‘Very pushy’ door-to-door salespeople reported in Park City

by Jay Hamburger The Park Record

The Park City Police Department last week received at least four complaints about door-to-door salespeople, a string of reports that is uncommon in the city.

In three of the cases, the police were told the salespeople were acting aggressively. Two of the people told the police the salespeople were offering cleaning products. Public police logs did not provide details about the other cases. City Hall outlaws door-to-door sales.

The cases included:

  • on Friday, June 1 at 8:14 p.m., when two women were reported on Doc Holliday Drive selling cleaning products. The person who contacted the police said the women were "very pushy" and was concerned they might be casing the place for future criminal activity.
  • at 7:22 p.m. on June 1, the police were called to Lakeview Drive, where solicitors were being "very aggressive and pushy," the police were told. Public police logs did not provide details about what they were selling.
  • at 6:22 p.m. on June 1 a door-to-door salesperson on Stryker Avenue became aggressive and refused to leave, the police were told. The salesperson went to the next door, the police were told. The police logs did not provide details about what was being sold.
  • on Thursday, May 31 at 8:21 p.m., the police received a report from someone on Hidden Splendor Court, where three people went to a house selling cleaning supplies within 30 minutes of each other.

    It is illegal for businesses to solicit customers on a door-to-door basis in Park City unless they hold the proper license. It was not immediately clear whether the people reported last week had the licenses they need.
