Cash & Carry Tips and Tricks

Another Cash & Carry event is right around the corner! Unlike our other markets, the Cash & Carry events offer immediate delivery to restock inventory instantly. The hallways of AmericasMart are dotted with floor samples, including high-end goods, for you to explore. The temporaries are full of gift items to purchase with no minimum order. Take advantage of our Cash & Carry events as our showrooms begin preparing for our upcoming Atlanta Market.

ATLANTA NEXT CONSTRUCTION: Our campus transformations are at the top of everyone's mind. Our Building 1 Lobby entrances on John Portman Boulevard and Peachtree Street are currently closed. In lieu of these entrances, you can access the building via the walkway located off of Peachtree Street between Hotel Indigo and Ray's in the City. You can also enter from Building 2 and Building 3. There are signs throughout campus providing  necessary directions. Please refer to for the most recent updates.

PLAN YOUR PARKING: The AmericasMart decks in Building 2 and 3 will be open during the Market. If they happen to be full, there are other parking garages around AmericasMart that are a short walk to the marketplace. The current construction on site will not impact parking. A list of garages around AmericasMart is available on the AmericasMart travel page

KNOW WHERE TO LOOK FOR SAMPLES: In addition to those showrooms that choose to offer samples, an expansive cash and carry temporary Market takes place in Building 3, Floor 1. The temps are open 9 a.m. - 5 p.m. on Tuesday and Wednesday, and 9 a.m. - 2 p.m. on Thursday. A full list of participating exhibitors is available here

BRING CASH: Some showrooms will take credit or debit cards, but most will prefer to take cash. If you need more cash, ATMs are located on Building 2 Floor 2, and on Building 3 Floor 1 outside of the Market Café

BRING A CART: Samples purchased 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 your car.

The Building 1 and Building 2 loading docks are on John Portman Boulevard. an additional Building 2 and Building 3 loading docks are on Williams Street.

WRITE ORDERS: Many showrooms offering samples are still writing orders for non-sample merchandise. Use Cash & Carry as another opportunity to order for your store or upcoming projects.

KEEP CALM AND CARRY ON: Please remember that there's a lot of activity and a lot of people on campus during our Cash & Carry events. Please be patient and courteous with both other buyers and showroom personnel. If you need help navigating our campus during construction, please ask an AmericasMart team member on site. 

Mark your calendars for our Spring Cash & Carry event, May 5-7, 2020.
