RIGHT TO SELL/COPYRIGHT INFRINGEMENTS
The Vendor hereby represents and warrants that the Vendor holds full title (or has received, in writing, the authorization by any necessary parties) to sell the items they are displaying for sale. The Vendor hereby releases the Store from all involvement, liability, and responsibility from any possible copyright infringement actions. Vendor accepts sole responsibility for compliance to any and all copyright laws pertaining to the items they are attempting to sell.
RENT/DUE DATE/LATE FEE
The rental fee for the booth shall be $_____ per month, or any part of the month, and is non-refundable. The rent is for your allocated amount of floor space only. Expanding beyond your rented space subjects you to additional rental fees. Rent is due and is to be paid in full no later than noon, local time, on the FIRST DAY of each month. Any rent not paid in full by this time shall be considered delinquent and will be charged late penalties, and possibly subject you to collection prosecution. The late penalty is an additional accrual of $2.00 per day, or for any part of a day, the rent payment remains delinquent.
It is the responsibility of the Vendor to have rent payments in the cashier office on time to avoid late fees. If the first day of the month is a Sunday, or if the store is not scheduled to be open on the first day of the month, you must have your rent payment submitted prior to the first of the month to avoid late fees. For your convenience, there is a mail slot in the door you can use it to drop your payment off if the store is closed, or you may pay in person, or mail your rent in advance, and we will not cash the rent check until the first. Credit card/debit card payments cannot be accepted for rent payments. A $50 fee will be charged for each returned check.
This original contract shall be binding for ninety (90) consecutive and successive days, commencing from the DATE OF ACTIVATION. After this 90 day term, this contract and all provisions therein, shall automatically renew on a “month-to-month” basis.
CONTRACT CANCELLATION/MOVING OUT
The Vendor may cancel this contract by providing the Store a written, signed “Intent To Vacate” notice. This notice must be presented to the Store more than 30 calendar days prior to desired date of departure. If rent is not current when Vendor submits the Intent To Vacate form, the Vendor grants to the Store, the right to take possession of adequate Vendor merchandise the Store deems to be of equal or greater value to the amount of rent owed. If the Vendor vacates while any rental fee remains unpaid, and/or the Store has not been compensated for any damage the Vendor caused, legal action against the Vendor to recover the missing funds, plus the cost of prosecution, may be commenced.
The price of each item displayed is to be determined by the Consignor. The item price, in addition to the “Vendor Number”, (as assigned to the Consignor by Northwest Consignments), must be legibly written in ink on the item tag. Each individual item MUST have an accepted Item Tag affixed to it with the VENDOR NUMBER and ITEM PRICE being CLEARLY written on it. Failure to comply may result in the inadvertent non-payment, or incorrect payment of sold item(s). Each item shall also have a Store supplied “Item Number” on the tag for inventory tracking, when applicable.
VENDOR PAYMENT/CONSIGNMENT FEE
The Store shall be paid a “Consignment Fee”, (percentage indicated on signature page), for each item sold from the Vendor display. This consignment fee is based on the price at which each item sold. Within 7 business days from the last Saturday of each month, the Store shall make every effort to have the money available to each Vendor, which was received from third party purchases of the collective group of items sold by the Store for the Vendor, less the Consignment Fee. This payment made to the Vendor by the Store shall be in the form of a valid check, valid for sixty (60) days, drafted from the business account of NORTHWEST CONSIGNMENTS, and made payable only to the Vendor.
