What type of Insurance is required?
Anyone renting our space is required to have General Commercial Liability Insurance with Little Mountain Shop as the additional insured.
If you have business insurance, check with your insurance provider to see if they can add on Temporary Event/Pop-up insurance. Some business policies have a "Tradeshow" clause saying that you are covered for temporary retail situations. If this is the case we will require a copy of this policy indicating this clause.

Yes, if you meet certain government requirements and obtain a license. Please refer to the following websites for Special Occasion Licenses' (SOL).

There is a $500 damage deposit which is returned to you upon successful completion of inspection. There is also a $150 cleaning/electrical fee per booking.
What time can my event go until?
There are homes behind our store with children, so all events must be done by 10pm. Any excessive noise will draw complaints and we want to respect our neighbours.
