Essential Tips for Cash & Carry
PLAN YOUR PARKING:
The AmericasMart parking decks in Buildings 2 and 3 will be open for the show. If they are full, there are other parking garages around AmericasMart that are a short walk to the marketplace.
KNOW WHERE TO LOOK FOR SAMPLES:
Select showrooms throughout campus offer floor samples for sale. Walk the floors and look for signs in showroom windows to find great deals.
SHOP THE TEMPS:
In addition to those showrooms that choose to offer samples, our expansive collection of Temporary exhibitors offer instant inventory with no minimums. Temps are located in Building 3, Floor 1 and are open 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. on Thursday.
BRING A CART:
Samples purchased during the show are cash and carry, meaning you’ll need to take them with you when you leave. Avoid returning to your car over and over by bringing a small cart for all of your finds. With so much traffic on the floors, please be careful and courteous of others when navigating your cart.
LOCATE THE DOCKS:
Larger items such as furniture that cannot be carried out by hand or on a cart will need to be picked up at the loading docks. When you’re ready to pick up your items, take your car to the loading dock associated with the building where you bought the piece and an AmericasMart staff member will help you load it into your car.
The Building 1 and Building 2 loading docks are on John Portman Blvd. The Building 3 loading dock is on Williams Street.
Many showrooms offering samples are still writing orders for non-sample merchandise. Use this show as another opportunity to order for your store or projects.
