Store rental Information

(Please read all before you email us with questions! Thank you!)

Have you always wished your brand would have its own storefront? A place people can sample, feel, and see your product? The Modern Makers shop is a storefront location with a market feel that rents our retail space to small shops like yours. No one is too big or too small to rent space and showcase their talents. Our highest paid vendor earned over $8000 in a month. We have had vendor approached for other wholesale opportunities, collaborations and so much more networking then just their sales in store!

Peterborough loves to go to their local shops, they are invested in their weekend farmers markets as a family or friend weekend outing, and we are quickly becoming a staple in the community just like that! Our variety of vendors bring in shoppers of all ages looking for something unique and made in their home country.  Each month the storefront will be a month long market vibe so that our shoppers can space out and come shop with us safely and at a distance. Every month we rent out spaces to 36 vendors who can mail or drop off their products and join our storefront. This means that your products will be displayed and showcased in our store and customers have a month to shop with your brand. You are welcome to mail or drop off your products and we will do the rest!Every month we will try to have speciality vendors come in to do personalised on the spot or pop in for the day with their shop. This feature will entice a new group of customers every month.

How much money will I make?

Isn't about the money.. okay it is a little BUT this is a platform, a way to be seen, a way to reach out and talk to your customer, to meet new customers, to find your niche. This is a learning experience, a way to grow it is SO MUCH MORE then a revenue stream. Our feedback from customers has been positive and they are proud to support all small businesses in the shop. The community loves to stop in and check out your stock in person and then order from you personally for birthday Christmas and future events. Even if you don’t have a successful monetary month we hope that you remember being in a store front is so much beyond that! Exposure of your brand, online orders, future orders, custom orders... We have local stores stocking us all the time to find wholesale for their stores.
