Shopping Blocks Explained

We are continuing to offer tickets via our shopping blocks. We’ve heard your incredible feedback and how much you enjoy shopping in this format. It is an enjoyable experience for everyone, while doing our part to help keep everyone safe.

 

How do shopping blocks work?

When tickets go on sale, you can choose what day and time you would like to shop. We have chosen to keep the blocks at reduced capacity even though retail is allowed to fully operate at 100%. We still want to be cautious and give you the most enjoyable experience. For now, we have chosen to operate between a 45-65% occupancy. As we get closer to the date we may choose to release more tickets but for now this is what feels good to our team.

 

Red River Exhibition Park is a large space with 39,000 sq feet. Booths may have multiple people browsing/shopping at a time. We have made our aisles wide, 15-25ft to allow for space for people to stand to the side to wait to shop if needed or you feel it is crowded. As well, we have constant overhead eyes on the aisles and have staff members to monitor the flow of shoppers.

 

Shopping at Third+Bird will feel like grocery shopping during the holidays. There will be moments of brief contact, you may have to wait your turn to look at product. At times it might feel busy. You will be around larger volumes of people. This is not a shopping experience for someone who is not comfortable with larger crowds and brief close contacts.
