Kobey's Pet Policy - Pets Welcome! Last month Kobey's changed it's no pets policy and is now allowing both shoppers and sellers to bring animals inside the market. Pet owners should be aware Kobey's cannot provide water or shade. Pet owners should bring water for their animals and understand the blacktop gets hot on sunny days. All animals must be leashed and owners are responsible for cleaning up after their pets. Kobey's has also installed a doggy waste station. Please look for it!
Kobey's Goes Ticketless Starting in April 2013, Kobey's is changing the way it sells sellers licenses switching to a management software program called Booth Tracker. Management will no longer have stacks of paper space tickets for vendors to choose from. Using Booth Tracker, managers and vendors can easily see what spaces are available and all sales will be recorded electronically. Kobey's will issue vendor ID cards which will be used to purchase spaces and also for daily vendor check-in. If you are a seller who has questions about joining Kobey's or about Booth Tracker, please contact Anthony or Joe Pretto at (619) 523-2700.
