What is required to make door-to-door sales?

The City requires all individuals traveling door-to-door selling products or soliciting for commercial business purposes (for-profit solicitor), to be licensed/registered by City Hall.

City Badges

As part of the license application review process, in an effort to protect the public safety and welfare of our community, City staff conducts a criminal background investigation on each individual. Upon City approval, each individual is issued an official City Badge (JPEG) which will have the City seal embossed on it.  The badges are to be worn on the outside of clothing so that it is easily seen.  If a peddler or for-profit solicitor comes to your door and is not wearing a City issued badge, please call us at 763-576-2740.

Hours Permitted

This door-to-door activity is only allowed to occur between 9 am and 8 pm

Preventing Unwanted Sales

If you do not want this type of activity on your property you may hang a sign stating “Peddlers and Solicitors Prohibited” in letters at least a half-inch high at the entrance to your property. If you encounter any issues or have problems with a peddler/solicitor, please contact the Anoka Police Department at 763-576-2800, or in the case of an emergency, call 911.
