maintain a day job while simultaneously running a shop within our community. We’ve even had success stories of members who were so satisfied with their experience that they transitioned from their day jobs to become full-time members, expanding their presence in all our locations.”
Our pricing structure consists of a monthly marketing fee for the chosen space, alongside a modest commission fee. For detailed information regarding these charges, we recommend discussing your specific needs with our store manager. They will provide you with all the necessary details and answer any questions you may have.
We carefully review all the applications in our database to determine the best-suited candidate for the available space. Our selection process takes several factors into consideration, including the size and location of the space, the uniqueness and quality of the items to be sold, the visual appeal of the shop, and the experience and background of the shop owner. This comprehensive evaluation ensures that each chosen member is aligned seamlessly with the specific space we have to offer.
