WHAT IS A PEDDLER?
You are a peddler if you go uninvited from house to house, place to place, or street to street to sell goods, wares or merchandise you are carrying with you.
WHAT IS A TRANSIENT MERCHANT?
You are a transient merchant if you are temporarily in Prescott to sell goods, wares or merchandise from a fixed location. That fixed location must be a structure that is approved for your specific use by the Planning & Zoning Department.
HOW IS A SOLICITOR DIFFERENT FROM A PEDDLER OR TRANSIENT MERCHANT?
As a solicitor, you might go uninvited from house to house, place to place, or street to
street just as a peddler does. The difference is that you will be taking orders of merchandise for future delivery or orders for services to be performed in the future.
