List of Opportunities: There is an array of Specialty Leasing opportunities available within the shopping center. Here are some examples:

kiosk

Kiosk the simple definition of a kiosk is a retail unit of approximately 100-200 square feet. The distinct difference between this unit and an RMU (cart) is that you operate your business from inside of it. It is most often a stationary space located in the common area. This can be leased short term or permanent.

rmu

Retail Merchandising Units or Retail Merchandising Unit most commonly referred to as a cart. It is approximately 50 square feet of retail space. You operate your business around it. It is typically mobile and in the common area. RMUs by nature are leased for a minimum of 3 months up to 1 year maximum. This gives you an opportunity to test your product without much overhead expense.

inline
Inline space - also known as store space. The square footage of this pre-existing space can range in size depending on availability. Since inline space is something that the owner of a shopping center wants to have leased on a permanent basis, the availability can vary. Your agreement term is typically 1 year. OR, it can be something that is leased for seasonal use. This opportunity allows you the ability to gauge your potential among other national retailers without a large financial or time commitment.

Pop Up space pop up by definition is “to appear suddenly or unexpectedly”. The Pop Up retail trend creates this same “limited time only” surprise for the customer. Retailers such as Target, JC Penney and eBay have all established creative pop up venues in recent years to introduce new products, build brand awareness, showcase style and design trends and/ or to give away exclusive goodies and treats. This is an excellent format to create a buzz about your product. Pop Up space can be common area, RMU or inline and is customarily 4-6 weeks.

Other Specialty Retail Opportunities: Opportunities exist to promote your business by way of on-site graphics, digital advertising and/or sponsorship. Contact the Specialty Leasing manager for more details.
