Peddlers & Solicitors

Licenses for Door-to-Door Sales

Solicitors and Peddlers require a license from the city. The license is available at City Hall. There are certain exemptions for nonprofit organizations, garage sales, auctions, vendors of perishable commodities and others.

The application must be submitted to City Hall with a picture ID and must complete a background check.


To prevent sale solicitations, you may place a "Peddlers and Solicitors Prohibited" sign on or near the entrance of your home.

If you experience a harassing salesperson or violation of a "Peddlers and Solicitors Prohibited" sign, please call the Wright County Sheriff's Office at 763-682-1162 immediately after the person leaves, so WCSO can respond before the solicitor/peddler moves out of the area.

All licensed solicitors/peddlers must carry a permit issued by the city. There are certain exemptions from the licensing process for non-profit and certain limited types of sales.
