Thank you for your interest in The Cotton Company! We are proud your experience in our store or our reputation has led you to inquire about business opportunities within. Our mission to create the ultimate shopping experience drives our efforts to please our customers and motivates us to offer the most unique product mix available in a marketplace setting.

If you feel you are ready to join the ranks of the best vendors in the business, please complete and return an application to us by mail, fax, or in person as soon as possible. After management has reviewed your application, you will be invited in for a face-to-face interview where we can evaluate your offerings and answer any questions you may have about our business. Potential success is fully dependent on how well your business and ours fit together.

A Marketplace AisleWhen your application is approved, we will match you with the most appropriate space for your business. If the space you desire is not available at the time you apply, you will be placed on a waiting list. If for some reason you are not approved the first time you apply, do not be discouraged. Our goal is your success. If we feel your business plan or idea is not fully developed, we may suggest you develop your ideas or theme more strongly and encourage you to reapply. While some marketplaces accept anyone who applies, we feel it is in both your, our, and the customer's best interest to help you be as prepared as possible for your new business venture!
