**BAZAAR VENDOR GUIDELINES**
Welcome! If you wish to be a vendor at the Apex Mosque Bazaar, please take a moment to review our set-up and operating procedures.
⦁ Apex Mosque reserves the right to remove, without refund or recourse, any exhibitor who misrepresents himself or his product. In addition, Apex Mosque reserves the right to reject the application of any vendor deemed unsuitable for the Bazaar.
⦁ Any signage or display props must be securely attached to the booth or stall so as not to interfere with or impede foot traffic.
⦁ If you are a food vendor, you should ensure your food is kept clean from dust and other things. And ensure enough refrigeration is there to be sure that it doesn’t get spoiled midway which will force a change of plans.
⦁ Smile, be pleasant, and engage your customers. Sincere flattery won’t hurt.
⦁ Know your competitors and their selling or bargaining methods. Keep your prices competitive.
