    Shopping the Merchant Mall

    The vendors in our Merchant Mall are from many different states. When they handle sales, your credit card will appear to have sales from many different states. Recently, some credit card companies have been alerted to all of these transactions in so many different states that they put a hold on the credit card. Please take a minute to notify your credit card company (before you come to the show) to tell them you will be attending an event with vendors from many states so they don’t hold or cancel your credit card while you are at the show. With your credit card company alerted, you can let the shopping begin.
