The following information is from Officer Michele Lentz with the Greenville Police Department:
Please be aware that all door-to-door salespeople within the City limits must have a business license issued by the City of Greenville for the current calendar year. They must be selling a legitimate product or service and are not allowed to solicit money for their own personal use.
We receive numerous complaints each year when the weather warms up about rude, pushy, and aggressive salespeople. One resident even had a girl throw a cup of water at her when she said she didn’t want to purchase anything! If you encounter a door-to-door salesperson who is pushy, overly aggressive, or seems suspicious, please call the police at 271-5333.
